Convert RHEL 5.x to Oracle Linux 5.x

Convert RHEL to Oracle Linux

Log on to the RHEL server as the "root" user and remove the existing yum repository files.

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
rm *.repo

Download the key and repository file from public-yum.oracle.com.

wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-el5 -O /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle
gpg --quiet --with-fingerprint /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle
wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo

Erase the "rhn-client-tools" package, as this will cause conflicts with "up2date" during the full update.

yum erase rhn-client-tools -y
yum update --skip-broken -y
yum install up2date -y

Restart the server.

shutdown -r now

The server is now an Oracle Linux server, updated with all the latest packages.
