The mkrepo.sh script has to be executed from the <Linux|Ubuntu>/<Architecture> folder.

Usage: ./mkrepo.sh [-u server -n <destination>] | [-u client -n <repourl>]

  • [-u server -n <destination>]
    • -u server: Script will set up the TTU YUM/apt-get repository on the local Server
    • -n <destination>: Denotes the absolute path of the destination folder to copy the TTU packages

    This destination must be the root folder of the web server or it should have symbolic link created to the root folder.

    Example Web server: Apache

  • [-u client -n <repourl>]
    • -u client: Script will add existing TTU repository to YUM/apt-get configuration
    • -n <repourl> denotes weburl from which YUM/apt-get can download the TTU packages

      Here, the assumption is that the TTU repository is available for download on the web server.

      Example repourl: http://server-address/

  • If no input is given, the script assumes that the TTU Bundle is copied and extracted to the local machine. So, the script adds the local TTU repository to the YUM/apt-get configuration.

The script will prompt to copy the repository file to the system-specific repository location:
  • For CentOS and RedHat - /etc/yum.repos.d
  • For SLES and OEL - /etc/zypp/repos.d
  • For Ubuntu - an entry will be appended to /etc/apt/sources.list
