How to enable a repository in Redhat Satellite 6 client host ?

First you need to add the repository in Content View in GUI and then re-publish it to new version.

And then we can enable that particular disabled repository using below commands.

1. Check out all available repos.
It will show all repos including the ones which are disabled.

[root@ngel002 ~]# yum repolist all

2. Now enable the required repo.

[root@ngel002 ~]# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-6-server-realtime-rpms
Repository 'rhel-6-server-realtime-rpms' is enabled for this system.

The repository is now enabled, it will show the packages on server from that repo also when we run “yum repolist”.
