Like many here, I has run into the common package/repository issues with
the Dell provided OMSA repository. We are running a local spacewalk
clone, but this also happens with the direct external repo (installed
via the bootstrap script).
As you all have seen already, here is a small snipped of the result:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: dell_ie_backplane-1.0.0-4.135.2.el6.x86_64
Error: Package: dell_ie_pcissd-1.0.0-4.130.3.el6.x86_64
Based on posts like this one:
there are workarounds for existing RHEL6 systems for the common
repository issues when upgrading from OMSA 7.4 to 8.0/8.1.
All of the solutions that I have seen so far, or that ProSupport Plus
was able to help me with, assume that you already have a full install of
the existing OMSA 7.4 packages before you start.
I recently ran a from scratch build, from a kickstart, that builds a
fresh RHEL 6.6 installation. In this case, all of the proposed
solutions fail, for one very important reason: there is no
srvadmin-hapi-7.4.0 package to rely on while the rest are upgraded. The
current repository does not have that (or other dependent packages) to
allow us to install both the srvadmin-all and the dell_ft_install
packages on the same server. As a matter of fact, the dell_ft_install
packages won't install at all; only srvadmin.
Thank you all for your help. I have made a case with ProSupport Plus
about this issue. Case No. 911641363.
