[sle-beta] SUSEConnect --rollback

It's a little Brighter,

So  SUSEConnect --rollback is not the way to go. I had been down the path back in early SLES12 so not surprised, but better to try than not try.

So Thorsten what are your thoughts on my solution, the 2nd part of the question. We can very easy and quickly put the virtual machine back to SLES12 SP-3 status from in my case a VMware snap shot. But we have a SCC that reflects the migrated state.

<< Question: should the SUSEConnect --rollback command put the SCC back to SLES12 SP-3 after a UPDATE (Migration), if so then I'll create a bug report, if not then how does one get the SCC back in-sync with the virtual machine when it's reloaded with the SLES12 SP-23 snap shot. I did suggest another SCC command which loads the SCC from the machines /etc/zypp area, which would reflect the correct environment, but --rollback was suggested. >>

The /etc/zypp area seems to have the information, maybe not all ? so a SUSEConnect --sync-scc could be a quick and simple way of bringing the status of the machine and SCC together.  We will have to be doing this often, for each Beta in SLES15 and the SLES releases. At the moment one has to run a series of commands when the data needed I expect is there and just has to be written to the SCC....

I suggest to start reading out SLES12 SP3 documentation about rollback:

Nothing has changed there.
