Suse Studio overlay files are given incorrect ownership when updated with patches via SLMS

This document (7010284) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Studio Onsite 1.2
SUSE Lifecycle Management Server 1.2


Suse Studio doesn't specify permission for directories, so if directory doesn't
exists yet on appliance or it is empty, then it is written with tar metadata.
Tar is created with default options so default user and group is slms and www.
This user and group doesn't exists on target machine, so tar choose the closest


Please contact Novell Technical Support for a patch that has changed the default ownership from smls:www to root:root to resolve this issue.
