    broken dependencies shown when checking for online updates <---- screenshot of error in online update

    I had issues setting up SMT on my servers and getting some of them to update OES2 SP3 properly. Some didn't have the OES2-Updates or OES2-Pool categories enabled, so i used a work around I found on the forum to try to fix that.

    This is what i used:

    1) Add the OES2 SP3 ISO into Yast.

    Download the OES2 SP3 ISO
    In Yast - Software - Installation Sources update the "Open Enterprise Server 2 SP2" with the new ISO, this should change it to "Open Enterprise Server 2 SP3"
    Make sure you check sync with ZEnworks

    2) Clean your product list.

    run /usr/lib64/zmd/query-pool products

    It should look something like this (but won't):


    Note the i at the start to show it's installed i.e. if this i is missing it's not installed.

    Remove all other products you don't need starting with the Migration Product:

    zypper rm -type=product Novell-Open-Enterprise-Server-SP3-migration

    You will get some conflict errors with the installed move-to-oes2-sp3-xxx packages, chose to delete them

    Now install the OES2 SP3 Product.

    zypper install --type=product OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP3

    This should also delete OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP2, if not run:

    zypper rm -type=product OPEN_ENTERPRISE_SERVER_SP2

    3) Get the update repositories registered


    rug ca should now show the OES2 SP3 update channel.

    Now update:

    rug up.

    Now my OES2 is showing that its running 20606.01 like the others, but when I do a check for updates, the above is shown. If I accept, it checks dependencies and then closes. I re-open online updates to find that its still there.

    Any idea how to fix this issue?

    here's the output of cat /etc/*release

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 10
    Novell Open Enterprise Server 2.0.3 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 2.0.3
