  2. Log in.

  3. Copy the Customer Download Token.

Substitute your token for CUSTOMER_DOWNLOAD_TOKEN when configuring the package repositories.

Set Up Repository

  1. On each Enterprise Server node install the prerequisites for downloading the software from the Web.

    $ sudo yum install wget
    
  2. On each Enterprise Server node, configure package repositories and specify Enterprise Server 10.5:

    $ wget https://dlm.mariadb.com/enterprise-release-helpers/mariadb_es_repo_setup
    
    $ echo "5feb2aac767c512cc9e2af674d1aef42df0b775ba2968fffa8700eb42702bd44  mariadb_es_repo_setup" \
           | sha256sum -c -
    
    $ chmod +x mariadb_es_repo_setup
    
    $ sudo ./mariadb_es_repo_setup --token="CUSTOMER_DOWNLOAD_TOKEN" --apply \
          --skip-maxscale \
          --skip-tools \
          --mariadb-server-version="10.5"
