So, if I understand the patterns (I'm new to using producer/consumer patterns),
I set up a Pulp Server to manage the mirror-repositories (producer)
and point the Cobbler Server at them (as a client/consumer) and let Cobbler feed out the RPM's to the cobbler-ized client-hosts.
You can actually have Cobbler do pass through repositories to pulp if you uncheck 'mirror locally' under advanced (I believe that is the right option).
This sounds very do-able !
I have a repo on my Cobbler server of RPM's that are not from another repo, so I have to run "createrepo" manually whenever I update the collection. The client-hosts connecting thru Cobbler pick up the changes.
OK, one more question: I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. Can I still register these client-hosts with Red Hat Network ? I recently encountered a problem with Cobbler-generated yum mirror-repositories and the yum-rhn-plugin not playing nice together.
I use cobbler+rhn regularly and haven't seen any issues. feel free to bring this up in #cobbler on freenode or on the cobbler list.
and did not get any helpful information, and no one is active on the IRC every time I have tried -- #cobbler Right ? Is there a #cobbler-dev ?
heh.. oops.. i did not remember there was a user list... maybe i should join that one too...
channel varies the times i've been in there
Any time better than others to try ? I'm in UTC-5 (East Coast US) time zone
So would I be spamming to repost to cobbler-dev ? Or might it get some response ?
