Micro Focus Open Enterprise Server 2015 (OES 2015) Linux Support Pack 1


Micro Focus has released Open Enterprise Server 2015 Support Pack 1 (OES 2015 SP1) on June 14th, 2016.

This is an overview of the patches that have been released for Open Enterprise Server 2015 Support Pack 1 (OES2015 SP1).

Note 1:
See TID 7008280 for a list of patches released for Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES11).
See TID 7010867 for a list of patches released for Open Enterprise Server 11 SP1 (OES11 SP1).
See TID 7014420 for a list of patches released for Open Enterprise Server 11 SP2 (OES11 SP2).
See TID 7016875 for a list of patches released for Open Enterprise Server 2015 (OES2015).

Disclaimer : The list above does not pretend to be a full, and at all times actual, list of down-loadable software as has been released for the OES2015 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 OES 2015 SP1.

Note 2:
Important : Please be aware that OES2015 (SP1) is certified to run on top of SLES 11 SP4 only !!!

Note 3:
Important : With OES2015 SP1, there is no more support for both Archive & Versioning and Quickfinder.!!!
This is covered in the official OES2015 SP1 documentation, but may easily be overlooked.

Upgrading any previous version of Open Enterprise Server running these services, to Open Enterprise Server 2015 SP1will result in breaking that functionality. Upgrading is a point of no return and when the functionality of these products is a requirement,  a dedicated OES11 SP2 or OES11 SP3 server to be (re-)installed entirely for the purpose of running these services.


For the readers convenience, below each released patch, you will find an overview of the bugs that are fixed in that patch for OES2015, 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 released iPrint and eDir patches, and have verified accurateness of the same with the respective team members.
