I don’t always have the DVD handy - but 99% of the time online. How do I configure OpenSuse to get packages from a repository instead of looking for a DVD? If this is pointed out somewhere else plainly - please just point me in the right direction. Thanks!
YaST -> Software -> Software repositories
add, delete, enable disable as required.
Well darn - just found it. Yast > Software Repositories > Uncheck the CD line under “Enabled” Well, at least someone can now hopefully find this.
while you’re adding repositories you can also delete the dvd repository by clicking it and then selecting delete.
I see you sorted your issue, once the install is complete I create a
local repository and point it at the downloaded dvd iso file and set
that to be used before the online repos…

This is a good idea. I too follow it on my machines. If you don’t have the original ISO file and only DVD is available, you can re-create the ISO by dumping the DVD device to a file using the dd command.
dd if=/dev/sr0 of=openSUSE.iso
Substitute the dvd device if it not /dev/sr0
