Copying IPS Package Repositories

This chapter describes two ways to create a copy of the Oracle Solaris IPS package repository: You can use repository files from media or from an Oracle Solaris download site, or you can retrieve the repository content from the Internet manually or automatically. In all cases, first create a separate ZFS file system in a shared location for your local package repository. After the repository is created, verify and snapshot the repository.

This chapter also provides performance and troubleshooting information related to copying repositories.
