Applying kernel patches to SLES_SAP

136 Views

Hello,

I am a basis admin with very little knowledge on OS administration. I am tasked to provide support for a newly installed SLES_SAP 12 SPS 1 sandbox system, on which we have installed a HANA system.

SAP note 2205917, the linux kernel should be at least at 3.12.51-60.20 while we are at 3.12.49-11.

Can anyone point me to a good documentation on how to patch SLES_SAP kernel?

Additional information if required:

> SUSEConnect -s

[{"identifier":"SLES_SAP","version":"12.1","arch":"x86_64","status":"Not Registered"}]

> zypper lr
