After doing an initial install of NOWS SBE 2.5, you notice that there are updates in the channel, and among them are a move-to-SLES10sp3 and a move-to-OES2sp2 patch.  Which do you choose?


This is an issue that plagues non-NOWS SBE implementations of OES2 as well, and documentation there specifically states that under no circumstances should you select the move-to-SLES10sp3 patch.

If you select the move-to-SLES10sp3 patch without the accompanying move-to-OES2sp2 patch, it will not include the OES specific kernel modules such as those necessary for NSS.  This will break your server to the point where you will not be able to use many of the features you installed OES for.

The move-to-OES2sp2 patch has code written within to include the move-to-SLES10sp3 patch and the accompanying patches that it needs from there.  You do not need/want to select move-to-SLES10sp3 patch separately.
