How To Manage ULN Channels Through Command-line Utility on Oracle Linux 6 (Doc ID 1674425.1)

Last updated on MAY 22, 2014

Applies to:

Linux x86

Goal

Previously, to add or remove channels to a server already registered in ULN, you had to log into ULN and manually do this. First a server had to be tagged as a yum server and then tick any channels that would be included. While this does involve logging into the website, and manually following a few steps and it could not be automated.

Oracle now providing an updated rhn-setup RPM that adds a new tool called uln-channel which allows users with ULN access to enable a server as a yum server and also add/remove/list channels for this server. This will allow for easy automation.
