    Are there really that many fewer updates for SLES11sp1 (64bit) vs
    SLES10sp4 (64bit)?

    I have both in my envir, and the sles11sp1 servers have almost no
    updates come out while the sles10sp4 servers have updates at least a
    couple times a week.

    Well SLES10 SP4 has been available for longer than SLES11 SP1 so there's
    been more time for issues to have been resolved plus theoretically
    SLES11 SP1 shipped with more stable code. It would also depend on
    whether those servers are configured with the same software patterns
    installed.

    Re: Updates

    I suspect a contributing factor to lack of SLES SP1 updates is due to it being end of life.

    With the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2 the former SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1 enters the 6 month migration window, during which time SUSE will continue to provide security updates and full support. At the end of the six-month parallel support period, on 2012-08-31, support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1 will be discontinued. Long Term Service Pack Support (LTSS) for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1 is available as a separate option.
