Based on the various installation issues I've run across these past several months, I was asked for my assessment on the new Suse Enterprise Linux environments now that I've several under my belt; whether or not the problems were typical of new installations or indicative of something far more problematic. When I explained it would be irresponsible of me to determine at this point, the question was obviously, "Why?" An answer I was pleased to explain:

Environment #1: VMware Virtual Machine on Network Topography Alpha
Environment #2: Bare-Metal install on Network Topography Bravo
Environment #3: Blade Chassis on Network Topography Charlie

Three dissimilar server architectures on three dissimilar networks. Yes, I had (presumably) six different types of problems. I'll know the next time I work through them.

That is good, I am sure the people asking have little to no Linux experience and think it's like windows and can be installed simply anywhere. And of course at their whim.

Keep up the good fight!

Definitely too many variables to tell with the various combinations you cited ~ and the fact that doing anything the first time is always a learning process.

did you end up getting it (SLES 11 SP1 for SAP Applications) to work then?

No. I ended up rebuilding every environment with normal SLES 11 SP1. The "For SAP Applications" disallowed many configurable install-time options required for the numerous platforms I was installing on.
