RHEL 6.3 Mysql Install

Skittles asked:

I am attempting to install mysql on a server. It’s a fresh install of RHEL 6.3. Yet, when I run ‘yum install mysql mysql-server, I get the following messages.

Loaded plugins: product-id, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
Setting up Install Process
No package mysql available.
No package mysql-server available.
Error: Nothing to do

Could someone tell my if I am missing something here as the above message only indicates to me that the repo being used doesn’t have what I am wanting to install in it. If I am just not using a proper repo, perhaps you could direct me accordingly. I am using EPEL.

epel      Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - x86_64          7,676
rpmfusion-free-updates      RPM Fusion for EL 6 - Free - Updates    162
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates   RPM Fusion for EL 6 - Nonfree - Updates  22


My answer:

This appears to be a bug in RHEL 5.8 and 6.3 (mirror). You should contact Red Hat for a solution if the one provided does not work for you.

Edit: Since the other answer was actually correct, and whoever it was deleted it… You also must have an active Red Hat subscription for the machine.
