   SUSE Optional Update: Optional update for rear116

Announcement ID:    SUSE-OU-2014:1597-1
Rating:             low
References:         #887134 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension 11 SP3

   An update that has one optional fix can now be installed.


   This optional update provides Relax-and-Recover (ReaR) 1.16.

   In addition to Relax-and-Recover version 1.10 that is still provided in
   the RPM package "rear" we provide Relax-and-Recover version 1.16 as
   additional totally separated RPM package "rear116".

   A new separated package name rear116 is used so that users where version
   1.10 does not support their particular needs can manually upgrade to
   version 1.16. On the other hand, users who have a working disaster
   recovery procedure with version 1.10 do not need to upgrade. The package
   name contains the version and the packages conflict with each other to
   avoid that an installed version may get accidentally replaced with another

   For each rear version upgrade you should re-validate that your particular
   disaster recovery procedure still works.

   See in particular the section "Version upgrades" at
   <> .
