Mirroring the Quattor Yum repositories

11 January 2013

Since Quattor 12.12 we have an official Yum repository. These are the steps to mirror it:

Declare a Yum repository in your software server

This is either your Quattor server, or your swrep server if you have them separated. Add the following file:


to your /etc/yum.repos.d .

Run the mirroring

We recommend using reposync. Just do:

$ reposync -p /path/to/repo/path -r quattor-upstream

And that’s it!

Getting updates

For now, we won’t produce any errata updates. Instead we’ll release often.

So, you’ll have to update the baseurl in your repository to the release you want to mirror.
