Any GroupWise 2014-related reason to avoid SUSE SP4?

The servers hosting my web access and mobility components are running SUSE11 SP3, not OES 11.
SUSE's updater is encouraging me to move to SP4 on those servers.
Are there any known reasons to not update?

OES11 has a patch specifically to prevent the underlying SUSE from updating.
I can't think of any reason why updating would be an issue for GW, but I figured I'd ask.

Have not tried it my self but according to the docs SLES11 + Latest Service Pack is supported: https://www.novell.com/documentation/groupwise2014/gw2014_guide_install/data/inst_req_admin_hardware_os.html

This is due to how tightly coupled OES is with SLES. If the past is any
indication, there will either be another OES SP to match the SLES one
or the current level will have some minor patches applied to deal with
any issues found.
GroupWise isn't so tied to its host OS and is much less picky, so
should be good to go as per Thomas
