2.0 Micro Focus SMT Installation

Micro Focus SMT is an add-on product for Open Enterprise Server 2018 SP2, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP4, and SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP5 systems. You can either install the Micro Focus SMT add-on together with your base system during the initial installation process, or on top of an already-installed base system at any later time. Micro Focus SMT can be obtained free of charge from Micro Focus Downloads.

NOTE: Installation Scope

SMT is a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MariaDB, PHP) based application. During the installation, Apache and MySQL will automatically be installed if missing.


  • The Subscription Management Tool (SMT) released by SUSE and the Micro Focus Subscription Management Tool (Micro Focus SMT) released by Micro Focus cannot co-exist on the same server.

  • During installation of Micro Focus SMT, ensure that the base media or pool channel is available as the dependent packages will be pulled from them. For example, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP4 base media or SLES12-SP4-Pool on SLES 12 SP4.
