Documentation Conventions

The terms OES 11 and OES 11 SP3 are used in this guide. A support pack is mentioned to differentiate something that is new or changed in that support pack release of OES 11. All statements that refer to OES 11 also apply to the latest OES 11 support pack unless otherwise indicated.

In this documentation, a greater-than symbol (>) is used to separate actions within a step and items within a cross-reference path.
