Thread: Tumbleweed and openSUSE 11.4 mirroring with SMT

  1. #1

    Default Tumbleweed and openSUSE 11.4 mirroring with SMT

    I have several SLES 11sp1 servers and using SMT (Subscription Management Tool) to provide local mirroring and prevent all the unnecessary web traffic to update all these machines. I found this article which is working out quite nicely to mirror the openSUSE 11.3 Updates which prevents all my openSUSE 11.3 machines from all going out getting the same update.
    I am looking to try and do the same with openSUSE 11.4 and with openSUSE 11.4 using the Tumbleweed repos. Has anyone done this or can someone provide some insight on what I need to do.

    I am thinking I can run this command
    smt-setup-custom-repos --name OpenSUSE_114_Updates --description "OpenSUSE 11.4 Updates" --exturl --productid *don't know what productid I should use*
    to provide me with openSUSE 11.4 Updates. For the Tumbleweed repo would I do the same and would that work?
    smt-setup-custom-repos --name OpenSUSE_Tumbleweed --description "OpenSUSE Tumbleweed" --exturl --productid *don't know what productid I should use*
    Again I don't know what productid I should use or if it really even matters, could I use one that is not being used?

    I am trying to limit how many machines go out to the Internet to pull down updates. I would really like to have one system (SMT) pulll down any new files and all my clients get their updates from the SMT server.

    you are, of course, welcome to ask here..
    and, you may get a great answer here..

    but in my opinion the best place to ask a Subscription Management Tool
    question is over in, and any/all questions you have
    on Tumbleweed should be answered by the Tumbleweed experts (who do not
    frequent the openSUSE forum, and have so far not produced a
    significant volume of documentation to answer your question *or* give
    us a reservoir from which to draw) so i suggest you contact them via
    the means they prescribe "give a feedback, share experience and report
    issues to the openSUSE Factory mailing list. ".
    cite here:

    on the other hand, maybe a SLE_ and 11.4+Tumbleweed using guru here are very welcome to hang out and see..

    Tried LibreOffice? Do that and help at
    [NNTP via openSUSE 11.3 + KDE4.5.5 + Thunderbird3.1.8]
