Mobility Pack 1.25 install on OES 11 SP1 - Python depends

I have a brand new OES 11 SP1 installation to which I am trying to add Mobility Pack 1.25. I am running in to all kinds of python dependency failures. Can anyone shed some light on this?

I have been running all around collecting RPMs to add the missing dependencies. Currently, I am stuck on python-ldap; but I'm not too confident in gathering RMS from all over the internet.

Whilst OES11 SP1 installs on top of SLES11 SP2 I don't believe Data
Synchronizer is supported on OES11 SP1 - the Data Synchronizer Server
Requirements listed in section 1.3.1 of the Mobility Pack Install Guide[1]
only include SLES11 SP2 and not OES11 SP1 as I would expect if the latter
was supported.

You should use a plain old SLES11SP2 box for 1.2.5. I suppose the docs should explicitly say only SLES but you'll notice they don't mention OES. Hopefully your OES server isn't too b0rked at this point. 🙂

It would be nice to get some official word that this isn't supported on OES. I've got a support case open, and I'll post the results. (It would be even nicer if this could be fixed, since we bought the OES server for DataSync and iFolder)!

Apparently, it works fine on OES. My repositories were all screwed up for some reason and they weren't listing the packages I needed. I downloaded an ISO and added it as a repository and I was able to complete the install.

It might work fine but after checking with Novell it definitely isn't
supported. I've asked if they can publish a TID to that effect but
they're looking at how best to communicate this non-supported environment.

Please see TID 7012004[1] which has now been published.
