Our IBM repository hosting only supports FTP at the moment, but

In the meantime, you can host your own HTTP mirror or sync the
repository it to the IFS using plugin in the latest ACS. Of course,
this assumes that your workstation can access FTP.

OK, I'm going to try an experiment.

I've setup a mirror of the ftp site on my own server (yum-mirror.midrange.com).

Just change the ibm.repo to look like this:


Interestingly, yum doesn't like my letsencrypt certificate.

/qopensys/pkgs/bin/yum list
https://yum-mirror.midrange.com/software/ibmi/products/pase/rpms/repo/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#60 - "SSL certificate
problem: unable to get local issuer certificate"
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: ibm. Please verify its path and try again

It works fine with the non ssl url.

I've got a cron job running that will update the mirror daily.
