Hi all,

The result of my support ticket is a bit mixed; there is good news and bad news.

The bad news is, that the position of Dell is that linux.dell.com<http://linux.dell.com> is not officially supported. 😭

The good news is, that you can point dsu to downloads.dell.com<http://downloads.dell.com> instead! Example:

dsu --apply-upgrades --non-interactive --import-public-key --source-location=https://downloads.dell.com/catalog/ --source-type=repository

I ran it a few times and compared it to the normal command (dsu --apply-upgrades --non-interactive --import-public-key) and it seems to be a few seconds faster (when there is nothing to update).

Then there is still the problem that if you’ve added linux.dell.com<http://linux.dell.com> as a yum repo, and it is down, your yum update command will fail. Unless of course you exclude the repo with ‘--disablerepo’. But that unfortunately requires manual intervention. To work around this, we have set up our local mirror, as Klaus suggested. https://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/omsa.html#Creating_a_local_mirror

Cheers,
Onno

I got problems (timeouts) too on linux.dell.com<http://linux.dell.com>. I’ve submitted service request 1082289613 for it.

Kind regards,

Same for me, and my office is less than 20 miles from Dell HQ. First time I've needed updates in a long time and the repo is down. Good stuff.

Dear Dell,

Please can you go into whatever dusty cupboard the PowerEdge 1400SC you have hosting linux.dell.com<http://linux.dell.com> is languishing in and give it a kick?

With thanks,

Ben
