Adding Linux Software Repository for Microsoft Products to SUSE Manager

This document (000019886) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Manager 4.x Server
 

Situation

Customers wishing to add the Linux Software Repository for Microsoft Products to their SUSE Manager instance can use the procedure outlined under Resolution.

The Linux Software Repository for Microsoft Products documentation explains how to configure repositories, but is not entirely clear with regards to configuring SUSE Manager to use the repositories.
 

Resolution

1. Navigate to Software -> Manage -> Channels -> Create Channel

Note:  the GPG Key ID is the last 8 digits of the GPG Key Fingerprint.
Note: Choose the parent Channel carefully so it is a child of an already-subscribed parent channel for the system(s) you wish to subscribe to the MS repository.





2. Navigate to Software -> Manage -> Repositories -> Create Repository (use URL provided below, the URL MS indicates is inaccurate)




3. Navigate to Software -> Manage -> Channels -> Choose MS channel -> Repositories -> Check MS repository checkbox and click Save Repositories.

4. Sync the MS repository by navigating to Software -> Manage -> Channels -> Choose MS channel -> Repositories -> Sync -> Sync Now




4b. Alternately, for those that prefer CLI:
# spacewalk-repo-sync --channel microsoft-sles15

5. Now choose the system(s) you wish to subscribe to the MS channel, and once the repository syncs you can deploy the available MS products using SUSE Manager.
