During registration of Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 via the YaST2 Novell Customer Center, the process aborts with the message

ERROR: "Got the same server response as last time. Aborting"

  2. By updating to the latest Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack

Please note that Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 is no longer maintained. Customers using this version
and experiencing the issue described in this document should update to the very latest service pack level. Please
use the service pack DVDs to patch the system offline. Once this is done, register the system and apply the
