    SuSE 12 offline patch catalog

      Happy new year!!


      We have a SuSE 12 SP3 server with SMT configured to download the rpms updated in a directory (for example /updates). This rpms are downloaded by SMT directly no by TrueSight Server Automation.


      We want to use this directory (/updates) to do a SUSE 12 SP3 patch catalog in offline mode.


      If we put the directory /updates in the payload source location field we get the error:


      Error while updating metadata, Error SuSEReportDB.db not found at payload source location, please run the latest offline downloader again and update the catalog.


      Is it necessary to execute the suse_downloader.sh with createreport option?


      Could you help me with this please? I don't understand how works offline mode.


      Thank you very much.


      Best regards.
