Service support for SLES7 has ended, and we need to upgrade our OS. SAP has certified SLES9, but I found out via the SAP marketplace that SLES9 is certified for MAXDB, which needs kernel 4.6D_ext.
Would it make sense to upgrade from SLES7 to SLES9, preserving the 4.6D kernel and SAPDB 7.3.0, or do you recommend to upgrade from SLES7 to SLES8, a certified "combination"?
