Disclaimer : The list above does not pretend to be a full list of down-loadable software as has been released for the OES11 platform. For that detail, please consult the official Novell download site.

Additional software may have been released, but not be listed here once it is considered to be beyond the scope of what this document tries to provide, being an overview of the bugs fixed with the various patch releases that have been released for OES11.


For the readers convenience, below each released patch, you will find an overview of the bugs that are fixed in that patch for OES11, and if it is known, a link to the TID that belongs to that bug as well

I tried to be as complete as possible by also adding the same list of patches and bug fixes for other the released iPrint and eDir patches, and have verified accurateness of the same with the respective team members.

  • OES-build-key update for OES11 - 7400

805208 - Extend Novell Bangalore BuildService key expiration date.

  • April 2013 Scheduled Maintenance for OES11 for eDirectory 8.8 SP7 Patch3 - 7310

For an overview of the bugs released with this patch, kindly refer to the documentation as maintained by the eDirectory team :

TID 3426981 - History of Issues Resolved in eDirectory 8.8.x

Note: When applying eDirectory upgrades on servers that have ConsoleOne installed in order to be able and manage GroupWise, it is to be expected that dependency conflicts will be returned. The reason for this as that ConsoleOne shares a number of base-modules with the eDirectory patches.

Please have a look at TID 7010864 for information on how to resolve these issues. (Note that although the specified eDirectory patch in the TID may differ, the same solution should remain applicable).
