This is a question I honestly need SUSE engineering team to answer:
I just installed SLES for SAP Applications and I intend to use the DVD ISO images as repository.

Right after I finished installing, the first thing I do is configure VNC so that I do not have to stay in the cold server room. I need to know why SLES management team decides not to have the vncmanager package already installed for me so that I can get up and running quickly. Anyway, I try to use zypper to install that package that hopefully will be on the ISO images.

However, I cannot even access my ISO images on my flash drive because fuse-exfat is not installed and SUSE Enterprise cannot read the repository on my flash drive. Really!

Simple things like that should be made really easy and simple.

Fortunately SSH works. So I SSH into the system and try to start the vncserver as per documentation (https://www.suse.com/documentation/sled-12/singlehtml/book_sle_admin/book_sle_admin.html) :vncserver -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16

Simple command hopefully to simply start a vnc session, but no, a fresh install out of the box comes with tons of errors in the log which can be seen in the logfile. Titbits of the error messages:

** Message: couldn't access control socket: /run/user/1001/keyring/control: No such file or directory
gnome-keyring-daemon: insufficient process capabilities, unsecure memory might get used

SUSE 12 SP3 is just really bad. How did they even release this product without testing such basic stuff?

Freshly installed but unusable.

Why did you install SLES for SAP Applications? Are you wanting to
install SAP. If not (and particularly given the rest of your post) you
would probably be better of posting this in one of the other (more
generic) SLES forums @
https://forums.suse.com/forumdisplay.php?8-SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Server
- I'd suggest the SLES Install-Boot forum @
https://forums.suse.com/forumdisplay.php?18-SLES-Install-Boot

Please remember that SLES is SUSE Linux Enterprise _Server_ - it is
designed to be installed from media or via network boot then accessing
local or remote software repositories via network, not installing
software from ISOs mounted off local USB drives.

The above documentation link is for SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop)
which theoretically should also apply to SLES but not necessarily (there
are differences).

It was tested.

I'd suggest reposting in the other forum where you might get more attention.
