1) are registered against the server and
2) have the smt-client package installed
Update jobs are supposed to install the available patches on the target client(s).
Although an update job completes successfully according to the logs, the kernel updates do not get installed. Other updates do get installed, but since the kernel updates require user interaction (warning that a new kernel is installed - reboot etc.), they get dropped by the update process.
However the smt-client package must be updated to version 0.0.13-0.1.1 in order for it to adopt this new parameter. This package is also available in the update repositories for SLED/S 11.
