Default cobbler and multiple rhn repositories



I’m currently testing cobbler and so far it has done
everything ive asked of it flawlessly. There is however one function I need
some help with. Im trying to get it to pull down multiple rhn channels so that I
can deploy/patch both rhel4 and rhel5 from the cobbler server.


The box itself is RHEL 5 so it has no problem mirroring rhn://rhel-i386-server-5
I would also however like to mirror rhn://rhel-i386-es-4 , Whenever I try and
run a reposync with this repo added, I of course get told that the system isn’t
entitled to download the rhel4 content.


Using mrepo’s tools and the instructions at:

http://www.labmonkeys.org/systems_managementatch_management:installing_mre po_on_rhel5

I have managed to get a separate systemid for the box which is allowed to pull
down rhel4 content, and I can successfully create a local mirror of rhel-i386-es-4
in that fashion.


I would however like to add this into my cobbler setup with the minimum
of fuss. I could of course tell cobbler to create a repo from the local files
but that means keeping 2 copies of the rpm’s. Or I could just add the
repository manually in the post of all my kickstart files. But both of these
methods involve a bit more management as I still need to make sure that the
rhel4 mirror is correctly synching – would be nice it it “just


Does anyone know of a way to get cobbler to pull down content from the
rhel4 channel using the alternative systemid? Or of any other ingenious methods
to achieve what I want?
