Setting up DLM Packages in local repository

Follow these steps to set up the DLM packages in the local repository.

  1. Copy the repository tarball for the DLM instance to the web server directory and expand (uncompress) the archive file:
    1. Navigate to the web server directory you previously created.
      cd /var/www/html/
      All content in this directory is served by the web server.
    2. Move the following tarballs to the current directory and expand the tarballs - DLM-x.X.X.X-XX-<OSplatform>-rpm.tar.gz
      Replace <filename> with the actual name of the RPM tarball that you are expanding.
      tar zxvf <file-name>.tar.gz
      During expansion of the tarball, subdirectories are created in /var/www/html/, such as DLM/centos7. These directories contain the repositories.

      Expanding the tarball might take several seconds.

  2. Confirm that you can browse to the newly created local repository by using the Base URL:
    http://<your_webserver>:port/<repo_name>/<OS>/<version> 
    • <your_webserver>:port

      This is the FQDN and port of the web server host.

    • <repo_name>

      The repository name of the DLM.

    • <OS>

      The operating system, which is centos6 or centos7.

    • <version>

      The version number of the downloaded component.

    Base URL example for DLM Engine:
    http://<your_webserver>:port/DLM/centos7/1.1.1.0
    Base URL example for DLM Service:
    http://<your_webserver>:port/DLM-App/centos7/1.1.0.0
    Remember this Base URL. You need it to set up the repository configuration file in subsequent steps.
  3. If you have multiple repositories configured in your environment, deploy the following plugin on all the nodes in your cluster.
    yum install yum-plugin-priorities
  4. Edit the /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf file to add the following values:
    [main]
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=0

The local repository is now set up and ready for use.

Create the configuration file for the newly created local repository.
