Appendix A. RHEL 8 repositories

Before the upgrade, ensure you have appropriate repositories enabled as described in step 4 of the procedure in Preparing a RHEL 8 system for the upgrade.

If you plan to use Red Hat Subscription Manager during the upgrade, you must enable the following repositories before the upgrade by using the subscription-manager repos --enable repository_id command:

Note

If you have enabled a RHEL 8 Code Ready Linux Builder or a RHEL 8 Supplementary repository before an in-place upgrade, Leapp enables the RHEL 8 CodeReady Linux Builder or the RHEL 8 Supplementary repositories, respectively. For more information, see the Package manifest.

If you decide to use custom repositories, enable them per instructions in Configuring custom repositories.
