You can create a clone of the SUSE Expanded Support channels for RHEL as per the RHEL update level, for example RHEL 5.8 with the spacewalk-create-channel utility.

First you need to install the spacewalk-remote-utils package which is in the SLES11-SP2-SUSE-Manager-Tools channels. Here we will install it locally on the SUSE Manager server but you can install and use it on a remote server. Make sure that the channel SLES11-SP2-SUSE-Manager-Tools is enabled :

  1. zypper mr -e SLES11-SP2-SUSE-Manager-Tools

Install :

  1. zypper install spacewalk-remote-utils

Then you can use the spacewalk-create-channel command :

  1. spacewalk-create-channel --user=Admin --server=localhost --sourceChannel=res5-x86_64 --version=5 --update=u8 --release=Server --arch=x86_64 --destChannel=rhel-5.8-x86_64 --clone

Password: Trying with source channel: res5-x86_64 Reusing rhel-5.8-x86_64 as destination channel 3585 packages in source file to push. Pushing 1667 packages, please wait. Successfully pushed 1667 packages out of 3585
