Hi all,

We have couple of Linux servers running SLES 11 SP1 and it appears that there was no maintenance installed.
I am asked to patch the server with available security updates , but unable to locate SLES SP1 from https://download.suse.com/.
Also am instructed not to upgrade the SP version without installing the available security patches on SP1.

Please help me to locate the available security patches (No ISO available with my organization)

You need to register the servers to recieve patches if they even are available anymore since SLE11SP1 support ended 31 Aug 2012. Best would be to upgrade to SP2->SP3->SP4 using ISO: https://www.suse.com/documentation/sles11/book_sle_deployment/data/sec_update_proc_prep_paths.html & https://download.suse.com/index.jsp?product_id=&search=Search&families=2658&version=&date_range=&date_start=17+May+2018&date_end=17+May+2018&keywords=&sort_by=&results_per_page=

According to
https://download.suse.com/patch/finder/#bu=suse&familyId=7261&productId=26322&xf=7261
patches for SLES11 SP1 should still be available but you need
maintenance to access them - this is true whether downloading
individually or on server through online patch channels.

Since SLES11 SP1 is no longer supported it's a moot point whether you
follow supported advice to first apply all available updates to SLES11
SP1 before upgrading to SLES11 SP2 but if they're available then I would.

Note you will need active maintenance to access updates for any release
of SLES (still supported by SUSE).

HTH.
