For Fedora and CentOS there are freely accessible repositories available. With RHEL this is a bit different. You need to have your own RHEL repository available locally and specify the location in repos section. Make sure you mark the repo as ephemeral. If you don't have a repository - you can mount RHEL ISO locally and specufy the path like this: file:///mnt/rhel-iso-mount-point.
Afterwards you'llbe able to build your RHEL AMI's.
Ahh ok that makes sense. We use Red Hat Satellite tho ... so not sure if i can grab it this way ...
Ok thanks for the info. Bummer tho! (edit: hit save too soon).
I can't think of any other way to get a RHEL SOE we build internally onto EC2. I thought maybe http://aws.amazon.com/solutions/global-solution-providers/redhat/ but that's not gonna give us our SOE.
AWS doesn't seem to be able to import Red Hat images (windows only?) ... so boxgrinder is my only hope :-)
Maybe mrepo up the RHN stuff? I gotta try, as a famous jedi once said "help me boxgrinder, you're my only hope!" :-)
Not a lot of luck so far ... boxgrinder'd be the killer app for this if it could do rhn ...
