2.3 SLES for SAP Applications — Installation

This is a standard manual SUSE Linux Enterprise Server installation; for details about such a SLES installation, see the SLES Deployment Guide, Chapter 6, Installation with YaST.

Figure 2-2 License Confirmation

On the initial dialog confirm the license (see Figure 2-2).

Figure 2-3 Initial Registration Dialog

On the Registration dialog check your Network Configuration with the upper right button. The Network Settings will automatically pop up, if the automatic configuration via DHCP fails. Once the network configuration is checked, enter your registration data and confirm the dialog with Next.

NOTE: Additional Packages Pre-Selected

If you install with registration, the SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension repository by default will be activated and some few SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension packages will get installed. This will not happen, if you will register the product after the installation.

You will be prompted for all common installation settings, like partitioning of storage devices, network, or software packages.
