After Updating to CloudForms 4.6.2 External Yum Repositories Were Added

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • After the update of the CloudForms appliance, moving from 4.6.0 to 4.6.2, during the post-scripts execution, several repositories are added to /etc/yum.repos.d/ :
[root@cf46 ~]# ls /etc/yum.repos.d/ -l
total 412
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root    211 May 18 11:06 ansible-el7.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root    222 May 18 11:06 ansible-tower.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root    640 May 18 11:06 epel-7.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root    327 May 18 11:06 jlaska-rabbitmq.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root    440 May 18 11:06 pgdg-96-centos.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 400851 May 18 10:39 redhat.repo
  • The appliance is now pointing to external repositories. A new 'yum update' would install unsupported versions of the software:
# yum check-update
