I'd like to copy my SLES10SP3 and OES2SP2 disks to the system so I don't need to continually insert them for package management. What's the best way to do this?
Honestly? Copy the ISO images to the server. Or better yet, set up an NFS host somewhere, localmount the ISO images, share out the mounted directories, and add those NFS exports as a repo.
Then on your OES/SLES servers...
Or you can just copy the ISO files to each server, and then add the ISO as a Repository from YaST.
I ended up creating a local directory, stored the ISO's there. Went into repository management, chose "local directory" as my type and in the next dialog there is an option to choose an ISO as your source. This made this pretty painless. I've done repo changes before, just didn't know if there was a "SLES" or "Novell" way of doing things that works best. Thanks everyone.
