SLES 12 sp3 eDirectory 9.1.1

I'm only patching SLES 12 sp3 not eDirectory.

Taking over a server and it is way behind on patches. At least seven kernels behind.

If I patch via Yast Online Update should I simply check all "Needed Patches" and install those. Or change the drop down to "All Patches" and install everything.

If I recall, in the past, if I selected only certain patches I ran in to dependencies.

Appreciate advice.

Thank you.

Hi
In the first instance I would select Needed Patches, if that looks suspect, move to the command line and zypper...



zypper -vvv ref
zypper -vvv up --no-recommends -t patch

The -vvv will add some verbosity to see what it's doing...
