View Full Version : SLES 12 SP2 LPAR install: Valid metadata not found at sspecified URL

27-Feb-2017, 22:46
This is our first installation onto s390x. After several tries, I finally got far enough into the installation to have the DASD activated. Then, during the "System Probing" I got:

Unable to create repository
from URL 'dir:/mounts/mp_0006'

Details: [SLES12-SP2-12.2-0|dir:///mounts/mp_0006] Valid metadata not found at specified URL
- Can't hardlink/copy /mounts/mp_0006/license.tar.gz to /var/cache/zypp/SLES12-SP2-12.2-0Wtd3Si
- Can't provide license.tar.gz

Try again?

Any idea how I can fix this?
