Re: [Pulp-list] N00b: Pulp and Cobbler ?



As Phil said, the easiest mix would probably be to create all of the repos in Pulp and just define them as external repos in Cobbler.

But I think for a true split of responsibilities Cobbler would need to support the distribution's repository being external.  If you manually adjust the Kickstart Metadata in the Cobbler's profiles you could probably accomplish this, but cobbler would still need a source for the kernel and initrd in the PXE environment to be defined in the profile..

I cross posted this to the cobbler list.
