Retrieving Packages Using a File Interface

This section describes how to serve the local repository packages from a directory on your local network.

Configure an NFS Share

To enable clients to access the local repository via NFS, set the sharenfs property to create and publish the share.

$ pfexec zfs create -o mountpoint=/export/repoSolaris11 rpool/repoSolaris11
$ pfexec zfs set share=name=s11repo,path=/export/repoSolaris11,prot=nfs rpool/repoSolaris11
$ pfexec zfs set sharenfs=on rpool/repoSolaris11

Use one of the following tests to confirm that the share is published:

Set the Publisher Origin to the File Repository URI

To enable client systems to get packages from your local file repository, set the origin for the publisher. Use the following command to check the name of the publisher of the packages in your new repository:

$ pkgrepo info -s /export/repoSolaris11
solaris   4400     online           2012-07-25T23:40:03.496688Z

Execute the following command on each client to reset the origin for the solaris publisher:

$ pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -M '*' -g /net/host1/export/repoSolaris11/ solaris
-G '*'

Removes all existing origins for the solaris publisher.

-M '*'

Removes all existing mirrors for the solaris publisher.


Adds the URI of the newly-created local repository as the new origin for the solaris publisher.
