'createrepo' not found on SLES 10.3

Hello All,

I'm trying to configure a SLES 10.3 machine as our Zypper server. I created the zypper directories with all the RPMs, made the directory structure accessible over HTTP but I'm stuck at the final stage: createrepo.

Looks like 'createrepo' is not present on this version Smilie

Could someone please throw some light here? Double-TABing show below commands/executables are present but I don't think any of them are of use to me Smilie

itc-zypper:~ # create
create-branching-keyboard  create_directory.yast      create_package_descr       create_sha1sum   
create-cracklib-dict       create_md5sums      create_sha1sums            createpatch

# 2  
zypper install createrepo

Did you try that? It's supposed to be there for 10 SP3
# 3  
No.. it isn't there Smilie
Also, the machine is SLES 11.3 (not 10.3 as wrongly mentioned by me). This is the last
step and I'm blocked here. I had configured this machine's HTTP so that I can use this as a Repo server for other SLES clients.

createrepo is a noarch package on DVD1 of the SDK, You need to add the SDK to your repos to be searched.
