Set up the TTU repository that can be accessible via a URL.

  1. Make sure the bundle is copied to target machine.
  2. Make sure the web server is up and running on the target machine. Example web server: Apache
  3. Log in to the target machine and change directory to the repository location available inside Bundle. cd <Bundle-Location>/<Linux|Ubuntu>/<Arch>
    Here:
    • <Bundle-Location> is the absolute location of the Bundle.
    • <Linux|Ubuntu>: Use Ubuntu on a Ubuntu system or Linux for all other Linux flavors.
    • <Arch> is the TTU bundle-supported architectures, for example, i386-x8664, s390x.
  4. Run the mkrepo.sh script as below: sh mkrepo.sh –u server –n <destination>
    • -u server: Script will set up the TTU YUM repository on the local Server.
    • -n 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 a symbolic link created to the root folder.

    Example: sh mkrepo.sh –u server –n /var/www/html

    Successfully copied rpms from <Bundle-Location>/Linux/i386-x8664 to destination:/var/www/html/<TTU-Version>/Linux/<Arch>/<Mediatype>
    Please refresh your web server URL to check if rpms are available for download. Example url: http://server-address/
    Example RPM location: HYPERLINK "http://server-address/%3cTTU-Version%3e/Linux/%3cArch%3e/%3cmediatype" http://server-address/<TTU-Version>/Linux/<Arch>/<mediatype>
    
    Here:
    • <Bundle-Location> is the absolute path of the Bundle.
    • <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.
