Re: [Spacewalk-list] How can my CentOS 6.5 be up to date?



Daryl

You can do like this

####
Repo
repo: repo_centos6.5
url: http://mirror.globo.com/centos/6.5/os/x86_64/

Channel
base channel: centos6.5_x86-64_base
####

After this you will create a child channel

####
Repo
repo: repo_centos6.5_update
url: http://mirror.globo.com/centos/6.5/updates/x86_64/

Channel
base channel: centos6.5_x86-64_base
child channel label: centos6.5_x86-64_update
####

So you will create your environment like example above to all channels you want in your server, but the best practice is, to your clients, you need a controlled environment, so you will clone your base channels to freezed channels, for example, to your development channels, you can create like bellow

dev_centos6.5_x86-64
  |-- dev_centos6.5_x86-64_update
  | ....
  | -- dev_epel_6_x86-64
  | -- dev_vmware_6_x86-64

remember, base channel will receive update all days (if you define this update frequency, in your freezed channel, you will define when will be updated, sure after some tests like, your application will run normally after update gcc or kernel, anyway, you have to test before apply in your production environment.

More 0,50 cents, you may create base channels like:

prod_<base channel name>                 # Production environment
homolog_<base channel name>           # Homolog environment
dev_<base channel name>                  # Development environment

Let me know if was clear the explanation.

Take Care

Waldirio,

Thank you for the information, but I'm still a bit confused on how to configure the channel and repositories.

If I read your post correctly, I should create a CentOS 6.5 channel with a CentOS 6.5 
Base repository with a 6.5 update child repository?  Is that correct?

Thank you.

Daryl

I sent a email to list last month about it (https://www.redhat.com/archives/spacewalk-list/2014-October/msg00222.html), take a look, the idea is the same.

Tell me if is ok to you, about understanding, case not, I can create a post about it in my blog.

B'Regards

Amedeo,

For the 6.5 base I used the URL path:


I am in the process of adding an update channel, and I am using URL:


Are these not correct?  Should I use only http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6?

The documentation leaves a lot to be desired and doesn't provide an example of setting up the repository channel.  I found a YouTube video of a guy setting up a Spacewalk channel and repository.  He used the first URL that I posted.  Is using http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6  a better method?

Any and all suggestions made are greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Daryl

@daryl
did you use relative path for specifically centos 6.5 like:

/mirrors/CentOS/6.5

or you use generic 6 version? like:

/mirrors/CentOS/6

both for base and updates, because centos repos when release new minor release will empty updates directory on the last one

best regards
