DETAILS OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
This patch fixes the following incidents:

Patch ID: 7.4.3.100

* 4021519 (Tracking ID: 4021515)

SYMPTOM:
On SLES 12 SP4 and later systems, the installer fails to fetch the media speed of the network interfaces.

DESCRIPTION:
The path of the 'ethtool' command is changed in SLES 12 SP4. Therefore, on SLES 12 SP4 and later systems, the installer does not recognize the changed path and uses an incorrect path '/sbin/ethtool' instead of '/usr/sbin/ethtool' for the 'ethtool' command. Consequently, while configuring the product, the installer fails to fetch the media speed of the network interfaces and displays its value as "Unknown".

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix updates the installer to use the correct path for the 'ethtool' command.

* 4029177 (Tracking ID: 4027759)

SYMPTOM:
The product installer installs lower versions packages if multiple patch bundles are specified using the patch path options in the incorrect order.

DESCRIPTION:
The product installer expects that the patch bundles, if any, are specified in the lower-to-higher order. Consequently, the installer always overrides the package version from the available package in the last patch bundle in which it exists. If patch bundles are not specified in the expected order, installer installs last available version for a component package.

RESOLUTION:
To address this issue, the product installer is updated to correctly identify the higher package version before installing the patch bundles. It does so regardless of the order in which the patch bundles are specified.
