Issue

A Red Hat Enterprise Linux server which is not connected to the Internet, needs to be updated, and has no access to a RHN Satellite or Proxy server.

Resolution

There is a server which is offline and doesn't have any connection to the Internet.

Then we need station (or laptop / virtual machine), which has the same major Red Hat Enterprise Linux version as server and is connected to the Red Hat Network/Proxy/Satellite.

  • Copy the /var/lib/rpm to the station connected to the Internet (you can use USB/CD…)

    scp -r /var/lib/rpm root@station:/tmp/
    
  • Install the download only plugin for yum and createrepo on the machine which is connected to the Internet (Red Hat Network):

    yum install yum-downloadonly createrepo
    yum clean all
    
  • Backup the original rpm directory on the station and replace it with the rpm directory from the "offline" server:

    mv -v /var/lib/rpm /var/lib/rpm.orig
    mv -v /tmp/rpm /var/lib/
    
  • Download updates to /tmp/rpm_updates and return back the /var/lib/rpm

    mkdir -v /tmp/rpm_updates
    yum update --downloadonly --downloaddir /tmp/rpm_updates
    createrepo /tmp/rpm_updates
    rm -rvf /var/lib/rpm
    mv -v /var/lib/rpm.orig /var/lib/rpm
    
  • Transfer the downloaded rpms to the server and update:

    scp -r /tmp/rpm_updates root@server:/tmp/
    ssh root@server
    
    cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel-offline-updates.repo << \EOF
    [rhel-offline-updates]
    name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch - Offline Updates Repository
    baseurl=file:///tmp/rpm_updates
    enabled=1
    EOF
    
    yum upgrade
    

…and the server is updated.

These updates are the same as if "yum update" had been executed on a station that had a connection to the Internet.
