Trying to install glibc-common 686 on a x64 system


I hoping someone can help me. I am running a 64 bit RH 6.5 Server, and have to install glibc.686 for a Symantec package I need to install. A prerequisite for glibc.686 is glibc-common. I'm trying to install this manually, as it's not on our local repository, but when I try, I get the following error:

[root@opsserver OpsCenter_7.6.0.1_Unix]# yum install ./glibc-common-2.12-1.7.el6.i686.rpm
Setting up Install Process
Examining ./glibc-common-2.12-1.7.el6.i686.rpm: glibc-common-2.12-1.7.el6.i686
./glibc-common-2.12-1.7.el6.i686.rpm: does not update installed package.
Error: Nothing to do

Is what i'm trying even possible? Is it possible to have both sets of glibc-common (686 & x64) libraries installed? And if so, how do I go about installing it? Many thanks!

I managed to resolve this by pointing the server directly to the external RH repository.

When trying to install glibc.i686 from our internal repo's, it'd ask for glibc-common x86, for some reason this wasnt required when using the external repo.
