To help us in software management using yast on SLES (Suse Linux Enterprise Server) 10 we can make a local repository in the form of iso image of the DVD SLES10. The following are the steps to create a local repository :
  1. Create ISO file from SLES10 DVD
  2. Copy ISO file to your server
  3. Add the ISO as a service (installation source) using command below :
    zypper sa "iso:/?iso=/home/choirul/iso/sles10sp1.iso" "SLES 10 SP1"
  4. Verify that the service has been successfully added using this command :
    zypper sl
