SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 2 (SLES 12 SP2)
As of SLE12-SP2, YaST assumes the system runs in UTF-8. There are multiple ways for YaST to read configuration and text from the system and so far we do not have a fix. If you can identify the text involved, remove it or replace with ASCII.
Please open up a Service Request with our technical support organization, so that we can make sure your case is covered by a fix.
