setup a local puppet yum repository (EL5)
Hi, wish to start playing with Puppet by installing the master and client on 2 separate EL5 (Oracle Linux) servers.
The only issue we have is these EL5 servers are not internet facing
I have setup a localised Oracle YUM repository in my environment, and manually moved required Oracle YUM packages (basic things like kernel packages, firefox, samba etc). All my servers look up this YUM server to install packages.
I would like to extend my YUM repo to also include puppet packages, so that I can start installing via my YUM server. Can you advise how to do this? I do not mind manually download the packages or if you think something like rsync I can trigger rsync from an internet enabled server then once I obtain the files I can SCP to the YUM server.
Once I obtain files, I will host them via Apache on YUM, and run commands such as createrepo etc. Just need the easiest way to get files (or even if its possible?)
Any help/advise appreciated
