Created a rhel 7 repository server for updating offline clients. On RepoServer I installed httpd edited /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to ServerAdmin [email protected], ServerName192.168.166.13:80, DocumentRoot "/var/www/html". Started it, enabled it, ran httpd -t and Syntax is OK. Did reposync files are located at /var/www/html/rhel-7-server-rpms

On client side I created a baseos.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/
[baseos]
name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux - BaseOS
baseurl=http://192.168.166.13/rhel-7-server-rpms/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release

Ran yum clean all and yum repolist returns with :
[[email protected] ~]# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager
This system is not registered with an entitlement server. You can use subscription-manager to register.
repo id repo name status
baseos Red Hat Enterprise Linux - BaseOS 32,907
repolist: 32,907

Try to install package (unzip in this case) and get this:
[[email protected] ~]# yum -y install unzip
Loaded plugins: product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager
This system is not registered with an entitlement server. You can use subscription-manager to register.

What repositories do you currently see on your system. What's the output of the following?
Code:
yum repolist
ls /etc/yum.repos.d

I was on my phone when replying to your topic...

I'm assuming the other system where you have a repo has an subscription, I tried the following with Rhel8 system without a subscription.
1. mv /etc/yum.repos.d/redhat.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/redhat.disabled
2. yum remove subscription-manager
3. After that I copied over Rocky-BaseOS.repo, Rocky-AppStream and RPM-GPG-KEY-rockyofficial to my Rhel8 system.
4. I imported the key: rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-rockyofficial
Then I was able to install unzip from the Rocky repos on my Rhel8 system as well as update it with the most recent packages from the Rocky repos. So all you have to do is step 2, which removes the subscription-manager from your system which keeps asking you for a subscription.
