Hello,

I've just placed an SMT server and mirror just the repositories.
But can someone explain the differences between your individual
reposotories?
What should I mirror, because I will not download anything and wants to
unnecessarily wasting GB.

What is the differences between
SLES11-Extras
SLES11-Pool
SLES11-Updates
SLES11-SP1-Pool
SLES11-SP1-Updates
SLES11-SP2-Core
SLES11-SP2-Extension-Store
SLES11-SP2-Updates ??

This is my first SMT server and I'm not experienced with SLES and
Linux. Therefore, sorry for the simple question ;)

Thanks

What versions of SLES are you wanting to update via your new SMT server?

The SLES11-[Extras|Pool] are for the original SLES11 with no SP,
SLES11-SP1-* are SLES11 SP1, and SLES11 SP2 are for the next version of
SLES11, SP2, which hasn't yet been released (currently in closed beta).

-Pool can be used in place of install media/sources and -Updates are for
updated packages.

Whilst there may be many repositories available to mirror you should only
mirror those versions and architectures that are applicable for your
installed servers.

HTH.

Actually, SLES11-Extras is for any SLES11 Service Pack (unlike
SLES11-Pool), however
it is the "Unsupported Extras" channel and is not recommended to be
used.
