I have a customer that reported the same problem installing a fresh SLES11
SP3 installation on the same hardware. The model apparently has a new
Smart Array P840 controller.

What *should* be working, is that you *boot* from the
hp_proliant_gen9-sle12-x86_64-1.0.iso which is available here [1].
This is not working well on this model, and is what the bug is about.


The workaround my other customer used, is using the ´intelligent
provisioning´ option available to teh iLO of that model Proliant.

You can than provision the SLES iso there, and install SLES with the
required drivers which than seem to be coming from a driver repository
that comes with the server : file:///driverupdate.

Apparently using this work-around type method allows you to install the
SLES OS.

If you do have the ability to open a SR with SUSE technical support, than
please do so, ask for me, and please work with me on resolving this
properly.

Best regards
Hans
