I’ve been batteling a week now to get a HP ProLiant Gen9 to install via autoyast, and I’m stuck. Whatever I do, I just can’t seem to get fcoe to work correctly during autoyast install. When doing a manual install, booting from the same DVD image, using the same software repository on the network, I have to manually activate fcoe before I see some disks. As soon as I try an autoyast install, whatever I do, the fcoe interfaces can’t be activated, even when the installation falls back to manual install. All options I have in this situation is iSCSI or Multipath, FCoE is totally missing.
What do I have to do to get the installation environment to detect the fcoe devices automatically, activate them and use the created autoyast file during the installation. Even manual activation and then continuing with the autoyast config would be acceptable, but at the moment I’m stuck at just manually installing with the info from the autoyast file. With several hundred systems to migrate from IBM to HP this is not a viable option.
BTW I know this is an OpenSUSE forum, but I expect that the development team has seen this already before the commercial product was introduced. (and the SUSE forum hadn’t had updates in the install section sinds half July)
You are nevertheless at the wrong place, apparently having the assumption that the developers are here. This is the openSUSE forums where openSUSE users try to help each other. Developers may come here by incident only. And most openSUSE users here never have run SUSE Linux Enterprise, thus can not help you from their experience.
The best advice IMHO is to go to the SUSE LInux forums: https://forums.suse.com/forum.php
You can use the same username/password as here.

Most developers do not read the forums, as Henk said. Some read some of
the mail lists, depending on their interest. We are mostly users here.
On the other hand, although the commercial release derives from
openSUSE, it does so loosely, adding or replacing with their own features.
And the user base is different.
For instance, I did not recognize the FCOE word, I had to look it up in
the wikipedia. It is “Fibre Channel over Ethernet”. Neither that nor
autoyast are typically used on openSUSE installs, but of course, some do.
So, you should get better help from the SUSE forums instead
