We are happy to announce that a new SUSE update infrastructure is in place in Microsoft Azure. The update infrastructure operated and maintained by SUSE provides updates to instances launched from SUSE released SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on demand images in Microsoft Azure.

Those using the latest images, released on 2014-11-06 or thereafter, will automatically connect to the new infrastructure. Those that have running instances started from images released prior to this date need to switch the instances to the new infrastructure. To switch a running instance follow these simple steps:

-> wget http://104.45.147.201/instanceInfraUpgrade.noarch.rpm

Then as root

# zypper --no-refresh --non-interactive in instanceInfraUpgrade.noarch.rpm
# instanceInfraUpgrade
# rm instanceInfraUpgrade.noarch.rpm

After the update to the new infrastructure "zypper lr" will point to repositories starting with "SMT"

The old infrastructure server will be disabled on June 30, 2015.

-- July 29, 2015 --
I added the '--no-refresh' option to the zypper command to prevent zypper from trying to refresh the repositories. The old update infrastructure was removed on June 30th, as announced. Anyone trying to follow the procedure that still has the old update infrastructure configured will run into issues if the '--no-refresh' option is not used.

The old infrastructure server will be disabled on June 30, 2015.

The legacy infrastructure server is now offline. *If* you are experiencing any issues receiving updates, please check the procedure outlined above, for migrating to the new infrastructure, or start a new instance.

Is there something i missed? I can't install the rpm with the following errors


zypper --non-interactive in instanceInfraUpgrade.noarch.rpm

zypper is trying to refresh the existing repo, which fails. thus the whole process falls over. Run

rm -rf /etc/zypp/repos.d/*

first, then run

zypper --non-interactive in instanceInfraUpgrade.noarch.rpm

hi rjschwei

After removing the existing repos, the command return similar response

# zypper --non-interactive in instanceInfraUpgrade.noarch.rpm
Refreshing service 'susecloud'.

And i try to nslookup azure-update.susecloud.net
it return to Server: 168.63.129.16
Is it normal one ?

Sorry, the given command only removes the repo, but leaves the service, which also needs to be removed:

zypper rs susecloud

We forgot to remove the DNS entry, that has now been taken care of.

Hello, a question about this new update infrastructure (OK not so new now).

Is this service hosted in the Azure DC for each region? We are operating from the North Europe (Dublin) region, and deploying the new SLES 11 SP4 images. Are there now SLES update servers deployed into North Europe for this purpose?

We found that the SLES image has the registercloudguest script which executes when a new VM is deploying. This script tries to connect to SMT servers from /etc/regionserverclnt.cfg file by https protocol:

# cat /etc/regionserverclnt.cfg
[server]
api = regionInfo
certLocation = /var/lib/regionService/certs
regionsrv = 104.45.154.114,104.45.31.195,191.237.254.253,23.10 0.36.229,23.101.26.184

We are wondering where these IP addresses are hosted? We can see they are registered to Microsoft (via whois) but they are not listed in the published Microsoft range for North Europe.

We need to conform to company IT Security policies, and so we need to understand where these servers are hosted, who is managing them.

Many thanks!

Those IP addresses are our geodistributed region servers. regionsrvclnt will request from (at least) one of the region servers, and it will respond with information about your local SMT servers, which, yes, run in each region.

The IP addresses of all our servers are available via the `pint` command line tool; e.g. :


$ pint microsoft servers

will return a list of the IP addresses for both the region servers and all SMT servers; you probably want


$ pint microsoft servers --regionserver
$ pint microsoft servers --smt --region 'North Europe'

in order to give you the global region servers (same as the list in the config file) and your region-local SMT servers.

Just for reference, here's the current output:


$ pint microsoft servers --regionserver
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<servers>
<server ip="23.101.26.184" name="" region="Southeast Asia" type="regionserver"/>
<server ip="191.237.254.253" name="" region="Brazil South" type="regionserver"/>
<server ip="104.45.31.195" name="" region="West Europe" type="regionserver"/>
<server ip="104.45.154.114" name="" region="East US" type="regionserver"/>
<server ip="23.100.36.229" name="" region="West US" type="regionserver"/>
</servers>


$ pint microsoft servers --smt --region 'North Europe'
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<servers>
<server ip="104.45.85.11" name="smt-azure.susecloud.net" region="North Europe" type="smt"/>
<server ip="104.45.85.45" name="smt-azure.susecloud.net" region="North Europe" type="smt"/>
</servers>


Have a lot of fun!

Hi,

I realize this is from 3 years ago, but is this still the current update infrastructure?

I have inherited a few servers that are SLES 11 SP2 and I am getting the following error for all repositories that use "default-ec2-update.susecloud.net". I think the update script has not been run on the affected servers, would it still work or have there been additional changes, etc?
