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.


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.
