Re: [Pulp-list] Export ISO file retention Limitation..



Hi, The web published directory for ISO files is cleaned out every time a publish occurs.  If you specify a different directory using the '--export-dir' flag on the command line the file will be added to the directory without overwriting the contents.  Adding the concept of aging or retention to the rpm repo export distributor is a good idea.  Please open an RFE for that particular functionality at https://pulp.plan.io/projects/pulp_rpm/issues.  Thanks!

Subject: [Pulp-list] Export ISO file retention Limitation..

Hi Team, 

Today I have created pulp server in DMZ subnet and from our master server tried to export as an ISO file. So that from disconnected server I can recreate whenever I need to replicate. However the problem is pulp is always keep n version. Second time if we execute export command the current exported ISO file and directory getting deleted before the new ISO file creation. Is there any way to put retention files (I mean number files) on my own? 

Because in this case in the design document we must include the instructions/practice that system admins who is taking ISO export they should first copy the existing file to the common secure share and then only he should execute the export command. 

I thought to understand this n version facility only ?. 

My pulp version is 

[root server1]# rpm -q pulp-server 
pulp-server-2.5.3-1.el7.noarch 

Below I have attached the sample logs.... 

[root Server1 ~]# pulp-admin rpm repo export run --repo-id custom_repo1 
+----------------------------------------------------------------------+ 
Publishing Repository [custom_repo1] 
+----------------------------------------------------------------------+ 
This command may be exited via ctrl+c without affecting the request.
