6.2.2. Using the RHN Push application


It is recommended to create at least one private channel to receive custom packages prior to upload, since a channel is required for systems to obtain the packages.
The following command uploads package headers to the RHN Satellite Server and copies the packages to the RHN Satellite Server package repository:
rhnpush -c label_of_private_channelpkg-list
The RHN Push configuration file settings can be overridden by specifying options and values on the command line:
rhnpush -c label_of_private_channel --server=localhost pkg-list
The label_of_private_channel is the custom channel created to receive these packages. Be sure to use the precise channel label specified during its creation. If one or more channels are specified (using -c or --channel), the uploaded package headers are linked to all the channels identified. If there is no channel specified, the packages are deposited in the No Channels section of the Package Management page. Refer to Section 4.6, “Assigning Packages to Software Channels” for instructions on reassigning packages.
The --server option specifies the server to which the packages are installed, and is required. RHN Push can be installed on external systems, but running RHN Push locally on the RHN Satellite Server is recommended.
The pkg-list reference represents the list of packages to be uploaded. Alternatively, use the -d option to specify the local directory that contains the packages to be added to the channel. RHN Push can also read the list of packages from standard input (using --stdin).
