Note: This is an RHCSA 7 exam objective and an RHCE 7 exam objective.

Presentation

This topic is so broad that it is necessary to divide it into several parts:

Additional Resources

Don’t forget to check these yum guides.
You can also download the Red Hat Yum command cheat sheet.
Sander van Vugt provides an interesting video about installing and updating software packages (7min/2016).
Additionally, you can watch Red Hat videos about Resolving Dependencies Issues (9min/2016) or How do I manage software in RHEL? (13min/2017).

Although not in the RHCSA and RHCE curriculums, you should become familiar with the deltarpms.
Also, you can read this mail to better understand rpmnew and rpmsave files.
Finally, if you plan to create new RPM packages (still not part of RHCSA/RHCE curriculums), you need to read the RPM Packaging Guide.

Hi Admin
In RHEL7 exam do we have to create a yum repository. If yes at least what configuration is required to make yum install the packages.

Hi CertDepot,

Can you please help on the below:

1-When creating a repositories (local or remote), there is a gpgkey configuration, is this included in the RHCSA objective?

2-What is the normal in the exam, to configure a remote repo or local?

3-Is the below configuration correct when creating a local repository :

# mkdir -p /repos/local
# mount -o loop rhel-server.iso /repos/local
# cd /etc/yum.repos.d
# vim home.repo
[home]
name=linux
baseurl=file:///repos/local
enabled=1
gpgchchek=0
:wq!
# yum clean all
# yum repolist
# yum list all

4-If they asked to install suitable kernel from http://a.abc.com/kernel , what should the full answer be?

Thanks in advance!
