Another Update Question

Turns out, the server DVD drive is not reading my OES SP2 w/SLES11 SP3 disc. I verified the burned disc is readable on other PC's. So, can i update using the ISO that i downloaded? Yast->add-on products, maybe?

I'm sorry but upgrading from an ISO is not supported - the
supported options are offline using physical media[1] (you need
to be able to boot the server from the media) or online via patch
channel using YaST wagon or zypper[2].

HTH.

Maybe you can get a slimline USB DVD writer? Most physical servers I manage don't have a DVD drive, just plug in the USB and boot from that.

I did do that but it hangs on "loading ... drivers". I guess we will either retire this server or get a new DVD drive
