SUSE and Micro Focus Baseline ListsMarvin Huffaker2018-01-08T03:58:18-05:00
Major Patches Published Through April 30, 2013. Note: Normally this document would have been released on April 1st and included all patches through March 31st 2013. Because it was delayed by 30 days, we have also included patches released in April since many of them are quite significant.
Our Baseline Document is a compilation of patches that are considered stable and production ready for the current business quarter. This list outlines the major products which fit into our core expertise, primarily in the Data Center. We generally perform a quarterly Baseline process for all of our customers, and ensure that all the updates listed here are applied and functional. This accomplishes the following:
• Implements bug fixes and other defects
• Resolves known security vulnerabilities
• May include feature enhancements
• Keeps systems up to date and easier to support
• Ensure support from vendor if issues arise
The following tables outline the baselines for the major products within our core area of expertise. Red = Changed since last quarterly baseline; Gray Italics = Obsolete Product
** Important Notes about SLES 11 SP2 specific to certain Novell products **
When SLES 11 SP2 was first released, many of the Novell products such as OES11, Datasync Mobility Pack, and ZENworks were not supported on SLES11 SP2. Since then, Novell has released subsequent updates that are certified. Therefore, updates for both the underlying OS and the application/service should be considered when applying baseline updates. We are not aware of any "Current" version products on our list that are not certified on SLES 11 SP2.
Miscellaneous Items and Notes
• BIOS updates, firmware, etc should be applied as recommended by the specific hardware manufacturer. The list is too vast to include here.
• As a rule of thumb, there are usually several post Service Pack patches available. When applying baseline updates, we generally recommend applying those patches that are automatically downloaded either through Microsoft Update manager or Linux's Online Update tool.
• *eDirectory 8.8 patch is somewhat subjective depending on software installed.
For example, on OES2 or OES11, eDirectory should be updated automatically with the OES patches. Other implementations may require manual updates.
