I see this on our SMT server:

Code:

Note the dates...

Code:

Bash updates are more recent than the index.

When I look at 'yast smt' it tells me:

Code:
SLES11-SP3-Updates           ¦sle-11-x86_64 ¦x        ¦-      ¦2014-09-26 04:00:53¦SLES11-SP3-Updates for sle-11-x86_64
However the mirroring executes apparently fine... just ran it manually...

Code:
/mirrordata/repo/$RCE/SLES11-SP3-Updates/sle-11-x86_64/repodata # zgrep bash-3.2-147.22 *
/mirrordata/repo/$RCE/SLES11-SP3-Updates/sle-11-x86_64/repodata #
(nothing)

What could be the problem here?
