    This update for the SUSE Lifecycle Management Server 1.2
    provides the following changes:

    743589 Corrected behaviour of script slms-purge

    * The script slms purge --node nocontact with --date
    should delete nodes which doesn't contact SLMS after but
    instead it remove all nodes which is registered before . It
    can cause severe data lose for customers, as already

    Enterprise 11-SP2.

    749598 Appliances fails to register after update

    the external part of rails app controller caused a server
    error during register process of customers' appliances.

    749717 Changed owvership of overlay files archives

    * Fixed problem with permissions in
    slms/webapp/lib/overlay_files_pack.rb where the new
    directory created via extract of tar archive from SUSE
    Studio kept the original permissions which was unacceptable
    in case the expected owner was root.

    appliance could not be removed completely from SLMS after
    it has been downgraded to a previous version, which blocked

    lower number. This patch includes removal of all records
    from db and file system from any release and update
    packages and patches when a appliance version is being

    750670 Added UI elements to customer modification

    * Adds options for removing testing customers
    completely and for switching the status of the customer
    between 'active' and 'inactive'. These options were missing
    in the recent releases.

    752093 Errors in web server SSL configuration

    * New update package modified apache1 configuration
    files by removing customers' own certificates and put the
    default SLMS certificate in place. Resolved by splitting
    Apache configuration and including new configuration file
