You have decided to use more than one staging group, using the following commands in your SMT server:
smt-staging creategroup GROUP-AA TEST-AA PROD-AA
smt-staging createrepo --group TEST-AA --testing
smt-staging createrepo --group PROD-AA --production

The exit of the command:
smt-staging listgroups
might look like this:

List of available Staging Groups
| ID | Name      | Testing Directory Name | Production Directory Name |
|  1 | default   | testing                |                        |
|  2 | GROUP-AA  | TEST-AA                | PROD-AA                |

You want to use any of the directories under the different groups, and not just with the default group.



Modifying the "register" line in the /etc/suseRegister.conf file (in the server you want to register) to:
register = command=register&namespace=testing
register = command=register&namespace=PROD-AA
register = command=register&namespace=TEST-AA

will allow you to work with any of the desided options.
