Mirror CentOS8 repository in CentOS7 Server via reposync

Post by psuresh » 2020/07/02 14:13:37

Hi,

I'm running CentOS7 server as ImageServer and local repository server. And i need to mirror CentOS8 repository ( http://mirror.centos.org/centos-8/8.1.1 ... x86_64/os/ ) in my CentOS7 Server.

If i mirror CentOS8 repository using repo sync command in CentOS7 it did not properly mirror centos8 repository, due to that when i install package from CentOS8 client machine getting following error.

No available modular metadata for modular package 'python3-lldb-8.0.1-1.module_el8.1.0+215+a01033fb.x86_64', it cannot be installed on the system
The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction.
You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
Error: No available modular metadata for modular package

Can you please suggest proper way to mirror CentOS8 repository in CentOS7 Server?

Thanks in advance

Use rsync.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Thanks, With Rsync working fine. Is there any tools available for CentOS7 to support modularity based repository sync so that we can sync repository via http protocol ?
