Firstly please can you include the complete SLES versions when posting
as it can get a bit confusing when you leave the major version out - I
think from the above you want to upgrade from SLES10 SP1 to SLES_10_ SP4
then to SLES_11_ SP2?

You certainly can't, as your previous reply suggested, just apply a
kernel from a later SP to your current installed version.

Note to get from SLES10 SP1 to latest SLES11 SP2 you will need to either
upgrade via each SLES10 SP in turn (so SLES10 SP1 to SLES10 SP2, then
SLES10 SP2 to SLES10 SP3, SLES10 SP3 to SLES10 SP4, finally SLES10 SP4
to SLES11 SP2) or migrate to a new SLES11 SP2 on new hardware (which is
easier if your servers are virtual since you don't then need another
physical server).

All versions of SLES are free to download - the cost is associated with
product updates & support.

As for Lotus Domino you should check with IBM as to the system
requirements and supported configurations.
