I have got a trial license for our SLES 11 sp2.
With Yast I did install the latest updates and now I need to update the other servers (which are not connected to the internet).
How would I accomplish this?

Since couple of days sp4 has came out.
I want to update all the servers to sp4, would this be advisable?
Most are production servers, I am afraid of the impact.
I have just one server connected to the internet and can use that to get the updates, the of the servers have no internet connection.
Thx.

You could set up SMT for the servers that are not connected to the internet: https://www.suse.com/documentation/smt11/book_yep/data/book_yep.html
