The Anaconda channel is created after mirroring the Anaconda channel from Anaconda Cloud. This channel has its own user, anaconda, that can control all the packages in the Repository web UI.
Upon creation, the anaconda user is given an initial random alphanumeric password. Reset this password from the server side using anaconda-server-admin tool as the anaconda-server local account:
sudo su - anaconda-server
anaconda-server-admin reset-password anaconda
After you have reset the initial password, you can go to the Repository webpage and log into the anaconda user account with the username anaconda and the new password.
As the anaconda user, you can remove specific packages or files if needed to curate your mirror. This can also be used to upload a specific package into the channel using the anaconda-client tool. You may need to configure anaconda-client to point to your Repository.
Upload a package to anaconda channel using anaconda-client
1. Log in as the anaconda user:
2. Upload the package:
