Manages Yum Repository files in /etc/yum.repos.d on CentOS / RHEL 5.x.
Yum repositories included in this recipe: EPEL, ELFF, Dell OMSA, Dell Community, Dell Firmware, VMware Tools, and more...
This cookbook requires RHEL or CentOS 5.x, and newer. It has not been tested on other platforms. It probably will not work with RHEL 4 or CentOS 4, especially if you have not taken action to manually install yum on that platform.
RHEL 6 support is fairly well tested in the dell, vmware-tools, and epel recipes. Let me know if you find a platform 6 bug, related to any one of the recipes.
The yumrepo::dell recipe requires Dell manufactured hardware. This recipe should automatically disable itself if non-Dell hardware is detected by Ohai
A major breaking change in this cookbook is the introduction of an
upgrade recipe for vmware-tools. Since VMWare does not support
upgrades on their packaged vmware-tools, I created a
vmware-tools-upgrade recipe to migrate from vmware-tools 4.1 to 5.x.
You should ensure the yumrepo recipes are not in a base role, until all your nodes have been migrated to 5.x.
