          You can download a valid version of the repository configuration from Oracle Public Yum Server. Keep in mind that the "wget" command shown on the web page does not remove your existing configuration and that the "Latest" channel will include all available errata and patches. Therefore "yum update" will update the system to the current distribution, i.e. OL 5.10. You can also enable only the appropriate "Base" distribution by editing the file, but then you will not get any software updates.


          To see if the Firewall configuration is the culprit, you can temporarily disable it as root:

          [root@vm110 ~]# service iptables [ stop | start ]


          To check, which yum repository channels are available and status:


          [root@vm110 ~]# yum repolist all

          Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security

          This system is not registered with ULN.

          You can use up2date --register to register.

          ULN support will be disabled.

              Are you having trouble resolving the TCP/IP addresses? In this case you should check your DNS configuration. Is it the Firewall, what have you configured? Are you using DHCP? Please provide a better description of your problem and if possible include what you get on screen instead of what you think might be the issue.

                Anyone can provid IP address which i can use insted of public-yum.oracle.com.

                • 5. Re: Oracle linux yum repository .

                  public-yum.oracle.com is not having static IP. It is based on dynamic IP, which contains difference IP addresses each time.
