- Complete the installation of SMT.
- Enable the catalogs to be mirrored with SMT – e.g. :
smt-catalogs -e SLES10-SP2-Online sles-10-i586
smt-catalogs -e SLES10-SP2-Updates sles-10-i586
- Perform a dry-run of smt-mirror to get the repo directories
smt-mirror -d --dryrun -L /var/log/smt-mirror.log
This will - using the two catalogs above and if using the default MirrorTo - create:
- Now you can copy over the repositories from your YUP repository to the SMT repository
- e.g. :
cp -va /SLE10_YUP/SLES10-SP2-Online/* \ /srv/www/htdocs/repo/\$RCE/SLES10-SP2-Online/
cp -va /SLE10_YUP/SLES10-SP2-Updates/* \ /srv/www/htdocs/repo/\$RCE/SLES10-SP2-Updates/
- Perform a normal run of "smt-mirror" in order to get the repodata fixed up:
smt-mirror -d -L /var/log/smt-mirror.log
This will show errors like
“repomd.xml is the same, but repo is not valid. Start mirroring.”
Please note, that some of the RPMs that have been mirrored with YUP may get overwritten, but reusing previously downloaded catalogs will saves quite some time during the initial mirroring anyway.
