Deleting custom RPMs from Web UI doesn't remove them from

Latest response

I removed old RPMs from my custom repositories in Satellite 6.2 from Web UI, however, when I go to those repos from terminal, I can still see old RPMs which i removed earlier. Do I need to do anything here? It's consuming lot of space.

When you remove a repository (or remove RPMs from a custom repository), they are not immediately purged from disk. Satellite has a cron job see /etc/cron.d/katello which removes orphaned content (content not associated with a repository) weekly. You can invoke this job manually if needed.
