Today in "Download Section" ... SLES10sp4 with OES2sp3 ?????

Hi everyone,

I noticed some strange stuff in "download.novell.com"
I was searching some news about possible update, and when I tried to download OES2SP3, he show me 7 files .... just like before

But when I click on the next page, I saw this:

oes2sp3-x86_64-CD1.iso 678.9 MB (711909376) download

1 month ago, it was the SLES10SP3 ISO file, not tje SP4 !!!!

Can I download SLES10SP4 with OES2SP3 now ?
I think it was unsecure with online update.

Thanks

Interresting observation. I have not heard anything about OEs2SP3 now being supported on SLES10SP4. I will ask Novell about it.

What you're seeing is Novell starting to put the pieces in place before
support for SLES10 SP4 with OES2 SP3 is officially announced.

The OES2 SP3 documentation has also similarly been updated so now all
we're waiting for is the official green light.

HTH.

I've seen that too; seems that with the latest patches, sles10sp4 is supported. An example of the docs is:
