Hi all,

I'm running a SLES11SP1 server with corresponding SMT to support our various VMs and physical hosts and came across the following situation:

We have licensed updates for all our physical SLES installations. I thought it to be a good idea to make SMT mirror the SLES11SP2 repositories before starting the upgrade process for our machines, so that we have fast access to those repositories. But unfortunately, those repositories are all marked as "not mirrorable":

Code:
smtserver:~ # smt-catalogs |head -3;smt-catalogs|grep -i sles11-sp2
.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
| Mirror? | ID  | Type | Name                                        | Target                 | Description                                                   | Can be Mirrored | Staging |

I assume this to be because we have no registered SLES11SP2 host yet... any way to get the corresponding repositories mirrorable, other than doing a first migration to SP2 via online access?
