Our internal repository (CentOS 7 mirror) is working with the exception of the groups. I've had a request to convert some of our cli only boxes to a gui and using yum grouplist on any other client server won't work:

#yum grouplist
...    
Warning: no environments/groups match:

Here is the working directory and output of tree on the local repo:

#pwd

7 directories, 50 files

and comps.xml is non-0 byte file (I mention this because createrepo -g doesn't always "update" the touched comps.xml):

ls -l comps.xml
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 913932 Mar 26 00:00 comps.xml

I've noticed that

createrepo -g comps.xml /path/to/repo

will not work without touching comps.xml first. Do I have comps.xml in the correct place? In other places such as the repodata directory, yum grouplist doesn't work there either. On the client side manual package updates/installs are working.

local repository cron job:

#!/bin/bash

/bin/reposync -l -d -m --download-metadata --newest-only --download_path=/usr/share/nginx/html/repos/ --repoid=base
/bin/reposync -l -d -m --download-metadata --newest-only --download_path=/usr/share/nginx/html/repos/ --repoid=updates
/bin/reposync -l -d -m --download-metadata --newest-only --download_path=/usr/share/nginx/html/repos/ --repoid=extras

createrepo --update /usr/share/nginx/html/repos/

  • What is that supposed to be a mirror of? It does not look like anything is in the correct directory structure for a yum repo. – Michael Hampton Mar 26 '19 at 17:56
  • CentOS 7.x repository. You don't see all the packages because tree is only going down two levels to avoid listing thousands of lines of packages. – Johnny Doe Mar 26 '19 at 18:27
  • That still doesn't look like the directory structure of a CentOS mirror. Compare an actual one for reference. – Michael Hampton Mar 26 '19 at 18:30
  • Some of the directories at the CentOS 7 mirror are probably not necessary for a local mirror such as images, EFI and isolinux. Anyone else have a local mirror running to confirm what Michael's saying about the structure? – Johnny Doe Mar 27 '19 at 12:22
  • Just how did you create this "mirror"? – Michael Hampton Mar 27 '19 at 14:16
