Since SLES is no longer available, I am posting here.
Have a SLES12Sp4 server with Zenworks2017
Problem is that the renewed registration code is not working.
So in NCC I find the key for Suse Linux Entreprise Server.
I can enter that key, but it will not accept.
When I login to SCC ( Suse ) I can see the system, but I cannot activate the new subscription key.
How is this now supposed to work ?

Thank you for the quick response. 2 questions :
1) Is there a manual to follow ?
2) In Suse CC there is no "active" subscribtion. And when I enter the key from the NCC is says in it invalid....
I recenty had to contact
regarding such an issue. But please note that AFAIK you'd need a "real" SLES license (i.e. one purchased from SuSE) for ZCM.
Please don't nail me on this one as i'm a TEC assuming licenses to be simply be THERE when i arrive, but this this one
doesn't leave too much space for misunterstanding. You can always use the appliance, of course, without additional SLES licenses. Being in business 35 years, personally, i prefer full-blown OS (instead of someone restricting me to something someone thinks it's enough), nevertheless i've recently migrated quite a few instances to appliance-only environments. To summarize: LIKELY you'll have to decide between full control and $$$.
More preciselely, for GW, regardless of running agents, webaccess, GMS, whatsoever, the SLES code grabbed from the MF portal is legally ok and SHOULD work. From recent experience, there's an issue with the new SuSE system itself, which didn't even allow to purchase a new, plain SuSE entitlement (without any reference to MF whatsoever). I have a customer who renewed his OWS entitlement as per April 30th. (as always), but all of sudden the corresponding SLES activations (for GMS and SMT) ceased to work. After submitting details to ---entitlements---at---microfocus---.---com we were provided an activatable code. But legally, i think, this shouldn't be used for ZCM. And officially, OES is an unsupported server platform for ZCM.
Yes my situation is the same : the SLES activations ceased to work
Buying a separate SLES costs more then the OWS suite itself ?
And I still have an "active" SLES license in the MF portal ?
What kind of strange situation is MF putting us in ?
For future upgrades and migrations of ZEN I recommend to use the appliance. It get all neccessary patches via Micro Focus. Maybe you want to setup a lokal SMT-Server (MF-SMT1.1 as Add-On at OES2018SP2).
It is pretty cool to have all needed patch channels onPrem.
