SUSE® Studio™ Onsite and the SUSE Lifecycle Management Server connect to the Internet as a default to synchronize to the Novell® Customer Center (NCC). At the Novell Customer Center they access repositories of packages and updates for SUSE Linux Enterprise.

You can use the Subscription Management Tool (SMT) to override the default and do the following:

  • Minimize the bandwidth for downloading packages
  • Prevent SUSE Studio and SUSE Lifecycle Management Server from connecting to the Internet

then there are a few more things to consider during the setup of all components.

This guide explains issues you need to consider during setup if you choose either of these options.

This guide does not replace the installation documentation for the components.

Please read and follow the instructions in the product documentation. The purpose of this guide is to provide additional hints and tips.
