So I am having an issue with my own yum repo. Here is the setup:
I have basic auth on apache running on a RHEL 6.2 machine on EC2. It holds the yum repo for both a RHEL 6 machine and a RHEL 5 machine in which I have the RPM's in a seperate folder within.
When I do my yum update on any RHEL 6 machine, it's fine, everything works. BUt when I run it on a RHEL 5.5 machine, I get [Errno 14] HTTP Error 401: Authorization Required. I know for a fact that I can access the machine and the username and password is correct as I can copy and paste what is in the repo file and it works in a web browser no problem.
I suspect there is an issue with a RHEL6x machine serving up a repo for a 5.x machine but can't find the solution. Any help would be much appreciated!
