Subscription Management Tool (sles11sp3)

Published by Gábor Nyers
Based on SLES 11 SP1 64-bit x86

This appliance contains the Subscription Management Tool on top of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11.

The Subscription Management Tool is a package proxy system that is integrated with Novell Customer Center and provides key NCC capabilities locally at the customer site, thus maintaining all the capabilities of the Novell Customer Center while allowing a more secure centralized deployment.

Features
-——-

  • Contains the SMT 1.1
  • The appliance is available as virtual machine, as physical machine image and
    as bootable CD image
  • Documentation is available from the appliance itself
  • As a compromize between user friendliness and flexibility, the appliance uses
    DHCP to configure its IP address, and announces itself through the
    ZeroConf/Bonjour protocol. It can be reached on the ``smt11.local`` address
  • Contains the ``puppet`` client software, so including the appliance in an
    enterprise configuration management system is easy

Changes
-——

  • The appliance is based on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server SP2
  • The appliance is using the official Subscription Management Tool
    repository directly from the Novell Update service. This repo has previously
    not been available at SUSE Studio
  • The appliance announces itself using the Zeroconf/Bonjour protocol.
    Directly connected clients can contact it on the smt11.local address,
    without changing any DNS related settings.
  • Virtualized in a KVM environment, the appliance shuts down gracefully if so
    requested by the hypervisor.
  • There is a described procedure based on `TID 7004986` and a helper script
    to backup all SMT related data. With these it is also possible to migrate
    the SMT data from an older version appliance to a newer one. See “Appliance
    Upgrade” document inside the appliance.
  • VMware ESX Tools (v. 8.0.2-208167.sles11) removed
    The vmware-tools package from the repository “VMware ESX Tools for SLES 11
    SP1” has a dependency problem, which causes that it is not usable in this
    appliance
  • Package changes:
  • added packages:
    acpid, avahi, fping, iputils, puppet, syslog-ng
