Add the TTU repository that can be accessible via an URL to YUM configuration

  1. Copy the mkrepo.sh file from the Bundle (available on the server) that has to be installed to the client.
  2. Make sure the TTU YUM repository is available for download on web server.
  3. Run mkrepo.sh script as below: sh mkrepo.sh –u client -n <repourl>
    • -u client: Script will add the existing TTU repository to the local YUM configuration.
    • -n denotes the weburl from which YUM can download the TTU packages. Here, the assumption is that the TTU repository is available for download on the web server.
    • Example <repourl>: HYPERLINK "http://server-address/%3cTTU-Version" http://server-address/<TTU-Version> /Linux/<Arch>/<Mediatype>

    Ex: sh mkrepo.sh –u client –n http://server-address/16.00.00.00/Linux/i386-x8664/BASE

    Adding http://sdlc8682.labs.teradata.com/16.00.00.00/Linux/i386-x8664/BASE/ to YUM configuration
                   Use the following Yum repository file:
    
                   Filename: /etc/yum.repos.d/ttu-foundation-1600.repo
                   -----------------------------------------------------------------
                  [ttu-foundation-1600]
                  name=TTU Foundation 1600 i386-x8664
                  baseurl=http://sdlc8682.labs.teradata.com/16.00.00.00/Linux/i386-x8664/BASE/
                  enabled=1
                  gpgcheck=0
                  -----------------------------------------------------------------
              Copy /tmp/ttu-foundation-1600.repo to /etc/yum.repos.d? [y/n]: y
  4. Provide “y” as input so that TTU repo will be added to YUM configuration.
    Here:
    • <TTU-Version> is the version of the TTU. Ex: 16.00.00.00
    • <Arch> is the TTU bundle-supported architectures. Ex: i386-x8664, s390x.
    • <Mediatype> is the type of the TTU media. Ex: BASE, TSME.
