Serving Multiple Repositories Using Multiple Depot Server Instances

This section shows how to extend the information provided in Retrieving Packages Using an HTTP Interface to support serving multiple repositories using multiple pkg.depotd daemons running on different ports on the same repository server.

In this example, the dev_repo repository exists in addition to the repoSolaris11 repository. The repoSolaris11 repository is accessible from http://localhost/ using port 80.

Make sure the publisher prefix is set on the dev_repo repository:

$ pkgrepo set -s /export/dev_repo publisher/prefix=dev

Add a new instance of the pkg/server service:

$ svccfg -s pkg/server add dev
$ svccfg -s pkg/server:dev setprop pkg/port=81
$ svccfg -s pkg/server:dev setprop pkg/inst_root=/export/dev_repo

Check that you have added the new instance:

$ svccfg -s pkg/server list

Start the new service:

$ svcadm refresh application/pkg/server:dev
$ svcadm enable application/pkg/server:dev

Browse the repository at http://localhost:81/.

See Multiple Repositories Under One Domain for information about running multiple repositories under one domain name with different prefixes.
