SUSE Manager 3 Hands-on

Hands-on :: SMT Sync 02

Configure SMT in SUMA and synchronize the channels.

SMT Sync 02 - Configuration

Modify /etc/fstab and mount the SMT data disk (/dev/vdc1):

UUID=58de515b-d594-482d-9368-5ecfe5691fbb /data xfs defaults 0 2
# mkdir /data

# mount -a

SMT Sync 02 - Configuration

Configure the local data directory in /etc/rhn/rhn.conf, restart tomcat and synchronize the channels:

[...]
# local data directory
server.susemanager.fromdir = /data/repos_init_20161109
# systemctl restart tomcat

# mgr-sync refresh

# mgr-sync list channels

# mgr-sync add channel $channel-label

SMT Sync 02 - Required Channels

  • sles12-sp1-pool-x86_64

  • sles12-sp1-updates-x86_64

  • sle-manager-tools12-pool-x86_64-sp1

  • sle-manager-tools12-updates-x86_64-sp1

  • suse-manager-proxy-3.0-pool-x86_64

  • suse-manager-proxy-3.0-updates-x86_64

SMT Sync 02 - Verification I

Check the synchronization log fils in /var/log/rhn/reposync/:

# ls -la /var/log/rhn/reposync/
