Hi everyone,

In searching for solutions to some problems with our OES2 SP2 NCS
cluster, i came across this document:


More details here:


My main questions:

1. The patch document states that all OES2 users should apply this
"scheduled maintenance". This seems to be something like a Service Pack
or Hot Patch - why isn't it called one of those things instead of
introducing a new, confusing term for it? I have seen no gossip about a
new patching strategy in Cool Solutions or the forums - is this just bad
patch release co-ordination by Novell?

2. The same versions referred to in the download page seem to be
available in yast online update. Why is this special in that it has a
separate download page? If i patch via yast, am i getting all the right

Thanks in advance,
