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.
