Started getting this error from zypper when trying to pull SLES updates....tracing this back to https://nu.novell.com/repo/repoindex.xml which appears to have been updated today. Is anyone else receiving a similar message?

zypper lu
Refreshing service 'nu_novell_com'.
Unexpected exception.

Got it on SLES 11sp1 too.

It seems it's a nu.novell.com server problem.

Hi
I see the issue as well now, so have raised it with my Novell contacts
to see what can be done.
