Need to setup 5.10 Network Install / Kickstart Server

Post by vitomacdoc » 2014/10/27 19:34:46

Need to setup 5.10 Network Install / Kickstart Server.

I built a dozen machines using 5.10 and need to build more. Because of development compatibilities, I would like to stay with 5.10, or at least start at 5.10 and update only security patches.

I can follow the instructions on Centos site on building a network install server, but all the mirrors sites are up to 5.11. I cannot rsync to vaults.centos.org.

What is the best method to start with 5.10 and rsync to current mirrors for patches? Should I start by copying all the files from the 5.10 DVD into a folder and rync?

Thank you.

Since CentOS 5 is now in production phase 3 according to upstream, almost all updates to it are security updates...
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
