Hello All,

I am unable to find the repository for PostgreSQL 9.6. Few days back it was there but now I am unable to find it.

OS:SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications 12 SP2 (x86_64)

Please find the error below:

zypper addrepo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:database:postgresql/SLE_12_SP2/server:database:postgresql.repo
File '/repositories/server:database:postgresql/SLE_12_SP2/server:database:postgresql.repo' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/'

Abort, retry, ignore? [a/r/i/? shows all options] (a): a

Thanks,
Bhawana

You are pointed to an openSUSE repository, so not an official SLES
repository. As a result, you will need to contact the maintainer of that
repository to see if they plan on putting the build back. Alternatively,
you could create your own account on the Open Build Service, build the
software yourself, and then subscribe to it.

Looking up PostgreSQL 9.6 on https://software.opensuse.org/ I found this:

https://software.opensuse.org/package/postgresql96

The builds are for openSUSE Leap, but you may be able to use them if you
are okay with using non-SLES-official software, as you apparently were before.

On the other hand, it may be worth verifying that you need this version of
PostgreSQL rather than the one that comes with your version of SLES.
While OBS can build for various things, including SLES, the software there
is not officially from SUSE, and therefore is not supported by them. SLES
12 comes with PostgreSQL out of the box so unless the SAP version removed
it I do not think you should need to use it from outside sources. If SAP
needs something newer, then I would probably talk to SUSE (via an account
or sales representative) about getting the PostgreSQL version updated in
the official SLES repositories.

Good luck.

Thanks a lot for the heads up and quick response.
Actually I want to use PostgreSQL 9.6 version from the SUSE repository (not opensuse repository)
But currently the version that I am having in the repository ,by default with (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications 12 SP2 (x86_64)) is PostgreSQL 9.4.
Please let me know by when (or which SUSE version or SP would have PostgreSQL 9.6 as default) or is there any link where I can track the changes.

Thanks,
Bhawana
