http://18.104.22.168/Screenshot-YaST2@zen.png <---- screenshot of error in online update
I had issues setting up SMT on my servers and getting some of them to update OES2 SP3 properly. Some didn't have the OES2-Updates or OES2-Pool categories enabled, so i used a work around I found on the forum to try to fix that.
This is what i used:
1) Add the OES2 SP3 ISO into Yast.
Download the OES2 SP3 ISO
In Yast - Software - Installation Sources update the "Open Enterprise Server 2 SP2" with the new ISO, this should change it to "Open Enterprise Server 2 SP3"
Make sure you check sync with ZEnworks
2) Clean your product list.
run /usr/lib64/zmd/query-pool products
It should look something like this (but won't):
Note the i at the start to show it's installed i.e. if this i is missing it's not installed.
Remove all other products you don't need starting with the Migration Product:
zypper rm -type=product Novell-Open-Enterprise-Server-SP3-migration
You will get some conflict errors with the installed move-to-oes2-sp3-xxx packages, chose to delete them
Now install the OES2 SP3 Product.
zypper install --type=product OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP3
This should also delete OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP2, if not run:
zypper rm -type=product OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP2
3) Get the update repositories registered
rug ca should now show the OES2 SP3 update channel.
Now my OES2 is showing that its running 20606.01 like the others, but when I do a check for updates, the above is shown. If I accept, it checks dependencies and then closes. I re-open online updates to find that its still there.
Any idea how to fix this issue?
here's the output of cat /etc/*release
