Since the docs aren't updated yet for ZLM/OES2 patching, can someone clarify for me?

It sounded like there's two diff. options for Linux patching:

a) Configuration -> Patch Subscription Credentials -> SUSE Network Credentials
b) Configuration -> Subscription Download Options -> check the box for Linux

What's the difference between the two?

Also, does item "a" use the mirror credentials from Novell, and if so, what can it mirror (anything, like OES2?)

Right now, we have an SMT server using mirror credentials to download the catalogs we manually subscribe to on the SMT and then of course, we have to manually patch the servers.
