This is caused by POA-37576 - "PPM mirrors synchronization problems"
If there is only one PPM mirror in Parallels Operations Automation (POA) and it is located on the POA Management node, ignore the task and do not use synchronization in the future. This functionality is overlapped by the updates/upgrades installation mechanism.
During the installation of updates, PPM packages (tgz files) are extracted from the distributed files and placed into the directory
/usr/local/pem/install/tarballs/ on the POA Management Node. As a result, the contents of the PPM mirror
http://<MN_IP>/tarballs is updated whenever an installation is carried out.
If you would like to fix the task:
Create a temporary directory in /usr/local/pem/install/tarballs:
# mkdir /usr/local/pem/install/tarballs/tmp_ppm/
Copy the files from tarballs to this directory:
# cp /usr/local/pem/install/tarballs/*tgz /usr/local/pem/install/tarballs/tmp_ppm/
Add the URL
http://<MN_IP>/tarballs/tmp_ppmto Infrastructure > Package Repository > URLs
- Re-run the failed task.
