View Full Version : SLES12 - no update repositories in build service?

I noticed that no repositories are preset in a build basing on SLES12.
That means as well, no system updates can be applied.


As well, I did not find a suitable repo on OBS to include for that
purpose.

Does anyone have an idea what repo - at least for SLES12 updates - can
be used?
What is the plan from the Studio-Developers, if additional software
should be installed on an existing appliance? Or if update shall be
applied?

SUSE Studio is made to build application that others then deploy. Those
who deploy them can add their own activation codes to get updates, and you
can make that as simple as possible (maybe part of the first-start
routine) but it is not something you'll want to code in for just anybody,
as you'll be the one paying for the updates (subscription-based). That
would be a nice gift, but probably pretty expensive over time if your
application gets really popular.

To add a repository for updates your appliance user can use Yast at
runtime, which should be documented somewhere in the SLES 12 documentation.

They've most likely made it impossible to make updated SLES12 images as
that would make it possible to "acquire the updates" for unlicensed SLES
boxes.

They want you to fork money for the updates.

Well, adding a repo as such is not the problem, as some of the SLE
packages are backported and made available to the openSUSE community,
there should at least be some packages available.

But if I look at projects like SUSE:SLE-12:GA or SUSE:SLE-12:Update ,
there is no download repository attached to it.
Building an appliance without having the option to install security
updates is not the best idea....

AIUI, those are just test repos with the (released now to the open)
SLES12 sources.

Mainly intended for building packages for the next openSUSE release
that's (supposedly) based on SLES.

Building an appliance with security updates and then not being able to
update it due to a lack of license isn't exactly a bright idea either.

So why is there a SLES template on SUSEStudio at all? Just as a teaser?

Hi
Since I have SLES and SLED licenses I can build images on SUSE Studio
as either stand alone appliances and deploy manually or via SUSE
Manager which can integrate with SUSE Studio builds (or an onsite
version of SUSE Studio) and OBS or a local Build Service instance.

Folks create SLE image appliances for deploying their wares and expect
end users to have appropriate licenses or eval ones.

Did you find the backports repo? openSUSE:Backports:SLE-12,
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-12:Update.
