the product compatibility matrix (either in the product docs or on the bmc support site) should list what is supported on what platform. not sure if ia64 is supported for patching.
But it would be useful to at least have the IA patches so that you can run a patch analysis.
There also seems to be some mismatches with RHEL 5 where it drops back to RHES which doesn't match the yum repo. So being able to add additional channels to match what you have would be really useful.
ia64 is not supported for patching according to this:
which means you cannot run analysis or analysis-based patch deployment.
I'm not sure I understand what you mean about redhat 5. can you describe that more?
When you select RHEL 5 as the channel it returns RHES as the architecture and then doesn't match the yum repository.
match what in the yum repository?
can you paste a screenshot of what you are seeing?
We have a number of yum repositories as most of the servers do not have internet access to directly link to redhat.
We are trying to use these repositories to create a patch catalogue. But the only channels that match our redhat versions RHEL 4.6 / 5.1 / 5.5 and architecture x86 and x86_64 for the filter are looking for specific xml files in the repodata directory. I have tried renaming the *.xml file to match what it is looking for but it is still failing.
Using Filter Channels
Channel: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v.5 for 32-bit x86)
Channel: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v.5 for 64-bit x86_64)
The only other version 5 channel is:
Channel: Red Hat Enterprise Linux(v.5 54-bit IBM System z)
So what I need to do is to be able to match the channel to the yum repository.
Are the payload locations accessible via NSH?
Are the patch catalogs pointed at each repo and have you run the catalog update job?
I believe you can only have 1 filter per catalog for the same version, and mixing the x86_64 and i386 arch filters can also cause problems.
RHEL 4 comes in ES and AS flavors, and those should be in separate catalogs.
