Hello - Upgraded SLES11 SP2 to SLES11 SP3 and /etc/SuSE-release

How did you upgrade from SLES11 SP2 to SP3?
Was this server originally installed as SLES11 SP2 or upgraded from an
earlier version of SLES?
Initially had a problem with meta data on the SP3 repositories. Fix
Please explain more about the problem and how you fixed it.
Why these three files?
ran Yast Update - This ran well without errors.
Unsure where to start looking for how to verify PATCHLEVEL and why
/etc/SuSE-release did not get updated!

VERSION = 11

rpm -qa| grep release
Well unsurprising your /etc/SuSE-release is incorrect as that
corresponds with the incorrect sles-release package. Also your
sles-release-DVD package is incorrect though matches SP1 not SP2!
Based on this last bit I’m therefore guessing that your server was at
least originally installed as SLES11 SP1 then upgraded to SP2? If so,
which process did you follow to do that?
What do “zypper lr -u” and “zypper se -st product” report?
