About SUSE Manager Proxy 4.1

SUSE Manager Proxy provides mirroring proxy support for large and distributed environments.

Operation of the proxy is completely transparent. The SUSE Manager Proxy looks like a managed client to SUSE Manager Server, and like a server to the managed clients. Managed clients talk to the proxy only, and the proxy in turn communicates to the SUSE Manager Server.

All software packages that pass the SUSE Manager Proxy are cached and subsequent client requests for these packages are resolved from the cache.

System Requirements

SUSE Manager Proxy is available for x86_64 architecture only. We recommend you have at least 8 GB main memory, and approximately 50 GB of disk space per distribution or channel.

Consider additional disk space required for storing images for retail terminals.

For more details on system requirements, see the Installation Guide on

SUSE Manager Proxy Distribution

SUSE Manager Proxy 4.1 is provided through SUSE Customer Center and can be installed with the unified installer for SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP2. No separate SUSE Linux Enterprise subscription is required.

Installation and Setup

Installation of SUSE Manager Proxy 4.1 is done with the SUSE Manager Server 4.1 Web interface.

For more details on installing and configuring SUSE Manager Proxy 4.1, see the Installation Guide on

Upgrade from Version 4.0

To upgrade an existing SUSE Manager Proxy 4.0 system to SUSE Manager Proxy 4.1, you can do an in-place upgrade, or you can set up a new system to replace the old one.

For more information about upgrading, see the Upgrade Guide on

Upgrade from Version 3.2

To upgrade an existing SUSE Manager Proxy 3.2 system to SUSE Manager Proxy 4.1, you can do an in-place upgrade, or you can set up a new system to replace the old one.

SUSE Manager Server Versions

SUSE Manager Proxy 4.1 works only with SUSE Manager 4.1 Server.

SUSE Manager Server 4.1 works with SUSE Manager Proxy 4.0 and later.

The combination of SUSE Manager 4.1 Server with SUSE Manager 3.2 Proxy or SUSE Manager 3.2 Retail Branch Server is not supported.

Major changes since SUSE Manager Proxy 4.1 GA

Features and changes

Version 4.1.10

Bugfix release.

Version 4.1.9

Bugfix release.

Version 4.1.8

This is a bugfix release which also introduces several features, backported from SUSE Manager 4.2.

Salt 3002

Salt has been upgraded to upstream version 3002, plus a number of patches, backports and enhancements by SUSE, for the SUSE Manager Server, Proxy and Client Tools (where the client operating system supports Python 3.5+; otherwise Salt 3000 or 2016.11 are used).

Salt 3002 only works with Python 3.5+, therefore:

  • Salt 3002 is only available on SLE 15, RHEL 8 (and clones: CentOS, Oracle Linux and SLES Expanded Support), Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04, and Debian 10. Only a Python 3 version is provided.

  • Salt 3000 is still the version of Salt for SLE 12, RHEL 7 (and clones: CenOS, Oracle Linux and SLES Expanded Support) and Debian 9. Only a Python 2 version is provided. SLE 12 additionally provides a Python 3 version.

  • Salt 2016.11 is still the version of Salt for SLE 11 SP4. Only a Python 2 version is provided.

We intend to regularly upgrade Salt to more recent versions, including those which are still on Salt 3000.

For more details about changes in your manually-created Salt states, see the Salt 3001 and Salt 3002 upstream release notes.

Version 4.1.7

Bugfix release

New products enabled
  • MicroFocus Open Enterprise Server 2018 SP3

Reactivation keys in bootstrap scripts

Bootstrap scripts can include an activation key to directly assign software channels, configuration channels, entitlements, etc to a system while registering.

Reactivation keys can be used to re-register a previously registered client and regain all SUSE Manager settings. This is useful for cases such as moving clients from directly registered to the SUSE Manager Server, to registered to a SUSE Manager Proxy (or Retail Branch Server), or when reinstalling, or in several other cases.

SUSE Manager now supports the combination of reactivation keys and bootstrap scripts: you can specify a reactivation key in the bootstrap script to re-register systems. For example, this helps if your SUSE Manager Server has too many clients directly attached and you want to bulk move them to a SUSE Manager Proxy (or Retail Branch Server).

Version 4.1.6

Enable SAN SSL certificates

Subject Alternative Name (SAN) is an extension to X.509 that allows various values to be associated with a security certificate using a subjectAltName field. This is commonly used to generate SSL certificates that protect multiple domains with a single certificate.

Since this kind of certificates are becoming popular amongst users with their own Certificate Authority, we have implemented support.


Fixes for Salt security issues

You should patch all your SUSE Manager Server, Proxy, Retail Branch Server, and Salt minions as soon as possible.

Version 4.1.5

Bugfix release

Fixes for Salt security issues

You should patch all your SUSE Manager Server, Proxy, Retail Branch Server, and Salt minions as soon as possible.

Version 4.1.4

Bugfix release

Version 4.1.3

Recent Salt CVEs remediation

This release fixes CVE-2020-16846, CVE-2020-17490 and CVE-2020-25592. You should patch all your SUSE Manager Server, Proxy, Retail Branch Server and Salt minions as soon as possible.

DNSSEC enabled by default by bind update

With the update of ISC bind to version 9.16.6 on SLES 15 SP1 and SP2, DNSSEC is now enabled by default, which may cause DNS resolution to fail unless there are fallback DNS servers.

The Retail Branch Server formula has been modified to disable DNSSEC, and will be updated to support DNSSEC in a future release of SUSE Manager. For existing Retail Branch Servers, you can disable DNSSEC to retain the same behaviour ISC bind showed until version 9.11.2. To do that, edit /etc/bind and set:

dnssec-enable no; dnssec-validation no;

Major Changes Since SUSE Manager Proxy 4.0

New products enabled

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 12 SP5

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP2 family

  • openSUSE Leap 15.2

  • MicroFocus Open Enterprise Server 2018 SP2

  • CentOS 6, 7, and 8

  • Oracle Linux 6, 7 and 8

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS


Starting with SUSE Manager 4.1, CentOS is supported as a client and shows in the product tree in the WebUI.

If you were using CentOS via spacewalk-common-channels, you will need to delete your existing channels, synchronize the channel information from SCC, and reassign the channels to the clients.

Oracle Linux

Starting with SUSE Manager 4.1, Oracle Linux is supported as a client and shows in the product tree in the WebUI.

Third-party GPG keys now included

Enabling verification of non-SUSE product metadata used to require manual acceptance, and sometimes even manual installation, of the third-party keys for products available from the product tree. Alternatively, an option to not verify the GPG key signature was there.

In addition to SUSE’s, SUSE Manager 4.1 now includes the GPG keys used to sign packages and/or metadata by other vendors whose products are available in the product tree in the WebUI:

  • openSUSE

  • CentOS

  • Oracle Linux

  • Ubuntu

  • MicroFocus Open Enterprise Server

Manual acceptance of those keys is no longer required for GPG signature verification for those products to work.

Manual acceptance of GPG keys for any other product or repository is still required for security reasons.

Proxy visibility in Systems Overview

SUSE Manager Proxy nodes are now included in the Systems Overview page, with system type "Proxy".

Salt 3000

Salt has been upgraded to the 3000 release for the SUSE Manager Server, Proxy, and Client Tools. As part of this upgrade, the cryptography is now managed by the Python-M2Crypto library (which is itself based on the well-known OpenSSL).

We intend to regularly upgrade Salt to more recent versions.

For more detail about changes in your manually-created Salt states, see the Salt upstream release notes 3000

Content Lifecycle Management filters for AppStreams

RHEL, SLES ES, CentOS and Oracle Linux 8 appstreams can now be mixed and converted to flat repositories using a new type of CLM filter.

New documentation guides

Two new books have been added to the SUSE Manager 4.1 documentation:

  • Large Deployments Guide. Everything related to architecture and configuration for large (thousands of clients) deployments is contained in this guide. It contains all the documentation for the SUSE Manager Hub component. Some parts of the Salt guide that dealt with parameter tuning for large deployments have now been moved here too.

  • Public Cloud QuickStart Guide. This new guide shows you the fastest way to get SUSE Manager up and running in a public cloud. It includes instructions for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Engine.


SLES 15 SP2 JeOS as a Base System

The SUSE Manager 4.1 Proxy and Retail Branch Server can now be installed on top of SLES 15 SP2 JeOS edition.

SUSE Manager for Retail

SLEPOS 15 SP2 clients

Pre-defined templates for SLEPOS 15 SP2 are now provided. SLEPOS 15 SP2 is supported for 7.5 years since the release date.

Small stores

Where a dedicated SUSE Manager Server or SUSE Manager Retail Branch Server is not feasible, it is now possible to use a Retail Branch Server running in a remote datacenter or public cloud.

Thanks to HTTP booting instead of PXE, branch servers no longer need to be on same physical network as the terminals.

EFI HTTP booting

The DHCP, branch network, and PXE formulas have been updated to support booting EFI terminals (systems) using HTTP in addition to TFTP.

Base System Upgrade

The base system was upgraded to SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP2.

Known issues

Proxy password

Do not use the '@' character in the SUSE Manager Proxy password, as it is not escaped correctly.

Single Sign On, API and CLI tools

Single Sign On can be used to authenticate in the Web UI but not with the API or CLI tools. This will be fixed in a future release of SUSE Manager.
