Re: [Spacewalk-list] Problem Sync'ing a new Channel in Spacewalk.



Hello Marc

About firewall, you can check ports here - https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Satellite/5.6/html-single/Installation_Guide/index.html#sect-Installation_Guide-Additional_Requirements-Firewall

About proxy, in this server, can you access internet web page normally ?! or do you are asked about auth password ?!, btw you can check the necessary conf here - https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Satellite/5.6/html-single/Installation_Guide/index.html#sect-Installation_Guide-Installation-Running_Installation_Program-HTTP_Proxy_Setup

About the sync managed by taskomatic, you have to access Channels - Manage Software Channels - click over your channel, after, in tab Repositories, you can select your repository and click in update repositories, after this click in under tab Sync, here you will define the sync frequency/schedule (daily for example) and click in schedule. You can see a button Sync Now, you can click to force a synchronization. You can see logs about it in /var/log/rhn/reposync/<channel_name>.log

Enjoy! and let me know if you have some doubt about it.

Waldirio,

 

I was looking for the taskomatic and in my search of the GUI, I found the “Spacewalk Configuration” tab with fields that include “HTTP proxy, username, password, … “  I do have some data in those fields, but not sure if they are correct.  Should these be blank?

 

Thanks.

Marc.

Marc, good afternoon

 

Works in my environment, maybe your problem was network connection in the moment of sync. Take a look bellow

 

###

[root spacewalk ~]# rhn-satellite-exporter --list-channels

Channel List:

B = Base Channel

C = Child Channel

 

B centos65-base-x86_64

 

 

[root spacewalk ~]# spacewalk-repo-sync --channel centos65-base-x86_64 --url http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/ --type yum

#### Channel label: centos65-base-x86_64 ####

Packages in repo:              6518

Packages already synced:          0

Packages to sync:              6518

1/6518 : krb5-libs-1.10.3-33.el6-0.x86_64

2/6518 : gprolog-1.3.1-6.el6-0.x86_64

3/6518 : dos2unix-3.1-37.el6-0.x86_64

7/6518 : samba-winbind-clients-3.6.23-12.el6-0.i686

^C

User interrupted process.

[root spacewalk ~]#

Although, if you are using a minor release (5) of 6.5 in this case, I recommend you to sync from http://mirror.globo.com/centos/6.5/os/x86_64/

 

Another point is, you can define the spacewalk to sync for you (I'm not sure if you are just forcing bu cli or preparing the command to add in your crontab for example), just setting in webui, the taskomatic will do this hard work for you! ;-)

 

Let me know if you have another question or about the same.

 

Take Care

Hello all,

 

I’m new to spacewalk and I’m in the process of setting up a spacewalk server.  I believe that I successfully created the Channel (labeled: centos65-base-x86_64) and Repository (centos65-base-x86_64) and linked them via Manage Software Channels.  Now I’m trying to sync the repository from CentOS URL and I get the following error message:

 

[root nw-spcwlk-201 ~]# spacewalk-repo-sync --channel centos65-base-x86_64 --url http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/ --type yum

#### Channel label: centos65-base-x86_64 ####

Repo URL: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/

ERROR: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: centos65-base-x86_64. Please verify its path and try again

Sync completed.

Total time: 0:01:00

 

What am I missing?

 

Thank you.
