Upgrade the Server

SUSE Manager uses an X.Y.Z versioning schema. To determine which upgrade procedure you need, look at which part of the version number is changing.

Major Version Upgrade (X Upgrade)

Upgrading to the next major version. For example, upgrading from 3.2 to 4.0 or to 4.1. See upgrade:server-x.adoc.

Minor Version Upgrade (Y Upgrade)

Upgrading to the next minor version. This is often referred to as a service pack (SP) migration. For example, upgrading from 4.1 to 4.2 or from 4.0 to 4.2. See upgrade:server-y.adoc.

Patch Level Upgrade (Z Upgrade)

Upgrading within the same minor version. This is often referred to as a maintenance update. For example, upgrading from 4.2.0 to 4.2.1. See upgrade:server-z.adoc.
