Re: running a mirror server.

If you are going to run a mirror to be used locally on our campus does
rsyncd need to be running and take part in the ability of the server

Because I noticed that although the rsync rpm has a rsync file and a
rsyncd.conf man page it does not contain a rsyncd file or a
rsyncd.conf file. So if these latter files are needed where does one
get them?
I presume you want to create a local mirror of FC2/updates/etc... and keep it up to date via a daily rsync script and have your campus FC2 boxes point to your mirror for updates. If this is what you want, then you do not need an /etc/rcyncd.conf file. Below is my rsync script and other config items for this.

#---begin script---
if [ -f $LOCKFILE ]; then
echo "rsync-fedora.us.lock exists, aborting..."
exit 1
rsync --delete -Pav mirrors.kernel.org::fedora.us/fedora/fedora/2/ /mirror/fedora.us/fedora/fedora/2/
#---end script---

Then create a symlink in your doc root pointing to your mirror
cd /var/www/html
ln -s /mirror/fedora.us/ fedora.us

Then modify the repository section of the yum.conf file on your clients (changing server name as appropriate)

name=Fedora Core 2 -- Fedora US mirror

name=Fedora Core 2 updates -- Fedora US mirror

name=Fedora Linux (stable) for Fedora Core 2 -- Fedora US mirror
