vzrhnproxy help

The vzrhnproxy utility can be installed with the rpm -i command on any 'RHEL 4'-based server (e.g. RHEL 4 and RHEL 5, Fedora 7 and 8, or CentOS 4 and 5). To start using vzrhnproxy for creating an RHN Proxy Server, you should specify valid credentials in the /etc/vz/rhnproxy/rhn.conf file to log in to RHN and run the vzrhnproxy register command on the server where you wish to create the RHN Proxy Server. This command will:

  1. Connect to Red Hat Network with the credentials specified on the previous step.
  2. Register in RHN and create a system profile for the server with:

The vzrhnproxy list command displays a list of all system profiles you have registered with Red Hat Network.

The vzrhnproxy update command updates the repodata in the pseudo-repository on the Proxy Server for the specified system profile (profile_name); you can specify more than one system profile whose repodata are to be updated.
