We have a few SLES 11.4 servers that doesn't have internet connection nor connection to the repositories.

But these machines need updates too.

Usually we just use zypper to update, that fetches what is needed, installs them.

Local repo isn't a solution too..

Q: how do we know what package needs to be updated? where can we get those packages (automatically)?

We can copy to/from the servers with sftp, and have root, at least that is available :)

    Servers not having by policy a direct internet connection, does not have to mean not having access to repositories. – Rui F Ribeiro Nov 22 '16 at 13:10
