I had issues setting up SMT on my servers and getting some of them to update OES2 SP3 properly. Some didn't have the OES2-Updates or OES2-Pool categories enabled, so i used a work around I found on the forum to try to fix that.

This is what i used:

1) Add the OES2 SP3 ISO into Yast.

Download the OES2 SP3 ISO
In Yast - Software - Installation Sources update the "Open Enterprise Server 2 SP2" with the new ISO, this should change it to "Open Enterprise Server 2 SP3"
Make sure you check sync with ZEnworks

2) Clean your product list.

run /usr/lib64/zmd/query-pool products

It should look something like this (but won't):

i|product|OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP3|2.0.3-0|x86_64
i|product|SUSE_SLES_SP3|10.3-0|x86_64

Note the i at the start to show it's installed i.e. if this i is missing it's not installed.

Remove all other products you don't need starting with the Migration Product:

zypper rm -type=product Novell-Open-Enterprise-Server-SP3-migration

You will get some conflict errors with the installed move-to-oes2-sp3-xxx packages, chose to delete them

Now install the OES2 SP3 Product.

zypper install --type=product OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP3

This should also delete OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP2, if not run:

zypper rm -type=product OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP2

3) Get the update repositories registered

Run:
suse_register

rug ca should now show the OES2 SP3 update channel.

Now update:

rug up.



Now my OES2 is showing that its running 20606.01 like the others, but when I do a check for updates, the above is shown. If I accept, it checks dependencies and then closes. I re-open online updates to find that its still there.

Any idea how to fix this issue?
