zac esa

I have configured ZCM11sp1 to download SLES10sp3 (64bit) and OES2sp3 (64bit) patches from Novell.
This works and all the patches seem to be there, but I am unable to get zac esa to work...

On my OES2 server I enter "zac esa --type ZYPP http://<primary server>/SLES10-SP3-Online sles-10-x86_64"
But I always get error "Could not add external service sles-10-x86_64 Error : Service could not be added".

Anyone knows what I am doing wrong?
Is there a command I can run to list my repositories?

Re: zac esa

If you have already downloaded patches on the server, using subscriptions, then those can be pushed as bundles to the device and have them installed. zac esa is used only if you additionally want to add any other external repositories on the device. If zac esa is not able to add, kindly look into zmd-messages to see why communication is failing. The packages that have flown down to the agent can be listed using zac se command and the repositories that have been added can be listed using zac esl command.
