6.3.2. Moving Exported Data

The following procedure copies the Red Hat Satellite Exporter data onto the local system for import.

Procedure 6.3. Moving Exporter Content

  1. Log into the machine as root.
  2. Create a target directory for the files, such as:
    # mkdir /var/rhn-sat-import/
    
  3. Make the export data available on the local machine in the directory created in the previous step. Either copy the data directly, or mount the data from another machine using NFS. Copy the data into the new directory with the following command:
    # scp -r root@storage.example.com:/var/rhn-sat-export/* /var/rhn-sat-import
    
Now that the data is available, proceed with performing the import.
