Hi
So you have subscriptions available on the ncc mirror credentials you
used?

You should see something like;


mgr-ncc-sync .
Updating Channel Family Information
Downloading Product information...

-> Found XXX products using 1 mirror credentials.

Downloading Subscription information...

-> Found YYY subscriptions using 1 mirror credentials.

Updating Upgrade Path Information

Hi
So if you log into the Novell Customer Center web page, under My
Products -> Mirror Credentials there is a list of channels available?

Hi
And under systems, you can see the SUSE Manager 1.7 is registered ok?

Can you ensure the system and cache is updated;


zypper ref -f
zypper patch
zypper up
mgr-ncc-sync -l

Hi
I'm guessing the attachment is the mirror list, so on the NCC page
under My Systems -> Systems there should be an entry with the SUSE
Manager hostname and under the OS column sle-11-x86_64? If it is then
double click on it and it then under the section 'Registered Software'
it should show "SUSE Manager 1.7 Server"?

If not then please re-register the server Via YaST -> Other Novell
Customer Center Configuration, dod forget to check the box and add your
registration code.

Did you get any output from the commands or updates?

Hi
There have been some internal network issues at SUSE so can you try
again as this maybe the cause of it not syncing at the moment. You do
have a product etc now. So try the list command again.

Hi
So you have 1 subscription, this is a SLED or SLES system? Remember
SUSE Manager is standalone and excluded.

Hi
I would get an evaluation activation code, setup a virtual machine and
run through and install and register with NCC, the check and you should
see 2 systems subscribed. The try the sync, if the channels appear then
you can delete from NCC and create an activation key etc and run the
curl command on the virtual machine to register it with SUSE Manager.

You would also need to remove all the NCC repo's from the virtual
machine.

Hi
So you created an activation key, copied and modified the bootstrap
script as required? If so what edits did you make on your copied
version of the bootstrap script?

Registering the client

- Under SUSE Manager server open the command link >
/srv/www/htdocs/pub/bootstrap
- Cp boostrap.sh boostrap-sles11.sh
- Vi boostrap-sles11.sh do the following
- Comment out echo using # in the front of line until reach Exit 1
- Under Activation_KEYS > type in 1-sles11
- Under Activation_KEYS add the following GPG keys with command in
between:
-
SUSE-xxxx.key
-
suse-xxxxCA.key
- Save the boostrap-sles11.sh
- Then login to the machine needing to become a suse manager’s client
- Go to command link and put the bootscript form the SUSE manager by
typing
- curl -skSO
https://test.contoso.com/pub/bootstrap/bootstrap.sles11.sh
- chmod +x bootstrap.sles11.sh
- ./ bootstrap.sles11.sh




Hi
I didn't enable the virtualization check box, aside from remming out
the exit 1 bit, the only other thing I changed was;
CODE]
FULLY_UPDATE_THIS_BOX=0
[/CODE]
You shouldn't need to add the gpg keys etc
Then run on the target machine;


curl -Sks https://test.contoso.com/pub/bootstrap/bootstrap.sles11.sh | /bin/bash

Hi
If you created a new key it would be 2-xxxx or did you delete the old
one?

The Description can be mixed characters, but the key shouldn't, for
example I used;

Description: SLES11-SP3-x86_64 key
Key: sles11-sp3-x86_64_key (the 1- is automatic, but needed in the
bootstrap script)

Selected the base channel etc and then registered a test system.

Hi
I think the gpg stuff being added must have been the issue?

So is the product channel available via the cli? If so then


mgr-ncc-sync -l
spacewalk-repo-sync -c sles11-sp3-pool-x86_64
spacewalk-repo-sync --channel sles11-sp3-pool-x86_64

Or use the web interface to sync.

Once you have the channel available, in the web UI, select Channels ->
manage Software Channels -> create new channel. Then when creating
select the parent channel you want it in, or make it a parent
(probably better to keep each product as a parent). Then you can add
the channel to your systems as required.

I installed the suse manager client on two sles 11 sp2 nad I can see them on the suse manger GUI but no update is available to patch these two sles 11 sp2, do I need to do any thing?
It is not possible because both sles servers have not update updated yet and the suse manager should pickup the patches but it does not show up any available patches, any idea? I attached the screenshot.

Hi
That's a good error, it means it's already syncing the packages from the repositories. If you go to Channels and hit 'Show All Child Channels' you should see the package counts increasing, see my attached screenshot as an example. It takes some time depending on your internet connection for me it was around 5 hours for the SLES repo....

Ok, I got it and it is too slow and I have ADSL 2+ but it is still 2 slow, I can't see the SLES 11 SP3 under Channels > All Channels.
I saw you attachment and you have OpenSUSE, how can I add the OpenSUSE 12.2?

Hi
So you are seeing the package count going up?

Just create your own repository channels, find a mirror that is close
by from here;
http://mirrors.opensuse.org/

I created a Parent, then added child ones as required, plus a local
repository on the SUSE Manager vm.

Note on my system it's not active yet (as in no systems added), I am
just about to start having a play with adding a system, but the repo
structure is different so it pulls all the rpms down, I only want
x86_64 and noarch, else it's a lot of packages (around 27,000 for
openSUSE 13.1 oss repo) get pulled down. So there is some more work to
do for me.

Hi
You can create your own parent channel under Channels->Manage Software
Channels, for example;

Channel Name*: openSUSE 12.2
Channel Label*: opensuse-12.2
Parent Channel: None
Architecture: x86_64
Channel Summary*: openSUSE 12.2

Then add a 12.2 repository under Manage Repositories;

Repository Label* opensuse-12.2-oss
Repository URL* http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/12.2/repo/oss/suse/
Has Signed Metadata? (I left unchecked)

Then add another channel called (This becomes a child of the parent);

Channel Name: openSUSE 12.2 OSS
Channel Label: opensuse-12.2-oss
Parent Channel: openSUSE 12.2
Architecture: x86_64
Summary: openSUSE 12.2 OSS Channel

And repeat adding repositories and child channels as per requirements.

The adding of openSUSE systems is still under development AFAIK, there
are some folks who have it working, but something I'm playing with at
the moment along with building the rpms, so not something I'm confident
sharing at this point.....

Great!!

Can you please guys make sure to add the Open SUSE because it will be easy to patch both SLES and OpenSUSE.

So I created a new channel for Open SUSE 12.2 and I added two repo opensuse-12.2-oss and opensuse-12.2-non-oss, can you please check the attached screenshot.

I also noticed that the SLES11 SP1 pool for x86_64 finished and it starts downloading the SLES 11 SP1 Update for x86_64. Is this means once it finishes the SLES SP1 then I will be able to patch the SLES 11 SP1, is this correct?

So is this the same for SLES 11 SP2 I have to wait until download all the patches then will be able to patch the SLES11 SP2.
One more issue I still can’t see the SLES11 SP3, how I am going to add the SLES11 SP3?

Great!!

Can you please guys make sure to add the Open SUSE because it will be
easy to patch both SLES and OpenSUSE.

So I created a new channel for Open SUSE 12.2 and I added two repo
opensuse-12.2-oss and opensuse-12.2-non-oss, can you please check the
attached screenshot.

I also noticed that the SLES11 SP1 pool for x86_64 finished and it
starts downloading the SLES 11 SP1 Update for x86_64. Is this means
once it finishes the SLES SP1 then I will be able to patch the SLES 11
SP1, is this correct?

So is this the same for SLES 11 SP2 I have to wait until download all
the patches then will be able to patch the SLES11 SP2.
One more issue I still can't see the SLES11 SP3, how I am going to
add the SLES11 SP3?

Hi
Yes, once the 'update' repos have synced, you should see things updating
on the overview screen if the registered systems have updates
available. You can then select, check and push the updates out.

If only the pools have synced, then you could start deploying
additional packages to the registered machines.

It seems to be a serial process, with only one sync occurring at a time.

Let the background syncs to finish and review the status then regarding
the SP3 repos, we can tackle that then if it's still an issue.

The screenshot looks fine also.

The progress of download the patches form the novell server is too slow. I will need to add the SLES 11 SP3, how do I add SP3?

Hi
So it hasn't appeared if you run;


mgr-ncc-sync -l

I would suggest logging in to http://www.suse.com and grabbing an eval
licence for SLES 11 SP3, it should then show in your NCC page, then run
the above command again.
