SUSE Manager 1.2


The SUSE Manager is configured with YaST to use an HTTP proxy. When syncing repositories with

spacewalk-repo-sync --channel

it properly syncs the channels. However, when using


the sync fails.


spacewalk-repo-sync uses the proxy settings that are configured with YaST. mgr-ncc-sync instead is not aware of that. The HTTP proxy has to be put in the SUSE Manager web interface as well. This can be found under Admin -> SUSE Manager Configuration.
