I have a CentOS7 server running Spacewalk 2.6

This server manages multiple other centOS servers on a closed loop network. These are not allowed to touch the internet.

To add packages to the Spacewalk server, I must download to a USB HDD and move them over manually.

My question is, how do I create a repo under a channel that points to local storage (since I don't have a Repository URL) and is there a default location on the file system that packages should be placed / stored?

  • Simply adding a file:// URL doesn't work? – HBruijn Apr 19 '17 at 21:48
  • Ah that's it. that works. – KenPC Apr 20 '17 at 13:58
  1. Make local package directory as a Local Repo : Use createrepo command
  2. install FTP/HTTP to create a link which can be pointing from spacewalk Channel Repo.
