OES2SP3 and OES11 channels to be upgraded to eDirectory 8.8 SP7
This document (7011599) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
In order to continue to provide world class support for our older versions of Open Enterprise Server, Novell will be upgrading the version of eDirectory offered through our OES patch channels.
OES2SP3 and OES11 both shipped with an older version of eDirectory, 8.8 SP6. This version was released two years ago. Our current version of eDirectory, 8.8 SP7, which shipped with OES11SP1, provides many additional enhancements and fixes in addition to resolving the latest security vulnerabilities found.
To make eDirectory 8.8 SP7 available to older OES customers as well, this version of eDirectory will be introduced into the OES2SP3 and OES11 channels. Novell expects this to take place in the April 2013 time frame.
Once eDirectory 8.8 SP7 is introduced to the OES2SP3 and OES11 channels, there will be no further 8.8 SP6 updates for the OES platform. All future fixes & enhancements will be in 8.8 SP7.
Though the eDirectory upgrade is being provided by the channel, the same prerequisites exist as for any upgrade of eDirectory whether on an OES or non-OES platform. These include:
- Tree health checks
- Server Health checks
- Ensuring NTP time is in synch
These tasks are covered in the Upgrading to OES—Best Practices Guide
