Hi All,

Anyone seen this behavior?

With sles 11 if I set disk.enableUUID=true for a vmware virtual machine then disks would get listed with there scsi-id's in the /dev/disk/by-id folder.

For some reason the same trick does not work on SLES 12 and I can't figure out why.

Would appreciate any suggestions.

Note that this forum is for issues specifically relating to SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server for SAP Applications and not a general support forum
for SLES. To get a proper response you might therefore want to repost in
one of the other SLES forums - I suggest the Virtualisation one.

HTH.
