A client has sent me an RHEL 5.1 box for me to do some work on, but it's not registered with Red Hat. This is causing me problems, because it's a minimal installation, and I need some more dev software.My immediate reaction was to install various bits (emacs, and so on) from my Centos 5(.0) DVD.The base RHEL system only had one (disabled) repo entry,so I added a yum DVD repo entry in yum.conf.d.
This looked good to start with, but it doesn't work. Something in RHEL's pirut/yum/rpm/whatever is getting confused, and can't work out what is/isn't installed.
Question - how do you maintain an unregistered RHEL box? Has RH done something to make life difficult? Is my problem simply that I'm using a Centos 5.0 DVD, instead of Centos 5.1? Am I stuck with downloading lots of rpms from the net and doing everything manually? I really don't want to do that.
is possible to edited the default RHEL CD to have it automatically install RHEL based off of a kickstart file that I will store locally on the CD. My plan would be to put a cd in a server and have the OS automatically being installed.
I have 4 partitions in my system, out of which two(sda1, sda2) have windows on them. I have installed RHEL 4 32 - bit on sda3 and after that , installed installed RHEL 64-bit on to a partition sda 5. Now i am unable to boot into RHEL 32-bit. The error i am getting is Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format.
I have RHEL 3 and Win XP Installed in my P.C?I want to uninstall RHEL 3 and install RHEL 9 without affecting XP.how can i do this and also where can i download free RHEL 9 version or any other latest linux distribution for free?
I am trying to download RHEL 5.4 AS version for testing..But under [URL] There is no specific link for AS version or ES version..How can I detect which iso is for AS and which one for ES..? There are separate links for AS and ES version for RHEL 4.x version but why is it not available for RHEL 5.x versions?
I have a database server running RHEL 5.1 32 bit that suffered some catastrophic failures about 6 months ago. We were able to patch it back together and keep it running, but now the manufacturing site it supports is going to shut down for two weeks and I would like to replace it permenantly. Does anyone have any guidance for that sort of thing? I'd like to have the new server up and running before hand, basically changing the hostname/ip and restoring the databases only on conversion day. I've done this in the past with HP UX - Red Hat conversions, but this is my first red hat to red hat move. Any advice or shortcuts?I forgot to add the other wrinkle. The new server will be running 64bit linux.
Environment:RHEL 5.2 and 5.4 AP x86_64, 2 drives (sda, sdb), installing without optional features like clustering and virtualization. I have tried this for a couple of days now and just can't get it to work. My goal is to take the RHEL 5.2 DVD and RHEL 5.4 DVD and install them on separate drives of the same machine. I want the grub menu to give me a choice. I prefer to understand the steps and choices offered me by the install dialog to do this rather than fiddle with grub.conf. If that is not possible, I will write up the bug.
So far, I just get the the error 13 when trying to start the grub added second OS. I have read elsewhere that "Anaconda frequently recognizes the other operating system and sets up grub so you can boot from either operating system". That would be nice. The install dialog lets me choose a drive to install to. I have figured out that I need to check "review and modify partitioning layout" to enter the advanced grub choices. Do I have it install a boot loader for the 1st OS? Trying to add the 1st OS during the second OS install creates a grub conf with no kernel line in the added boot stanza.
what is the diffrence between RHEL and Centos. diffrences between support,packges, Xwindow, organization funda, someone say redhat is launch Centos like fedora. but when fedora for beta, RHEL for tested with formal support so why redhat launch this Centos.i get some information from net but not sufficiant for me..
We are slowly migrating from a predominantly Windows house to a 50/50 Win/RHEL operation and even further in the future.Currently, we have a LOT of Windows folders that are created by custom applications which, upon creation of a new folder set, applies the corresponding ACL so that only the associated groups are able to access the folders. Now for the problem, we are migrating the applications to a RHEL55 environment and it is creating the folders on that system now but the groups are still residing in the Windows AD. Is there an "easy" (I know, a very relative term) to have the Windows groups given permission to the Linux shares without very much manual intervention?
I have a software program that when you try to install it on Centos it returns "This programs requires RHEL 4" Is there a work around to get the software to use the Centos software the same as it would RHEL 4?
I have been trying all day but so far I am unable to configure yum to use a proxy server to retrieve updates.Due a recent compliance mandate direct internet access had to be removed for a pool of our Cent/RHEL servers. I have added the http_proxy environment variable in /etc/profile using:
I am using the FQDN of the proxy server, and i can ping that FQDN from the CLI without a problem. When I do this and I reboot the server I can get to the internet through the proxy using links/lynx. Yum however stalls out after loading plugins. I have read in a few places that I need a trailing / after the port number above, adding this and rebooting has no effect.
So I tried specifying the yum.conf file... [URL]. When I do this yum still tries to contact the redhat/cent network directly. No behavior change. If I use tcpdump I can see the server I am running yum on try to directly connect without the proxy, which times out for good reason.
The proxy server I am running is squid, but I can see the server I am running yum on blatantly ignore any proxy settings I have tried so far. I am really in a hole on this one as I have to get several updates to fix vulnerabilities found during our last scan.
I have a very unusual [and most likely unsupported] upgrade path I need to take.
I have two servers, both Dell PE1800's that I need to upgrade.
One of them is a Fedora Core 4 (x86) box and the second is RHEL5 x86_64.
I need to do an in-place upgrade to CentOS 5.3 without having to reinstall from scratch and keeping my downtime to an absolute minimum. Each of these servers has about 10TB of data stored and I really don't want to have to reformat and restore from backps.
I wanted to access a SAN partion from my two CentOS 5 servers.
1. i wanted to get mounted the partition which i have created in the SAN.for example /dev/sdb is the partition 2. at the same time i wanted to store (Read and write )data in the SAN partition from those two CentOS server. 3. Can we use GFS? or what is the best way?
I am currently setting up a Mono environment (mono, monodevelop, gtk#, etc.) in order to experiment with C# programming. Ideally I would like to use the latest version of mono, 2.10; however, F14 repos only carry 2.6.x . Compiling and installing 2.10 from tarballs is causing me dependency troubles which I'm not willing to dedicate much time to. In the meantime, I came across this Novell-hosted rpm repo, which is supposed to be used by RHEL/CentOS users:[URL]. Is it possible to somehow add said repository as an installation source via yum/rpm, or the differences between Fedora and RHEL repositories goes beyond aesthetic differences?
So as the title says, I am looking for your experiences in this issue, because CentOs and RHEL are very, VERY similar, it is basically the same, so I was wondering, if I can get official support from Autodesk if I'll use their software on CentOs instead on RHEL.
