In Production environment, we having SuSE 10 SP 2,

We are interesting in upgrading this SuSE 10 SP 2 to SuSE 11 SP2
What would be the best possible method to achieve this task?
Do we needs to apply patches sequentially
i.e: SuSE 10 SP3 → SuSE 10 SP4 ->SuSE 11 SP1 → SuSE 11 SP2
else is it possible to use the upgrade option in SuSE 11 SP2 DVD and
perform installation at one go?[/color]
As Willem (magic31) has already said, to get from one SLES version/support
pack to another you have to go via the intermediate versions/support packs.
Unfortunately you missed one step in the sequence you listed above - SLES11
itself (SP0). The correct sequence for you is therefore SLES10 SP2 →
SLES10 SP3 → SLES10 SP4 → SLES11 → SLES11SP1 → SLES11 SP2.
The only alternative to get “directly” from SLES10 SP2 to SLES11 SP2 is to
install a new server as SLES11 SP2 and then migrate configuration/data from
the old SLES10 SP2 server.
