Grand Evening Donald,

SAG does not have SMT/RMT or SUSE Manager, but if they can help with the --cleanup issue please give a few words...

Isn’t this what SMT/RMT or SUSE Manager can help with?

There are quite a number of "mothers". We do run systemctl mask packagekit.service on the mothers to stop automatic updates. If the clone is not registered does this stop "zypper in some-need-function" running ?

Thoughts for SLES15 SP-1 having an option to allow UUDI as the handshake so that machines that do provide it are not pegged down to the lowest common method of the simple machines?
