You need to use the SUSE offliine downloader to download the patches first..
For Offline catalog update, The Catalog Update job from the console is executed after patches are downloaded.
Check the docs below for details :
We have offline catalogs for SUSE 12 that point directly to the repo location on the SMT server. After mirroring packages from SUSE but prior to executing CUJ, we execute the suse_downloader.sh with the -createRepo option using repo as both the srcLocation and repoLocation.
Thank you very much for your answer.
We have the repo location divided into a lot of directories, ei not all rpms are located in the same directory (for example /Patches):
We have the rpm separated in for example:
In the execution of suse_downloader.sh if we can put only:
./suse_downloader.sh -createRepo -srcRepo "/Updates,SLES12-x86_64" -repoLocation "/SUSEPatches"
We don't have the rpms in /SUSEPatches but if we put for example:
./suse_downloader.sh -createRepo -srcRepo "/Updates/AB,SLES12-x86_64;/Updates/AC,SLES12-x86_64" -repoLocation "/SUSEPatches"
we have the rpms in /SUSEPatches and we can create the patch catalog in the BSAConsole.
The question, is there a way to put only the first directory (in this case /Updates) or it's necessary to add all directories (/Updates/AB , /Updates/AC...)
We have the repo location divided into a lot of directories,
what is the difference between the AC and AD directories in your example above ?
I have to ask about this question. Monday I will have more information.
Thank you very much.
