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/s...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:

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

Freshly installed but unusable.
