    Hi and welcome
    Do you mean AutoYaST, rather than just YaST?

    If you use SUSE Studio, this include SUSE Manager to create and deploy images.

    Perhaps some more details on what your wanting to achieve?

    Hi
    Have a look through the documentation here;
    https://www.suse.com/documentation/s..._autoyast.html

    Maybe you need to do an install of SLES on a machine, at the end of the install you can generate an AutoYaST file, else if an existing system you can use YaST to create the relevant autoinst.xml file.

    Yast is the server/desktop-side application that configures everything in
    SUSE-land. Included in that is technology to handle installation of
    software from configured software repositories. Yast is great and does a
    ton of stuff on the machine. If, during the start of the installation,
    the installer is pointed to a specific software repository (like one
    hosted by SUSE Manager), Yast will pull data from there instead of a
    CD/DVD or whatever.

    SUSE Manager is software to help manage patches. It hosts the software
    repository or repositories for SUSE installations. It is neat because it
    lets you do some really powerful things with patches to help protect
    production machines from patches until they are properly tested, meaning
    you can point dev, test, qa, and production systems at different
    repositories within SUSE Manager, manage which patches are visible to
    which types of machines, and then very safely apply only the patches
    necessary to the relevant machines. I believe it also lets you break out
    machines by type (PostgreSQL DB boxes, vs. web servers, vs. backup
    machines, vs. hosts for thin clients, vs directory servers, vs. file
    servers... etc.) so you can really easily control, for a decent number of
    systems (tens of thousands in at least one case of which I am aware), how
    patching works without touching every single receiver of the software. As
    a software repository, of course, SUSE Manager can also be used for installs.

    Good luck.

    Hi
    Perhaps a read here might clarify;
    https://www.suse.com/products/suse-m...nager-1-7.html

    With SUSE Studio integration you can build your images, deploy and
    manage.

    If your just wanting to build and manually deploy then autoyast and
    kiwi to build the images.
