How to find Service Pack level for SLES 10
 
Hello All,
We have a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.
I would like to know Service Pack Level of it.
I browsed online and used few commands, but got the conflicting results.

/> cat /etc/SuSE-release
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86_64)
VERSION = 10
PATCHLEVEL = 4

/> cat /etc/issue

Welcome to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP4 (x86_64) - Kernel \r (\l).

/> SPident

CONCLUSION: System is NOT up-to-date!
found SLE-10-x86_64-SP1 + "online updates"
expected SLE-10-x86_64-SP4


So my questions are
1. Is my Server is at Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 4
2. Does PATCHLEVEL mean Service Pack Level.

I've had to deal with this before, and it's a little confusing. But I usually go with what SPIdent says. If you go into YAST and run online updates, is everything updated?

As far as i know SP 4 is the very last in the old SELS 10 series

Time to contact novell sales and buy SELS 11

Please make me figure out Service Pack Level
 
I can't upgrade to SLES 11 right now.
Actually I am trying to install a software which supports SLES 10 SP1.

So I need to figure out the Service Pack Level.
Guys...Please make me figure out Service Pack Level

you might want to see the novell sels10 page
https://www.suse.com/documentation/sles10/
from the novell/suse install "service pack" page
https://www.suse.com/documentation/s.../cha_inst.html

you are on "no service pack"

so you need to install
Service pack 1
then
Service pack 2
then
Service pack 3
then
Service pack 4


however SELS 10 came out in "Initial release, 2006-06-17"
Quote:


Initial release, 2006-06-17
SP1, 2007-06-18
SP2, 2008-05-19
SP3, 2009-10-12
SP4, 2011-04-12
and SELS sp 4 is supported until July 2016

If I am on "no pack".
Why I am getting these results saying SP1 or SP4.

I am confused.

This is the output I got on my server.
