SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
System Profile Location
A profile for this machine could not be found or retrieved. Check that you entered the correct location on the command line and try again. Because of this error, you can only enter a URL to a profile and not to a directory. If you are using rules or host name-based control files, restart the installation process and make sure the control files are accessible.
If the profile location is changed to a specific AutoYaST control file and retry selected, the following error is observed:
An error occurred while fetching the profile:
Cannot find URL 'http://<install_server>/autoyast/profile/control.xml' via protocol HTTP(S). Server returned code 0.
After switching to the F2 console, the ip address command shows the network is not connected.
The Installation Boot Options line is:
textmode=1 nosplash autoyast=http://<install_server>/autoyast/profile/However, when specifying a specific AutoYaST control file, it works correctly, for example:
textmode=1 nosplash autoyast=http://<install_server>/autoyast/profile/control.xml
textmode=1 nosplash ifcfg=eth*=dhcp autoyast=http://<install_server>/autoyast/profile/
