I am new to Linux on z. Started the installation and tried both FTP and Hard Disk methods. Both returns the message above. the mount point is "iso" created in the directory I started the installation from. Any idea what should be the name of the files the installer is looking for and and why do I get this msg?

Hi ITschak,

I'm sorry I'm not familiar SLES on System Z. Perhaps someone else will
have some better advice.

Have you checked the documentation?
Installation on IBM z Systems \ Preparing for Installation
https://www.suse.com/documentation/sles-12/book_sle_deployment/data/sec_zseries_prep.html

The documentation states [QUOTE]NOTE: No Installation From Hard Disk

It is not possible to install from hard disk by putting the content of
the DVD to a partition on a DASD.[\QUOTE]

The above link provides several other options.
