SAP license verification fails after upgrade to SLES12 SP5 due to system UUID change
This document (000019647) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP5 for SAP
This may impact case-sensitive tools that read this UUID, such as SAP license registration/verification checks.
The kernel 4.12.14-122.26.1 or any newer kernels for SLES 12 SP5 contain the following change:
- Delete patches.suse/firmware-dmi_scan-use-lowercase-letters-for-uuid.patch
The letter case change breaks compatibility with the SAP license
generator and possibly others. It was drawn into SLE12-SP5 through
SLE15 while it wasn't meant to go there, so remove it now.
- commit 726940c
If you use the kernel 4.12.14-122.26.1 or any newer kernels for SLES 12 SP5, you should not encounter the described issue.
A new SAP note will be created at a later time which addresses this problem.
