SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11
Subscription Management Tool (SMT) for SUSE Linux Enterprise 11


SMT server is configured to use an HTTP proxy and running the command smt-ncc-sync terminates with the following error message:

Exiting subroutine via last at
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/SMT/ line 1313


Missing http protocol definition in /etc/smt.conf file. The smt.conf file had the following incorrect entries:

HTTPProxy =
HTTPSProxy =

These proxy entries need to be changed by adding http:// as follows:

HTTPProxy =
HTTPSProxy =

Once the changes have been made to the smt.conf file, restart the SMT service with rcsmt restart and issue the command smt-ncc-sync.
