Re: [PLUG] RHEL installation - Installation Source prompt - Error setting up a base repository

If you are installing from ISO you should be able to use that as your installation media (make sure you have the full ISO not just the boot media one). After the install you can run the following command to link it to red hats CDN:
subscription-manager register --username (your rh username) --password (your rh password) --auto-attach

After this I would run history -c to make sure you dont leave your password sitting in a plain text file.

Also yes Red Hats support is awful and at most times useless.

I just signed up and paid for a Red Hat subscription, and downloaded the RHEL 7.4 ISO image, made a bootable USB, booted it and am trying to install it. Under Installation Source, I get "Error setting up a base repository". I have been searching for answers, but cannot find any article that tells me what base repository I should set up. Every URL I try gives me the error.

I have e-mailed Red Hat support; let's see if anyone answers (their on-line help is truly awful). Meanwhile if anyone can point me to the answer, I'd appreciate it. Thank you very much in advance.
