No update channel for OES2 SP1

I found a great TID to add a update channel for OES2 SP1.

This is a short version of it:

  1. Check with the command “/usr/lib/zmd/query-pool products” the installed products. You will see something like:

    noes7:~ # /usr/lib/zmd/query-pool products
    |product|OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP1|2.0.1-0|i686
    |product|SUSE_SLES_SP2|10.2-0|i686
    i|product|SUSE_SLES_SP2|10.2-0|i686

    Notice the “i” before SUSE_SLES_SP2|10.2-0|i686. This means that the products SLES10SP2 is installed. There is no “i” before

    product|OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP1|2.0.1-0|i686.

  2. Give the command

    zypper install –type=product OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP1

    mark OES2 as installed. You should get a question to add OES2 as a product.
    Afterwords you can check by repeating step 1

  3. Check with

    rug sl

    the rule number for nu.novell.com. First we will remove this channel to add it again later on. To remove the channel enter

    rug sd [channel nr]

  4. Stop ZMD en remove the database:

    rczmd stop
    rm /etc/zmd/secret /etc/zmd/deviceid
    rczmd start

  5. Remove the Suse Register information


    rm /var/cache/SuseRegister/lastzmdconfig.cache

    and re-run Suse Register

    
    
    suse_register -a regcode-sles=SLES_ACTIVATIONCODE -a regcode-oes=OES_ACTIVATIONCODE -a email=EMAILADDRESS"

  6. Check with

    rug sl

    if the update channel is added.

Thats all!
