I have a customer that just installed a new SMT server, and they are
trying to have their first server update from that source. The SMT -
server name is - lifeboat2 and the server that they are trying to update
is called DC1-eDir

When they attempted to update the server they are getting the following
error:

Failed to parse XML metadata: Can't add repository at
http://lifeboat2.pwcs.edu/repo/$RCE/OES2-SP3-Online/sles-10-x86_64:
Unknown Error: Downloading metadata
failed (is YUM source?) or user did not accept remote source. Aborting
refresh.ERROR: Could not add 'http://Lifeboat2.pwcs.edu/': Failed to

refresh.Cannot execute /usr/bin/rug sa -t nu http://Lifeboat2.pwcs.edu/
SMT-http_Lifeboat2_pwcs_edu: Bad file descriptor
DC1-eDIR:~/downloads #

They also tried the following

We also try to edit the robots.txt file and added the " Allow:
/repo/keys " before the Disallow: / line but received the same results.

I forgot to let you know that but in both cases we get the same error.


Would anyone have any ideas what I can start looking into to fix this
problem?

Thank you,
