Hi Alison,

> I was supposed to manually add this iso file as a repository.

this won't get you any updates, though. Those are distributed via online repositories, which will have to be added to the system.

If your license would have been from SUSE, you'd have received a license code with your package that you enter during registration. Then the (system and update) repositories are added automagically.

Since this is an HP-supplied license, some things may work differently. I found this document https://www.suse.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7002791 (for SLED10) stating that you'll have to buy a support pack from HP to receive updates and that the registration key comes with that support pack.
