Environment


SUSE Manager 1.7

Situation

After a clean install of SUSE Manager 1.7 only a few channels are showing after syncing with nu.novell.com.  In our case running mgr-ncc-sync -r and mgr-ncc-sync -l returned the following outputs:

susemanager:~ # mgr-ncc-sync -r
Updating Channel Family Information
Downloading Product information...
Found 602 products using 1 mirror credentials.
Downloading Subscription information...
Found 2 subscriptions using 1 mirror credentials.
Updating Upgrade Path Information

susemanager:~ # mgr-ncc-sync -l
Listing channels ...

Status:
- P - channel is installed (provided)
- . - channel is not installed, but is available
- X - channel is not available

Resolution

The mirror credentials were correct and the repositories were available as seen in NCC.  Howerver, in the products purchased drop down box there were only suse-manager and suse-manager proxy. That is why they were the only 2 showing up. Once a license was purchased for SLES, the SLES repositories became available after running mgr-ncc-sync.

Cause

Mirror credentials correctly show the repositores, but with SUSE Manager it filters the products purchased vs products not purchased. Only those that are purchased are mirrorable.
