SLES10SP4, OES2SP3, NOWSSBS2.5 - SLES update channel gone?

This is a fresh install of NOWS SBE-2.5, with a media-update to SLES10SP4 and OES2SP3. I saw a lot of prior issues with OES update channels being missing, but in my case the SLES channel is missing.

/usr/lib/zypp/zypp-query-pool products
shows


SUSE_SLES_SP4|10.4-0|i686
OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP3|2.0.3-0|i686
NOWS_SBE|2.5|i686


SPident identifies the version as
SLE-10-i386-SP4 + "online updates"


and oes-SPident identifies itself as
SLES-10-OES2-SP3-i386 + "online updates"


Issuing a register_suse command with the option to rebuild sources only subscribes to OES2-SP3-Pool, OES2-SP3-Updates, and OES2-SBE25-Updates, notably lacking an entry for SLES10-SP4-Pool and Updates.

Does anyone have any idea how to get the SLES10 channels to subscribe properly?

Thank you

If you have questions regarding NOWS SBE i.e. when the product is
installed using the automated scripted install, it is better to ask in
the NOWS SBE forum. There are some issues specific to the way the
scripted install works.

If you installed the component products manually, then it's not really
NOWS SBE even though you are still governed by the NOWS SBE EULA. When
you say you have installed NOWS SBE 2.5 everyone will assume you used
the scripted install.

If you installed the component products manually, (which IMO is the
best option) I would recommend downloading and installing the latest
versions of SLES, OES, GroupWise, etc., rather than going through an
upgrade process. Maintenance is required for entitlement to the latest
versions.

The first thing to verify is that your maintenance is current. If you
don't have maintenance or if it has expired, you won't be able to
subscribe to the update channels.

Next I would look at /var/log/messages to see if there is anything to
give you a clue as to what might be wrong.

Then I would look for TIDS at www.novell.com/support. There are several
TID's describing issues with registering. You are probably the best one
to determine what might be applicable. I would begin by looking at:

TID 3030857 How to register SLE 10/11 using the command line

TID 7008364 Availability of SLES10 SP4 for Novell Open Enterprise
Server 2 (OES2) customers

TID 3303599 Resetting your ZEN Updater and Novell Customer Center key

I'm sorry I didn't spot this the first time around but you can't do it!
