SLES 10 update - Service Pack 1

Keep in mind, SLES 10 GA and SLES 10 SP1 are treated as separated products. We need to subscribe to new installation and update sources and repeat the previous steps with some little additions. My installation source of SLES 10 SP1 is part of update server. The update server is synchronized from official Novell update server with YUP proxy.
  1. Subscribe to SLES 10 SP1 installation and update source, then subscribe to catalogs

  4. Finally, move the system to SP1 version

The result is we have system with SLES 10 SP1 and all required updates applied. It is recommended to reboot such system to apply all included changes (especially new kernel).
