In some versions of the NTA1000 platform, the CentOS software repositories were disabled to prevent system updates from causing unintended conflicts with CDRouter’s settings or operation. These software repositories are used by the “yum” software management utility to automatically download and install software updates from a set of pre-configured repositories on the Internet. However, the chances of such conflicts occurring are remote, and the benefits of avoiding this risk are outweighed by the need to install periodic system updates to keep the NTA1000 current.
"yum repolist" command to determine if the CentOS software repositories of your NTA1000-v2 system are currently disabled:
[qacafe@nta1000 ~]$ yum repolist Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security Determining fastest mirrors repo id repo name status qacafe QA Cafe repo 3 repolist: 3
You may re-enable the CentOS software repositories by moving the yum repository configuration files back to their standard location.
$ sudo mv /etc/yum.repos.d.offline/* /etc/yum.repos.d
After this command is complete, you must restart your NTA1000 to ensure that the YUM cache is rebuilt.
Note that the
/etc/yum.repos.d/qacafe.repo file contains the QA
Cafe software repository information. This file must not be removed
or altered. Cafe’s Support Team may advise you to perform a specific
update that utilizes this repository.
