Hi,
this week I updated two of my SUSE Server 11 to SP2. All the process was correct, until I discovered that I didn't have connection with my SAN disks. We used PowerPath to connect with Clariion Array Storage and the version of the software is not compatible with the kernel 3.0 included in SP2. There is not estimated date to the update of PowerPath software.
Now I need to revert the upgrade or start from the scratch. Can I downgrade SP2 to SP1?
Thanks in advanced

I found a solution to my problem.
Novell Support Team informed me that the update to SP2 can't be reverted. Afortunately, few weeks ago EMC published a new version of PowerPath software compatible with SUSE Enterprise Server 11 SP2. Now we can access to our Storage Array again
