This document (7001502) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Although the installation sources are existant on the NFS server, Yast2 Online Update was failing, complaining that packages are not found even though the packages were there at the right path.
# cd /susesoftware/sles10/64bit/DVD/SP2/CD1/
# ln -s patches/repodata/ ./
- There is no need to create the link /susesoftware/sles10/64bit/DVD/SP2/CD1/patches/suse -> ../suse.
- On the Clients, while specifying the "Installation Source" ( YaST -> Software -> Installation Source), give "Path to Directory" = /susesoftware/sles10/64bit/DVD/SP2/CD1/
- Restart the update.
