I have 2 new redhat hosts (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.9). Lets call them A and B. They both run on 2 different networks.
I try to run the 'yum -update' command on both hosts. Works on A, and updates packages.
Fails on B. Looks like the command times out in its attempt to reach the server that holds the pkgs/info.
[root@den-mon1 log]# yum -v update Loading "rhnplugin" plugin Loading "security" plugin Config time: 0.084
I have not modified the /etc/yum.conf file on A or B. In /etc/yum.repos.d , i see one file - rhel-debuginfo.repo Its contents -
[rhel-debuginfo] name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch - Debug baseurl=ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/enterprise/$releasever/en/os/$basearch/Debuginfo/ enabled=0 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release
Question - Where is the default conf for Yum, and which default server does it try to reach out to to obtain pkg info?
