Troubleshooting Bootstrap Repository for End-of-Life Products
When supported products are synchronized, bootstrap repositories are automatically created and regenerated on the SUSE Manager Server. When a product reaches end-of-life and becomes unsupported, bootstrap repositories must be created manually if you want to continue using the product.
For more information about bootstrap repositories, see Bootstrap Repository.
At the command prompt on the SUSE Manager Server, as root, list the available unsupported bootstrap repositories with the
--forceoption, for example:
mgr-create-bootstrap-repo --list --force 1. SLE-12-SP2-x86_64 2. SLE-12-SP3-x86_64
Create the bootstrap repository, using the appropriate repository name as the product label:
mgr-create-bootstrap-repo --create SLE-12-SP2-x86_64 --force
If you do not want to create bootstrap repositories manually, you can check whether LTSS is available for the product and bootstrap repository you need.
