I am giving IOmeter a try on Linux. More specifically I am creating a minimal RedHat install that I want to install the IOmeter client on, then clone the install a few dozen times. When I tried to download the IOmeter linux client I realized that the minimal RedHat install does not include wget. Since I did not have a reliable internet connection on my MacBook I wasn’t able to connect to the RedHat repos. I was able to search and find the following process on how to configure a local repo to be able to install packages from the cdrom.
Create a file: /etc/yum.repos.d/cdrom.repo
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
Run: yum clean all
Install needed packages:
yum install wget
