Home No-Network needed OpenSolaris Live-CD IPS REPO full mirror

One time my child was sick I need to work from home for longer time, unfortunately I was in this time assigned to project required a IPS repository access. My network a home is not enough stable to use IPS remote mirror, so I as workaround use this script to create:

Home No-Network needed OpenSolaris Live-CD IPS REPO full mirror

I think you can find this approach and script helpful in home Virtual Appliances prototyping.


I customize direct mirror script , see IPS repo mirror script (attached) by Andrzej Szeszo , local copy ips-mirror.sh

There can be also used pkgrecv/pkgsend approach, but this will for no not perverse time stamps, so will not be able to get SAME FMRIs. See for example Building a custom OpenSolaris LiveCD (attached) in Kohsuke Kawaguchi blog

Update: This issue with new timestamps was reported as 6356 PKGsend mut allow to specify FMRI (timestamp) so we can clone package and is fixed in iPKG relesed as part of DEV builds for OpenSolaris 200102 release.

1. Use OS1108-repo.sh script to get needed 555+1 OpenSolaris 200811 IPS packages.

- Create a ZFS poo for IPS data
zfs create rpool/export/ips

- Run the OS1108-repo.sh script

2. Check size for downloaded repo

df -h

Start local IPS repo on port 80 with SMF service

ls /export/ips/opensolaris200811
  file  pkg

svccfg -s application/pkg/server setprop pkg/port=80
svccfg -s application/pkg/server setprop pkg/inst_root=opensolaris200811
svcadm refresh application/pkg/server
svcadm enable application/pkg/server

tail -f  /var/svc/log/application-pkg-server:default.log

ls /export/ips/opensolaris200811
  catalog file pkg search.dir search.pag trans updatelog

2. Check then repository is working

wget localhost:80
