Problems migrating RHEL 6 clients to Sat 6

If you receive a “Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: realmlinux-server6-x86_64” error, try these steps:

  1. Create /etc/yum.repos.d/migrate.repo with the following contents:
    [migrate]
    name=RedHat Migration Packages for $releasever
    baseurl=http://install.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/yum/OIT/migrate/6/
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=0
    
  2. Enable the migrate repo. Answer “y” to any questions from yum.
    # yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=migrate update
    # yum clean all
    # yum update
    
  3. If yum is successfull, remove the migrate repo.
    # rm /etc/yum.repos.d/migrate.repo
    # yum clean all
    

Now that yum is working properly, you should be able to migrate the host to Satellite 6.
