(3.4 Converting a SLES installation to a SLES-SAP installation)
While it is possible to register a SLES with a SLES for SAP activation key, this is not recommended.
The SLES product does not come with ESPOS, LTSS and HA like SLES for SAP and esp. the missing LTSS raises problems when the Service Pack installed is not the current one. Because of that, such a system is not considered as supported.
The other way round, it is not possible to register a SLES for SAP product with a SLES entitlement.
