Configure IPS Repository on Oracle Solaris 11.2

Its been some time now Oracle released new version of Solaris "Oracle Solaris 11.2".  There are litlle changes in the configuration of repository on Solaris 11.2 compare to Solaris 11.1.

In this article i will demonstrate configuration of  Local IPS repository on Oracle Solaris 11.2


1) Download files required for building a repository:

- Download all files

2)  Create ISO image for all downloaded files. 

- We can use "winscp" or virtualbox "share folder" option as well to move these files to the server.

3) Copy files into a single directory  from the media:

- All files has been copied in /sw_home/sol11_2_images directory

4)  Execute script "install-repo.ksh" for building repository

This "install-repo.ksh" script is introduced in solaris 11.2 whereas in solaris 11.1 we need to manually concatenate both image files.

- Execute the script from directory where all files are located.

 - d is destination directory where repository will be created
 - I will create an ISO image
 - v will verify

5) Configure the repository:

By default repository is configured to We will change this location to a directory where repo is build.

The repository is configured and packages are now available to install from the repo.

Thanks for reading.
