Subscription manager for SUSE hosts

Hey team,
Foreman server 3.10 with Katello 4.12 plugin,

Missed packages in the SLES12SP5 ATIX repository:
The installation of subscription-manager requires to install the following packages:

python-M2Crypto, python-dateutil, python-decorator, python-ethtool, python-iniparse, python-syspurpose, subscription-manager, subscription-manager-rhsm, subscription-manager-rhsm-certificates, virt-what

On atix site following packages are missed:
python-M2Crypto, python-dateutil, python-decorator, python-ethtool, python-iniparse, virt-what

We can install from the original SLES repositorie following packages:
python-M2Crypto, python-dateutil, python-decorator, python-ethtool

But packages python-iniparse and virt-what are not available!!

Following the result of the test to install python-iniparse:

Thanks for help!

@Bernhard_Suttner I’m not sure who’d be the best from ATIX to help with this. I know very little about SUSE myself.

This was already discussed here: Subscription-manager on suse

I think it doesn’t make sense to open the same question multiple times.
