I need to install some software which is not available pre-compiled on a client's RHEL Server. I decided to create a rpm for easier installation on multiple systems. As i have no RHEL subscription, can i create the rpm locally on CentOS and then install it on the RHEL Systems?


that will work perfectly for "noarch" rpms; but for any other rpm; I would strongly recommend building rpms on the same machine as the one where you will install it. Consider downloading the source rpms and rebuilding the rpms yourself (using rpmbuild --rebuild)
