|You’re getting an error for a subscription-manager repository, but pasted the config of your spacewalk-client repository. Unless I’m missing something you’re trying to do, you shouldn’t need the subscription-manager repo.|
I’m moving along on this implementation. I’ve successfully created Base Channels for CentOS5, CentOS6 for both the Base and Update Channels! I was also able to sync the errata using Steve’s script, but the erratas seem to be low (only 60 errata for CentOS6 32-bit, Just 6 for CentOS5 64-bit, 0 for CentOS5 32-bit and 318 for CentOS6 64-bit) does this sound correct?
The reason for this post has to do with my next objective… to register clients to the spacewalk server channels! I’ve created the activation keys per channel, but when I attempt to install the spacewalk client, per the instructions I found here: https://fedorahosted.org/spacewalk/wiki/RegisteringClients I get the following problems.
On a CentOS5 32-bit client server, I installed the yum repository, but when I try to install the clients I get the following error messages:
[root nw-vp-001 CentOS5]# yum install rhn-client-tools rhn-check rhn-setup rhnsd m2crypto yum-rhn-plugin (NOTE: fails the same with or without --enablerepo=spacewalk-client.repo) Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: subscription-manager. Please verify its path and try again
Here is the content of the repository:
[root nw-vp-001 CentOS5]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/spacewalk-client.repo name=Spacewalk Client Tools
Any thoughts on what I’m doing wrong now?
