DO NOT use this script in a PPC Environment.

Download the following RPM file to the server running SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP1. It is not required that this system (the source system) is registered with SUSE Customer Center.


Install the RPM:

# rpm -Uhv migrate-sles-to-sles4sap-12.1-3.1.noarch.rpm

After installation run the interactive script and follow the instruction on the screen.

NOTE: you need to have your email address as well as a valid registration key for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications (the target system) at hand:

Please note that in case you do have packages installed that have dependencies against IBM Java, you may have to reinstall them at the end of the procedure.

A reboot of the system is not necessary unless you install packages from the newly added channels which require such.
