AutoYaST partial solution
Posted by martijnl on July 17, 2006
Although the cause is still unclear we have got it working now with SLES9 and Service Pack 2. This is still not what we would want because SP3 is listed as a supported configuration with VMWare.
The other odd thing about this problem is that we did manage to get it working with the Buslogic SCSI driver and SP3. However the Buslogic driver is not supported with VM’s with more than 4GB internal memory which we will be using in the Oracle database servers (among others).
To rule out a problem with a straight SP3 install we’ll try a new AutoYaST install with SP2 and then upgrade that install over the internet to SP3.
