license issue from RHEL to centos after converting .

Postby dncs0725 » 2015/07/09 09:59:49

we've got many Redhat Enterprise Linux(RHEL) 5. and I want to convert servers over to CentOS to save on licensing costs.
I searched 2 sites.
centos.org http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/MigrationGuide

softlayer.com : http://knowledgelayer.softlayer.com/pro ... hat-centos

question 1. In softlayer, they say there are no issue to convert if uninstall "redhat-release, yum-rhn-plugin,rhn-client-tools rhn-setup rhn-check rhn-virtualization-common rhnsd"
In here, we run rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME} %{VENDOR} \n" | grep "Red" | wc -l ==> 640

but, In centos.org, they added some procedure after working guide in softlayer ,
yum reinstall $(rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME} %{VENDOR} \n" | grep "RedHat".
In here, we run rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME} %{VENDOR} \n" | grep "Red" | wc -l ==> 16

Is there any issue if we run by softlayer guide.?

question 2 , after reinstall all package , we found we can;t reinstall some package
rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME} %{VENDOR} \n" | grep "Red"
=========================================
rhnlib
rhnsd
gnome-desktop
subscription-manager-firstboot
python-rhsm
rhel-instnum
rhn-setup
rhn-setup-gnome
pango
pango
rhn-client-tools
subscription-manager-gnome
subscription-manager
kernel
rhn-check
gnome-desktop
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I removed all rpm by rpm -e --nodep, but we can't remove, and reinstall pango,,,
Is there any license issue if we leave some RedHat rpm in our server by redhat?

What is the full output from yum when you try to yum remove those packages? What happens when you try to yum reinstall pango ?
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

I solved the problem. the reason is that RHEL rpm is newer than centos rpm

[root@localhost CentOS]# rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs pango-1.14.9-8.el5.centos.3.x86_64.rpm

package pango-1.14.9-8.el5_7.3.x86_64 (which is newer than pango-1.14.9-8.el5.centos.3.x86_64) is already installed
