Copying IPS Package Repositories

This chapter describes two ways to create a copy of an Oracle Solaris IPS package repository:

  • Use repository files from media or from an Oracle Solaris download site.

  • 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 the following information:

  • Performance and troubleshooting information related to copying repositories.

  • A description of the content available from different repository sources.
