Upgrade openSUSE 11.1 to 11.4

Has anyone tried doing an upgrade from 11.1 to 11.4? If so, can I just boot the from the disk (ISO in VM ESXi) and will it do an upgrade or will it try and do a fresh install?

I want to maintain all the user accounts and home shares while getting this old VM server back into a supported version.

thank you!

11.1 to 11.4 is not supported and not recommended here. You should do a fresh install or perhaps the Evergreen build would be of some help.

With the DVD is supported. Or almost so, because 11.1 is out of maintenance
already.

Booting the DVD will ask whether you want to install or upgrade. I would do
a complete backup first.
