RHEL 8 mirrors configuration

GA since 16.0.0 TechPreview before 16.0.0


Consider this section as part of the vSphere-based CLI or web UI bootstrap procedure.

By default, the RHEL subscription grants access to the AppStream and BaseOS repositories that are not bound to a specific operating system version and that are stream repositories, so they are frequently updated. To deploy RHEL 8.7 and make sure that packages are installed from the version 8.7 AppStream and BaseOS repositories, the RHEL VM template has the releasever variable for .yum set to 8.7. You can verify this variable in /etc/yum/vars/releasever on a VM.

If you are using the RedHat Satellite server, verify that your activation key is configured with the release version set to 8.7 and includes only the following repositories:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 for x86_64 - BaseOS RPMs 8.7

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 for x86_64 - AppStream RPMs 8.7
