Maybe I just got too less coffee this morning but I'm running into trouble invoking AutoYaST on SLES 12. Using the original installation medium (DVD 1) and the following linuxrc boot parameters netdevice=eth0 hostip=192.168.251.135 netmask=255.255.255.0 autoyast=nfs://192.168.251.6/srv/nfs/default/autoinst-SLES12.xml
breaks the installation with error "An error occurred while fetching the profile" (and so on). Searching around the system at this state I found out that eth0 was not configured. No configuration and state DOWN.
What am I missing?
