Problem with SUU DVD image?

I went through the same experience at a recovery situation at a client site. Why would the ISO be split up for download?? It seems rather odd with today's network bandwidth availability.

You need both images: it's a dvd splitted in two.
You have to merge the two in one

- (windows) copy /b OM_6.1.0_SUU_A00.00*.iso OM_6.1.0_SUU_A00.iso
- (linux) cat OM_6.1.0_SUU_A00.00*.iso > OM_6.1.0_SUU_A00.iso
