Resolving the problem

Task: BES Relay/Server: Register Download Plug-in for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (Or other site such as Task: BES Relay/Server: Register Download Plug-in for SUSE or Task: BES Relay/Server: Register Download Plug-in for Solaris) should become relevant for the Server.

The Download Plug-in programs are Windows programs for installation on the BES server and must be run to use this functionality and run for each site such as Red Hat, SUSE, Centos and Solaris

Note: For MSP's with multiple customer accounts. They will want to add the Relays to the Linux RPM Site. Each relay will need to run the Task: BES Relay/Server: Register Download Plug-in for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (or other site such as SUSE or Solaris) and register each customer's vendor account and password.
