RedHat Satellite server - Setting up HP Repository

Hi all,

We have been using Satellite to patch our RedHat servers for a while but up until recently these have only been virtual machines. Now we have a requirement to install a few physicals and I am trying to setup a sync a custom channel for the HP reository.

Our setup is that the Satellite server is going through a proxy (and it is working for the OS patches from RHN). I used the HP guide from their site and modified where necessary since they have changed some of the paths and names. It all looks straight forward but when I attempt to reposync I get an "Error setting up repositories: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository ..."

I checked that I can access the path from the Satellite server and it does appear ok.

I have also tried using the spacewalk-repo-sync method and get the same message.

My Satellite server is running on a VM and using RHEL 6.5.

That appears to deal with issues of the client to the satellite server. My problem is getting the repository installed and syncing from HP down to my satellite server.
