How To Create Local YUM Repository On RHEL 6

In this post, I will by showing how to create a yum local repository on RHEL 6


1) You must be having a RHEL cd with you for creating the YUM repository
-- Load the physical CD to your CD ROM, In case its a physical server, Mount the CD into a mount point (/mnt/cdrom)
-- In my case it is a VM so I have an ISO image (Virtual CD), which is loaded and mounted into a mount point (/mnt/cdrom)

[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 rhel64]# cd /mnt/cdrom
[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 cdrom]# ls -ltr

2) Make a local directory and copy the contents of (/mnt/cdrom/Server) to this newly created local directory

[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 cdrom]# mkdir -p /opt/yum/rhel64
[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 cdrom]# cd /opt/yum/rhel64


[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 Server]# cp -a *.rpm /opt/yum/rhel64/
[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 Server]# uname -a
Linux ajithpathiyil_MT1.lab.com 2.6.32-100.26.2.el5 #1 SMP Tue Jan 18 20:11:49 EST 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

3) Copy the comps-rhel5-server-core.xml file to your local directory as (/opt/yum/rhel64/repodata/comps.xml)

[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 Server]# cd ..
[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 Server]# cd repodata
[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 repodata]# mkdir -p /opt/yum/rhel64/repodata
[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 repodata]# ls -ltr *comps*xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1067627 Jan 20  2011 comps-rhel5-server-core.xml
[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 repodata]# cp *comps*xml /opt/yum/rhel64/repodata/comps.xml

4) Install the createrepo-0.4.11-3.el5.noarch rpm if not installed already.

[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 repodata]# cd /opt/yum/rhel64/
[root@ajithpathiyil_MT1 rhel64]# rpm -ivh create*
