I thought the update/upgrade with zypper is now 'officially' supported: (but hidden in the SDB

As I understand it:

UPGRADE is supported via:
dvd, zypper dup, yast2 wagon

INSTALL is supported via:
dvd, LiveCD, NetInstall CD

What was the question?


The question was, what the preferred method is for upgrading a virtual
machine, as rebooting from dvd and selection "upgrade" is not possible.

Sure it is. What VM are you using?? It is quite possible in VirtualBox.

I've installed XEN domU images directly from (a copy of) the
installation tree.

So if (!) upgrading by means of booting through a cd/dvd image is the
preferred method, i presume i have to alter the xen-config file and have
it point to a 11.3-net-boot-image, Not?

I'll will try it with some old 11.0 machines....
