On a test device that has been patched up to SP2, SPident still reports this:

dss-cs99la03:/var/opt/novell/log # SPident

CONCLUSION: System is NOT up-to-date!
found SLE-10-i386 + "online updates"
expected SLE-10-i386-SP2

SuSE-release thinks I'm on SP1, so it's all out of whack.

dss-cs99la03:/var/opt/novell/log # cat /etc/SuSE-release
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (i586)
VERSION = 10
PATCHLEVEL = 1

How is this all determined by SLES?
