Some of you have discovered a bit of a problem with SUSE SLES 8. It seems that when you try to authenticate through YaST2 for an online update, you get the following error message:
"Authorization failed. Check the registration data."

Here's the problem. Although the registration data asks for a Code, entering in the registration code for the product will fail.

Here's the workaround: Enter in the portal username in the field where it asks for the registration code.
