Following error appears in OA 6.0 precheck report (or OA Upgrade Precheck Report: 5.5 -> 6.0 upgrade precheck)
Check PA Central YUM repo access [pleskd]: URL http://download.pa.parallels.com/pa/6.0/RPMS/ is expected to be available from all managed hosts with pleskd RPM installed. Some of them listed bellow have access problems:
OA 6.0 precheck script by default initates connection from every linux host to http://download.pa.parallels.com/pa/6.0/RPMS/ and reports hosts with problems. This error usually appears on hosts with only internal IP addresses without direct access to internet like POA management node.
Choose one of the most suitable options:
- Configure direct access to download.pa.parallels.com from affected hosts
- Provide http proxy for access. Use precheck with key --repo-proxy-url. It should be able to connect to download.pa.parallels.com and POA internal package mirror on Management Node.
- Create own PA central repository mirror using instructions from POA 6.0 Linux Platform Deployment Guide 'Creating and Synchronizing PA Central Repository Mirror'. Rsync URL rsync://download.pa.parallels.com/pa60/RPMS/ should be used for PA 6.0. Run precheck with --repo-base-url option.
Note: Options --repo-proxy-url and --repo-base-url are system wide: if a proxy specified during precheck it should be used for upgrade and will be added to yum configuration on all linux hosts.
