3.1 Mirroring Credentials

Before you create a local mirror of the repositories, you need appropriate organization credentials. You can obtain the credentials from SUSE Customer Center.

To get the credentials from SUSE Customer Center, follow these steps:

  1. Visit SUSE Customer Center at http://scc.suse.com and log in.

  2. If you are member of multiple organizations, chose the organization you want to work with from the drop-down box in the top-right corner.

  3. Click Organization in the top menu.

  4. Switch to the Organizational credentials section.

  5. To see the password, click Show password.

The obtained credentials should be set with the YaST SMT Server Configuration module or added directly to the /etc/smt.conf file. For more information about the /etc/smt.conf file, see Section 7.2.1, /etc/smt.conf.

To request a merge of credentials, the EMEA-based customers (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) are advised to send an e-mail to with the applicable customer and site IDs. The EMEA PIC team will verify the records. The contact for NALAAP (North America, Latin America, and Asia Pacific) is .
