I'm trying to mirror the Web and Scripting module repo onto a SLES12 system:

Is the smt-repos (from smt-server package, correct?) command still the correct command to mirror a SLES repo on SLES12?

I can't seem to find a version of the smt-server package for SLES12, is the recommended approach to use the SLES11 SP3 package?

Once that's in place mirroring the repos should be as simple as running this, I assume:

for REPO in SLE-Module-Web-Scripting12-{Pool,Updates}; do
smt-repos $REPO sle-12-x86_64 -e
done

Hi
I've not used SMT to do what your trying, but the -e command is to enable them, AFAIK only needed once?

Have you checked you can mirror with the -m command?

Okay, that's good to know. But where to I find the package that provides smt-repos on SLES12? I've been looking through ISOs and Repos and 12 and so far nothing comes up. The docs say it's available at install time, but none of the RPMs on the install media have a package that provides a file called smt-repos.

Thanks for you help.

I see according to : https://www.suse.com/solutions/tools/faq.html#faq3

"There is no Subscription Management Tool (SMT) 12"

What is the supported method for mirroring repositories under SLES12 then?

Hi
A SMT server on a SLES 11 SP3 instance or via a SUSE Manager instance (which does use spacewalk).

Hi

In SLES 12 SP1, the SMT packages will be part of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server product.
No need to install an add-on or so - just install the smt package and be happy.
I hope this helps.
