The pre-upgrade RPM rearranges free space on the appliance so that there's enough room to copy the patch files to the appliance and start the installation. After the update, the space for the patch files is returned to the file system.
The system may take some time to complete the commands. Don't interrupt the update or the system may be left in an inconsistent state. For this reason, it is important to use a reliable and uninterruptible shell, such as a direct console login (or ILOM equivalent), or use the screen command to prevent network disconnections from interrupting the update.
To minimize this downtime, you can continue monitoring and collecting with your current (source) Audit Vault Server while performing the update on a new (destination) Audit Vault Server that's a backup-restored system. The source Audit Vault Server continues to monitor and collect audit data during the update. When the destination Audit Vault Server is completely updated, you migrate the delta data and then switch monitoring from the source Audit Vault Server to the new destination.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is a modern, modular operating system for both multimodal and traditional IT. This document provides a high-level overview of features, capabilities, and limitations of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP4 and highlights important product updates.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP4 is a multimodal operating system that paves the way for IT transformation in the software-defined era.It is a modern and modular OS that helps simplify multimodal IT, makes traditional IT infrastructure efficient and provides an engaging platform for developers.As a result, you can easily deploy and transition business-critical workloads across on-premises and public cloud environments.
Designed for interoperability, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server integrates into classical Unix and Windows environments, supports open standard interfaces for systems management, and has been certified for IPv6 compatibility.
This modular, general-purpose operating system runs on four processor architectures and is available with optional extensions that provide advanced capabilities for tasks such as real-time computing and high-availability clustering.
The new version of wicked in SLES 15 SP4 has added initial support to decode the SMBIOS Management Controller Host Interface (Type 42) structure.It will expose it as wicked firmware:redfish configuration to setup a Host Network Interface (to the BMC) using the Redfish over IP protocol.This allows access to the Redfish Service (via redfish-localhost in /etc/hosts) used to manage the computer system.
This feature can be enabled by setting the environmental variable ZYPP_SINGLE_RPMTRANS to 1.Because this feature is offered as a technology preview, enabling it system-wide is known to have issues, thus we recommend enabling this feature per command, for example:
This feature can be enabled by setting the environmental variable ZYPP_MEDIANETWORK to 1.Because this feature is offered as a technology preview, enabling it system-wide is known to have issues, thus we recommend enabling this feature per command, for example:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for Arm 12 SP2 and later kernels have used a page size of 4K.This offers the widest compatibility also for small systems with little RAM,allowing to use Transparent Huge Pages (THP) where large pages make sense.
For Raspberry Pi* devices, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for Arm 12 SP3 and later includeDas U-Boot as bootloader, in order to align the boot process withother platforms.By default, it loads GRUB as UEFI application from a FAT-formatted partition,and GRUB then loads Linux kernel and ramdisk from a file system such as Btrfs.
In 15 SP4, a sanity check was introduced to prevent this.It works by removing the kernel resume parameter if it points to a non-existent device.However, that means a system would not use the hibernation data.To fix it, do the following:
Upgrading the system is only supported from the most recent patch level.Make sure the latest system updates are installed by either running zypper patch or by starting the YaST module Online Update.An upgrade on a system that is not fully patched may fail.
SUSE provides virtual disk images for Minimal-VM and Minimal-Image in the file formats .qcow2, .vhdx, and .vmdk, compatible with KVM, Xen, OpenStack, Hyper-V, and VMware environments.All Minimal-VM and Minimal-Image images set up the same disk size (24 GB) for the system.Due to the properties of different file formats, the size of Minimal-VM and Minimal-Image image downloads differs between formats.
SLE 15 SP4 introduces a new Python 3 Module, which includes the alternatively available development Python interpreter, formerly included in the Basesystem Module.This new module will allow for more flexibility for the lifecycle of the packages provided within it and a clean separation between the system and development interpreter.
As the python39 package was part of the Basesystem Module on SLE 15 SP3, the introduction of this new module will require some changes when migrating to SLE 15 SP4.If you are using python39 and migrate from SLE 15 SP3, you will have to add the Python 3 module after migration via SUSEConnect to receive updates for this alternative interpreter.Otherwise the package will remain orphaned and without security updates.
The current SLE container images were not small enough for cloud-native applications.Even though they had fewer packages compared to a regular SLE system, they still included many that were not required.These extra packages increased the size of the image and, most importantly, its attack surface.
The SUSE kernel module tools have been updated to better comply with the file system hierarchy standards and also clearly indicate that certain kernel modules will be disabled in a future SUSE Linux Enterprise release.
In SLE SP2 we have introduced the kernel-preempt package for latency-sensitive workloads on x86-64 and AArch64 hardware architectures.The settings of kernel-preempt support timely reaction to external events and precise timing at the cost of overall system throughput.
In addition to the firmware files being compressed, the packaging scheme has also been changed.Previously, all firmware files were shipped in the kernel-firmware package.Now, the files are split into sub-packages, and the kernel-firmware-all package will pull all the sub-packages into the system using the kernel-firmware provides symbol.
In previous SLES versions, the Btrfs file system implementation could not work with file systems formatted with a block size smaller than the configured kernel page size.That means a file system formatted with 4-kilobyte block size could be mounted by the kernel using 4-kilobyte page size but not on another system that uses 64-kilobyte pages.
bpftrace is a high-level tracing language for Linux enhanced Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) available in the Linux kernel.bpftrace uses LLVM as a backend to compile scripts to BPF bytecode and makes use of BCC for interacting with the Linux BPF system, as well as existing Linux tracing capabilities: kernel dynamic tracing (kprobes), user-level dynamic tracing (uprobes), and tracepoints.
During installation, the entries generated for LUKS devices in /etc/fstab used UUID.This meant that tools such as systemd generators could not know which LUKS device to activate to make a filesystem appear, unless all volumes were set up at boot. 041b061a72
