    Export appliance (Migration to Open Build Service)

    Hi,

    I am trying to migrate my appliance from SUSE Studio Onsite to Open Build Service. According to this I should find a file "source.kiwi.txz" after exporting my appliance. In my case the folder only contains a "source" folder, "create_appliance" script and "README" file. Why is there no file "source.kiwi.txz"? Is there a difference if I use SUSE Studio Onsite?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi
    Sorry for the delay, but have heard back;

    Yes. The SUSE Studio Onsite export is not prepared for this. In Onsite,
    the export is in another format. Basically the source directory isn't
    tared/compressed. You can try to do this manually in your untared
    'export' file with:

    tar -cJpf source.kiwi.txz --owner=nobody -C source .

    Then use that source.kiwi.txz to import.

    Thank you for your reply!

    I tried this before but obviously with the wrong options. Now I managed to import the compressed file to the public OBS but within my own OBS instance I had no luck.

    However in the public OBS the build is broken. The error tells me: "repo url not using obs:/ scheme: {SLES 11 SP3 Updates x86_64}". I guess, the source path in config.kiwi is wrong:
    Code:
    <source path="{SLES 11 SP3 Updates x86_64}" />
    I still have to figure out the correct path.

    It seems the source path should be something like
    Code:
    <source path="obs://SUSE:SLE-11:SP3/standard" />
