Install this update to enable SLE10 GA and SP1 update mirroring.



Problem description

This patch updates the SLE10 update mirroring tool yup to handle the Service Pack 1 channels.
Included in the patch are:
  • Configuration updates for /etc/sysconfig/yup Especially there is now a YUP_SUBVERSIONS variable which can include GA and SP1 tags.
  • A general documentation for SP1 YUP related migration in the document: /usr/share/doc/packages/yup/YUP-SLE10SP1-notes.pdf
  • A sample script for a unattended migration of a SLES 10 or SLED 10 GA system to Service Pack 1 when using a YUP mirrored tree. The script can be found in: /usr/share/doc/packages/yup/switch-enterprise-nu-mirror You need to specify in the script:
    • OLD_UPDATES_SERVICE_URL - the previous YUP url you used for GA updates.
    • NEW_SP_ONLINE_URL - The URL to the SP1-Online migration channel.
    • NEW_SP_ONLINE_NAME - The user visible name of the ZMD channel for above channel.
    • NEW_SP_UPDATES_URL - The URL to the SP1-Updates updates channel.
    • NEW_SP_ONLINE_NAME - The user visible name of the ZMD channel for above channel.
    When running it will automatically install all updates that Service Pack 1 consists of, then change the respective product information on the system and then install all current Service Pack 1 updates.
    The script should be tested carefully and can be adjusted to your specific needs.
Also please note that the NCC account now also supports "Mirror Credentials" for your companies product subscriptions which allow mirror access to channels.


Please install the updates provided at the location noted below.
