We are planning to wipe our RHEL 5 HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 server and put CentOS 6.4 on it. However, there are two major issues that may make the install different than normal:
- The server is in another state, I am going to have to use iLO virtual media as the installation DVD
- The server is totally blocked from the internet, I have VPN access into their network but that is the only way it can access the internet, is via any files I upload to it.
What concerns can I expect that would deviate from a normal wipe-and-install? For example, how can I use yum for updates and such when the server can't get on the internet?
