Spacewalk and SLES 11 mirrors

Hello all,

I am trying to get my spacewalk server to sync up to the official sles mirrors from the SCC with no luck.

Some background information:
My Spacewalk server is a RHEL 6 machine and I have configured mrepo so that I am able to download all the RHEL 5 and RHEL 6 patches to a local repository. I have roughly 52 SuSE Enterprise Linux 11 SP3 clients merged into my spacewalk environment but I cannot get mrepo or spacewalk to download the sles patches.

I do not know how to use mrepo for SLES patches (I do not even know if it is possible to generate a sles system ID from a Red Hat EL server).

I do have SuSE credentials and I attempted to use the following URL for patch downloads with no luck:
https://<my user>:<mypassword>$RCE/SLES11-SP3-Pool/sle-11-x86_64/

Searching google popped up few results with some that pointed to using python-urlgrabber however I have no experience with that.

Has anyone been able to download SLES 11 SP3 patches to a Spacewalk server hosted on a RHEL 6 machine before? (I would assume so, and that I am just too inexperienced with Spacewalk and missing some small detail)
