Linux – Re-sign an rpm package

Working on the Puppet manifest to install the newrelic-sysmond package to all the nodes. I want to host the newrelic-sysmond.rpm on the company repository server but in that case the i have to re-sign the rpm.

What i need to do is to download the rpm from the New Relic repository, move it to the RPM build server and run the following command.

  • rpm --resign newrelic-sysmond-1.3.1.437-1.x86_64.rpm

 

You will be prompted to enter the passphrase and that’s it.

Done =)
