Have you activated Red Hat Network on this new host? If not, have you configured a Yum repo for the installation CDs? You will need to do one of these two things to deploy packages without using RPM by hand.

Hi Sathish,


I'm not quite sure what the "Dell utility" is (you'll have to go through Dell directly for support for this) but you might want to take a look at the official Installation Guide for RHEL 5:


This link is to English, but there are other languages available.


Hope this helps!



Red Hat, Inc.


You will create a base repository and will be able to use Yum to install packages dealing with dependencies.


Hope this helps!
