We're using SMT to patch our servers. Everything is fine for the straight SLES servers, but we're encountering a division of responsibilities issue for patching of OES2 servers since we have one group of people that takes care of SLES servers and one group that takes care of Novell products (Netware, OES2).

What I need to know is whether OES2 and SLES need to have patches applied at the same time due to dependencies, or if SLES can be patched without OES2 being patched, or vice-versa.

I'm sorry of this is a stupid question, but I just haven't been able to find the answer.
