Hi,

I am trying to install SLES 11 SP1 in VMWare player and am receiving the following Yast error. I have attempted the install a few times with no change. The install has been checked and is good.


Unable to create repository
from URL 'cd:///'.

Details:
Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)


Any ideas whats happening here?

Thanks

hello;

Did you ever find a resolution to this problem? I am running into the same
thing. Rather than a VMware environment I am mounting the DVD iso via a
remote management card for a physical server.

Thank you,

Brad Johnson
