      What I'm doing wrong?

      Thanks and regards,

      Could I ask for the result of the cat command from the created repo for the SBR Endpoints product?
      Should be located in /etc/yum.repos.d dir

      Hi Djaw,

      Here are:

      [root@STORWARE yum.repos.d]# cat vProtect.repo
      # Storware Backup & Recovery - Enterprise backup solution for virtual environments repository
      name = vProtect
      baseurl =
      gpgcheck = 0
      [root@STORWARE yum.repos.d]# cat MariaDB.repo
      # MariaDB 10.6 CentOS repository list - created 2023-02-14 09:39 UTC
      name = MariaDB
      # is a dynamic mirror if your preferred mirror goes offline. See for details.
      # baseurl =$releasever/$basearch
      baseurl =$releasever/$basearch
      # gpgkey =
      gpgkey =
      gpgcheck = 1[root@STORWARE yum.repos.d]# pin

      There are also the CentOS repos:


      Please let me know if you need these too.

      Hi Cristian,
      Repo looks fine

      If you want to update the server hosting UI Storware Backup & Recovery, use the yum update vprotect-server command

      yum update sbr-endpoints-server refers to the application component used to backup computers in the organization.

      Please also remember to update vprotect-node along with server update

    • @djaw said in Storware update went wrong:

      yum update vprotect-server

      Hi Djaw

      Thank you, I was able to update both with the commands:

      • yum update vprotect-server
      • yum update vprotect-node

      Thanks and regards,
