Packages and Patches Updates

After installed the SLES 11 R2, went to YaST2 → Support → two relevant choices :

1) Novell Customer Center Configuration and

2) Support (floating ring icon)

If I select the Novell Customer Center Configuration--> fill in my registered email --> Browser starts checking the available packages. It then returns message: [B]Software repositories did not to be changed.[/B]

But if I select the Support icon --> Open Novell Support Center --> Novell Patch Finder --> SLED 11 R2 --> It returns [B]a long list of the current patches [/B](Some are mandatory, others recommended).

It looks like there is no package to update, but there are patches available for updates. For such a long list of patches, is there a better and more efficient way for me to update them? (rather than download and update one by one)

There are no differences in the core system between SLES and SLED, just
ask in here if it’s a server specific issue, else either forums but
please don’t multipost the same question :wink:

I’ve answered your query in the SLED forum.
