If you can put an RSCD agent on the satellite server and run our 'RedHatRepoManager' against the repositories it should work.
(the VPC requires its own metadata, even though it's more or less the same as the repos metadata.. and they shouldn't conflict)
I've used the VPC w/ 'mrepo' which is a poor-mans satellite server and it worked fine.
Has anyone tried using local hosts file to redirect the URL BBSA's online RHN patch catalog attempts to connect to an internal IP?
e.g. adding a redirect for rhn.redhat.com to the internal IP of a local RH Satellite server.
not that i know of.
Any way to log what the online patch catalog update job performs? Looked in the config and job server logs and nothing in there.
It should be in appserver/jobserver logs
You may need to increase logging
What are you interested in ?
Redireecting RHN url to an internal IP . Whay do you want to do that ?
The CUJ makes use of XML RPC as well as some very good page crawling to get the downloads from RHN.
Do you have exactly the same thing replicated internally ?
