I got 72IR1 HP3 working for a couple of weeks with sles10sp1 i586 and x86_64 architectures. it worked just great... the only change to my zlmmirror has been to add <Target>sles-10-ppc</Target> to the following config file:

<ZLMMirrorConf>
<Session>
<RemoteServer>
<Base>https://nu.novell.com/repo</Base>
<Type>nu</Type>
<User>xxx</User>
<Password>xxx</Password>
</RemoteServer>
<LocalServer>
<Type>zlm</Type>
<User>administrator</User>
<Password>xxx</Password>
</LocalServer>
<Catalog>
<Name>SLES10-SP1-Updates</Name>
<LocalName>SLES10-SP1-Updates</LocalName>
<Folder>ZLM_MIRROR/SLES10-SP1-Updates/</Folder>
<Target>sles-10-i586</Target>
<Target>sles-10-x86_64</Target>
<Target>sles-10-ppc</Target>
</Catalog>
</Session>
</ZLMMirrorConf>

now, every time I run:

# zlmmirror m --force-nevra -c zlm_mirror_sles10.xml

I get the following error:

Catalog "SLES10-SP1-Updates" has 4015 packages to download.

I tried removing <Target>sles-10-ppc</Target> from the file, but i get the same error, just on less number of files.

Anyone got any ideas?

following is a list of rpms i have installed related to zlm if that helps, as far as I can tell, they are all the latest ones.
