SLES 10 "Current Version"

I am getting ready to start testing for upgrading my GroupWise 8.0.2 HP2 system to GroupWise 2012 on my SLES 10 SP3/ OES2 SP3 system. When looking at the release notes I see that it says that GW2012 requires the "current version" of SLES 10. My Novell support partner has been telling me not to apply SP4 to my SLES 10 system since we created the systems last year. Which SP is considered the "Current Version" for the sake of upgrading to GroupWise 2012 on a SLES 10 system? Thanks!

Re: SLES 10 "Current Version"

ummm... First of all I'm no expert...

I went from NW6.5 + GW7 to OES 11 SP1 & GW2012 at the same-time at the
weekend.
no in between patches

Apart from document libraries (GW DMS) everything went smoothly

Attached a OES 11 Server to NW Server Tree
Shutdown GW
dbcopied GW files with migration option (-m switch)
copied all files using rsync (use CP if you want)
Disconnected the NW Server (so if things don't goto plan....)
made my new OES server the Master for edir tree
installed GW
Using consoleone on the OES server connected to - domain master db file
changed paths for PO & Domain, updated IP addresses & Syncronised to tree
Ran All maintenance tasks for Domain and PO
Loaded PO - checked client can connect
shutdown Groupwise
loaded groupwise normally
made sure DB had upgraded to 12
ran through db maintenance tasks just for the heck of it
In consoleone deleted old GWIA and Webaccess and installed GW2012 GWIA and
Webaccess
Tested

FYI - the issue with DMS was my doing... I renamed the actual folder name to
harmonise the names
I think that was my mistake... This was technically a trial run (although it
wasn't meant to be!!) and will be repeating this at the weekend for real.

when I do anythings like this... I always use a Mirror copy of the Server or
copy Tree and data to work with.

Like I said I'm no expert...

For OES 2, the latest release is SLES 10 SP4 + OES 2 SP3.
