This document (000020340) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2
The file_location element specifies the location, the file should be retrieved from, and YaST will copy the file to the specified location.
For example the testfile.txt is retrieved from a location on the network and copied to /tmp:
After the autoinstallation the file was not copied to the location defined in the autoyast control file.
The following error is in the log file on the installed system:
2021-07-15 10:03:22 <3> <hostname>(2467) [bash] ShellCommand.cc(shellcommand):78 cp: cannot stat '/tmp/testfile.txt': No such file or directory
The SLE15 SP2 autoyast2 update released September/14 (autoyast2-4.2.55-3.19.2) includes the patch as well.
The patch fixes the problem by adding Installation.destdir to the source code.
