Error registration of VM SAP HANA Expres with SUSE


I recently installed SAP HANA Express (server only, HXE.ova) in a VMware Player on Win 10 according to the instructions in
Next I watched the videos on SAP HANA Academy - SAP HANA Express
and did the appropriate changes/settings
Video 13: Setup - Changing OS passwords
Video 15: Setup - Using International Keyboards
Video 16: Setup - Static IP for VM
Video 20: Setup - Install license
Worked without problems.
In Video 22: Setup - Register VM with SUSE Denys van Kempen describes how to register the VM.
I've got the registration code from SUSE
After entering all the informations into YAST I get the error message
Invalid URL
Details: getaddrinfo: Name or service not known

Which requirements are missing or what do I have to do?
Any suggestions?

    Hi Hubert,

    For some reason, YaST on the VM cannot resolve the IP of see

    Does the resolve work when updating the repository in YAST, or when using command line tools like wget or ftp (for testing purpose)?

    You could try to add the IP for to the hosts file of the guest OS but better is to solve the resolve issue (DNS).

    Hi Denys,

    thanks for your help. I solevd the problem. In the Network Card Setup I changed the settig from Statically Asigned IP Address to Dynamic Address. Than I deleted the entry in the host file on the Windows host. I also added the IP for suse to the host file but I am not sure whether it is neccessary. After registring the VM I removed the host entry and registerd again without problems. All available updates could be installed.
