You just need to use your entitlement certificates for RHEL to sync the RHEL
6/7 repositories. It doesn't matter if your Pulp server is running CentOS or
not. You can get your entitlement certificate by logging in to RHN. Once you
have that, copy it to your Pulp servers and create the RHEL repos like so:
$ pulp-admin rpm repo create -repo-id=rhel6-server-x86_64
This enables you to sync 'protected' RHEL repositories. To determine what
repositories your certificate entitles you to download you can use 'rct cat-ert
You obviously won't need entitlement certificates to sync CentOS repositories.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [Pulp-list] Using Pulp to serve RHEL 6, 7, and Centos 6, 7
I am trying to setup a central package repo for clients to include RHEL 6 and
7, and CentOS 6 and 7. I have found lots of simple examples documented where
folks are using Pulp to serve either RHEL, or CentOS, or other single distros,
but none for how to configure a more complex setup with multiple
distros/versions. The issue I see is around being able to download RHEL
packages from a Pulp server built on a different distro like CentOS, or version
RHEL 6 or 7.
We have RHEL 6 and 7 systems which are all licensed properly, but we use CentOS
6 or 7 for less critical servers and just want to be able to perform periodic
updates on them all by updating dev/test environments, and waiting a month (for
verifying application integrity) before updating from the same set of packages
in production environments.
Is there a way to do this? I can't even seem to tell if I can do this with
Satellite Server, but would prefer not to have to buy it as it would be
overkill in our environment?
Would someone please point me in the right direction? Would love to see an
example config of something similar.
Thank you, and best regards,
