There are no CA certificates shipped with any of our products, so it
doesn't know it can be trusted. This is something else we'd like to fix,
but for now I have a script that adds various CA certificates to the trust

OK, I'm going to try an experiment.

I've setup a mirror of the ftp site on my own server

Just change the ibm.repo to look like this:


Interestingly, yum doesn't like my letsencrypt certificate.

/qopensys/pkgs/bin/yum list
[2] [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.

I may have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me!
