Hi ,
How can i get only the iso image of the SLES SP-2 ( i don't want the OS instead i need the service pack-2 only) ?
I got the below link
http://doc.opensuse.org/products/draft/SLES/SLES-deployment_sd_draft/cha.update.sle.html#sec.update.sle11spx
where 7.5.2. Updating by Booting from an Installation Source says
"Service Pack 2 ISO images can be obtained from http://download.novell.com/."
I have tried but could not get the iso image.

Please provide me with a direct link from where i can download it.

Thanks
Ravi

So you're looking for an ISO of just the updated packages?

If that is the case then I think you've misunderstood the upgrade process.

SUSE (Novell) provide ISOs of complete OS installs so there is one for
SLESn SP2 (you don't say whether you're looking for SLES10 SP2 or SLES11
SP2 ... or even SLES9 SP2) that can be used to upgrade from an earlier
version. Or you can upgrade via the online patch channel.

Here it is (if you have i586):
http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=FkjGyLMMiss~

Following the Upgrading guide
http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7010200
"3) Update by booting from a SLES/SLED 11 SP2 media",
Select "Update an Existing System" instead of "New Installation",
and your SP1 (if you got one installed) will be updated to SP2.
If you have another version, select your option from http://download.novell.com/

LLiner posted the link for the 32-bit version of SLES11 SP2. The 64-bit
version is available @
http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=h0AOp5AT-18~

Perhaps post the output from "cat /etc/*release" so we can see exactly
what you're currently using.
