Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 2


After installing the move-to-oes2-sp2, the server would display the following message on reboot:
"The module channel-upgrade-oes does not work."  (Back, Retry, Quit, Next)


Analyzing the /var/log/YaST2/y2log file, indicated that the yast2-novell-afp and yast2-novell-cifs were not installed on the system.  The issue can be resolved by re-installing the following rpm's; yast2-novell-afp and yast2-novell-cifs.  It maybe necessary to install all yast2-novell* modules. After installing (those packages were the only ones not installed), rebooted the server and channel upgrade script run, followed by OES post-update config script.  Rebooted and verified that the error did not show up.
