We had to change our mirror address linux.nssl.noaa.gov (126.96.36.199).
The Name is the same, just the IP address changed. I have not been able
to sync with download(x).fedora.redhat.com after the change.
[root@statler mirror]# /usr/local/bin/rsync -vaH
--delete --address=192.168.2.72 download.fedora.redhat.com::fedora-web/
rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer (104)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(759)
Which I would assume is an ACL error. I did update us in the mirror
manager and hoped that would fix
it, but I let if go over the weekend and it did not change. Could this
be fixed and could I get access to

We are considering setting up a private mirror. We would like to know
much disk space is required to do the entire package ( Fedora - the
whole enchilada ).

Is download-i2 going to come back online anytime soon? Ibiblio has been
using download3 for a while now as download-i2 isn't reachable to them
anymore; download3 is overloaded and often rejecting connections. With
TPA gone and download-i2 offline, now all Tier  mirrors and anyone
else still in the ACL are pulling from download, all out of PHX...

Okay, thanks. I just tried it and I can connect to the site now. But it
is no longer part of the mirrorlist (probably has been dropped for the
same reason you could not connect to it). Do you still get the errors?
Is it still listed in the output of:
So there seems to have been trouble with that site and the mirrorlist
management requires a few hours to pick the problem up, but right now
you should not be seeing any more errors (I hope).

This is to let you know that I am not able to download fedora through IIT
Madras mirror. Also annoying thing is that I am not asked to choose mirror
site but directed to nearest mirror automatically. While this should be
helpful in IDEAL world but it does not exist!!! So I request you to ask the
users to choose the mirror they want while suggesting the list of 5 or 10
Thanks and Regards,

Yesterday it was on the list and today it has been dropped because your
site is no longer up to date for some reason. The crawler checks your
mirror in certain intervals and if the site seems to be no longer up to
date it is dropped from the list. To see if it is up to date can be seen
on https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mirrormanager/host_category/3714. All
the directories under "Up-to-Date Directories this host carries" are the
ones which are up to date. So right now you seem to be missing
something, or the crawler was not able to connect to your host. It will
reappear on the mirror list once it up to date again (either determined
by the crawler or you have to run report_mirror).

Typically you would run it through cron.

I hope that is not your real password ;-) You really should not mail
your passwords around.
Dear Mirror-Admin, I pulled some contents from Tier 1/2 mirror, created account in the MirrorManager, registered our mirror in the mirror manager and run report_mirror successfully.
When our mirror will list in publiclist and mirrorlist?

If you do not need the automatic redirection then you can do whatever
you want ;-)

No. Private mirrors do not get direct access to the master mirror servers
anyway. Therefore you should use a tier 1 or tier 2 mirror if doing a
private mirror setup (with mirrormanager and client redirection).

Yes, the whole setup is just to help you and your installation so that
you do not need to change the configuration for all your clients. With
mirrormanager and the private mirror setup you would get an automatic
redirection to your private mirror. If that is not possible or if you do
want it you can of course do whatever you want with the data. Most
mirrors offer rsync access, so just pick one sync the data and you are

I received this bug report while installing some software. The
notification stated that it did not know where to forward the report, so
I am delivering it to you.
I hope it helps.
Thank-you for your product,
