StarlingX/Developer Guide/Regional Mirror
Regional mirror will give us a Reference Mirror that can use to avoid downloading all packages from the Internet
Our Regional Office needs to create a Reference Mirror which will perform a regular (daily?) automated download using existing methods. The high level overview of activities to perform in the server hosting the Reference Mirror are:
- Manage user access through user authentication, e.g. SSH key.
- Create the base mirror directory. e.g. using existing stx-tools scripts.
- Create automated updates based on new packages from mirror download process.
- Enable your preferred protocol for user to transfer and synchronize with the Reference Mirror e.g. rsync.
1. Authenticate to the reference mirror server, e.g. upload your SSH key.
2. Go to your local path to host your local mirror directory:
user@workstation:~/starlingx/mirror$ ls CentOS/ stx-r1 tis-installer user@workstation:~/starlingx/mirror$ cd CentOS/stx-r1/CentOS/pike/ user@workstation:~/starlingx/mirror/CentOS/stx-r1/CentOS/pike$ ls Binary downloads Source
3. Synchronize your local mirror with the reference mirror e.g. rsync:
user@workstation:~/starlingx/mirror/CentOS/stx-r1/CentOS/pike$ rsync -e "ssh -i /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null" -avF firstname.lastname@example.org:/mirror/mirror/ .
Once completed the directory structure should look like:
user@workstation:~/starlingx/mirror/regional/pike$ tree -L 1 . . ├── Binary ├── downloads └── Source 3 directories
