Redhat Enterprise Linux 6.2 Evaluation Copy - Clustering Software packages

Latest response

I am new in Redhat.

I have downloaded & installed & registered Redhat Ent Linux 6.2 eval copy.

I am trying to install redhat clustering software packages like cman,luci etc via the yum install command, but seems like it is not available (see messages below).

 

[root@localhost benny]# yum install cman
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin, security,

No package cman available.

Where could I download or get the eval copy of redhat clustering software packages??

 

Thanks & regards,

Benny

It has been changed in RHEL 6. They introduced different repository for special packages like cluster packages. you need to chage like below, just add according to you system

 

[cluster]
name=Test
baseurl=file:///mnt/HighAvailability/  --> Change it according to your system
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
 

 

rhds,

Thanks Shyfur for the reply.

Where should I put what you have said in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory?

Is it in :packagekit-media.repo  redhat.repo  rhel-source.repo ??

Hi Shyfur & others,

Additional to my previous reply, I have created 'cluster.repo' file in /etc/yum.repos.d, with the following content:

[cluster]
name=Test
baseurl=file:///tmp/HighAvailability/.
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

 

Note: I copy from the Evaluation DVD which contain the 'HighAvailability' Directory to the /tmp, so that I could use the /tmp/HighAvailability path in cluster.repo

 

Then run this command: yum install cman

It looks ok with messages pre-requisite packages installed, but at the end still end up with the following error:

Any idea?.

 

Thanks,

Dear benny,

 

you put a "." at the end of (baseurl=file:///tmp/HighAvailability/.) in your reply, why this "." ?

 

well you could try this way,

 

Remove everthing from /etc/yum.repos.d/

 

# rm -rvf /etc/yum.repos.d/*

 

Now follow the steps.

 

# vim /etc/yum.repos.d/server.repo

 

[server]
name=Test
baseurl=file:///mnt/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

[cluster]
name=Test
baseurl=file:///mnt/HighAvailability/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

 

*** Please mount the cd/dvd into /mnt

 

# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt

 

*** Please check whether HighAvailability directory /mnt or not.

 

rgds,

Shyfur

Thanks Shyfur , finally it works !!.

All I did was as you suggested, I created the HA repo in the /etc/yum.repos.d pointing to the cdrom, plus the internet connection. Then use yum install comand to install the high availability package.

Thanks a lot for the help.

regards,

Benny
