Having some installation test for SLES 11 running on my ESX 3.5 U3 recently. Once we meet adequate SLES 11 hardware requirements, the installation process can be done very fast yet quite confusing on “custom partitioning” part but other than that SLES 11 installation akin to what we did last time on SLES 10. Perhaps you also may had some errors “calling Yast” during root & user account configuration which end up user unable to log-in to this new fresh SLES 11 once installation completed. However, boot into “init 1″ let me to reset my root password.
So, in future I will try to setup few services like, dhcp,dns, ldap, samba & etc on this new SLES specially on iSCSI target & initiator and see whether they(Novell) do vastly changed SLES 11 from SLES10 in term of OS stability, security and etc.
SLES11, 512mb, 10gb, kernel 2.6.27, gnome, esx 3.5 u3, nfs, SLES-11-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD1.iso
