I went through exactly same way as william1 did. Except I used permanent istead of trial code (I’m installing SLES 4 SAP on PPC64). I can see my system in SCC “Systems” tab as well as my “regcode” in “Subscriptions” ,[/QUOTE]
I will try to help you. For future reference, because your issue is a new one, it is better to begin a new thread. If your issue is similar to one described in another thread, feel free to refer to the existing thread.
[QUOTE] however It tells me that "You are not currently entitled to use the support system. " on a “Support” tab.[/QUOTE]I’m not sure what that means:
It could mean that you don’t have active maintenance (it could have expired)
If your SUSE account was created by someone else, you may not have been given full access to it.
[QUOTE]Am I missing some activations?
When I click on host’s details I can even see some credentials. How can I use them? Is zypper aware of it? If not, how can I pass them to zypper ?[/QUOTE]
To be able to access patches and other updates, a number of things must be in place:
You must have a valid subscription, one that has not expired, and is properly recorded in the Customer Center.
Your system must be properly registered to gain access to the appropriate repositories.
[*]The Customer Center has associated your system with the appropriate repositories.
zypper talks to the Customer Center to determine which repositories you have access to. In addition to applying patches, you can use zypper to manage and display information about the repositories.
If you have tried to re-register your system, refresh your repositories, and still don’t have access to them, the next step is to check the SUSE Knowledge Base.
When I searched for “system registration”, I found these articles which may be helpful as well as many others you may wish to review.
Resetting the SUSE or Novell Customer Center system registration
How to register SLES 12 using the SUSEConnect command line tool
If after reviewing available Knowledge Base articles you still cannot access any repositories there may be some issues with the back end. You may wish to open a Service Request to have SUSE Support help you. Alternatively, you can come back here and provide more specific information about your system and we will try to help. To begin, we would like you to post the output from these commands:
Please let us know how you make out.
