That’s normal, these are internal SUSE links and they won’t be accessible.

Well, keep in mind that the public beta release dates are prone to some changes
depending on various technical reasons (Build, QA, Bugs, CDN, etc…).

We are trying to do our best but the quality of what we provide is more
important than releasing on time for the beta. And we are aware that any delay
or slip will affect beta testers but it also affect us internally. So we are not
taking this slightly!

> Question if I may, do you know which Beta will allow the use of "Update" and or "Migrate" our machines from SLES12 to SLES15 ? I have ran a number of new installs and given feed back, but it's getting my SLES12 machines onto SLES15 that is the big point for the company.

Offline migration should work with beta3, Online migration still require more
work. More information will come on this topic!

> and ... is there any Docu on how this "Update" "Migrate" is to be run, the words we have at the moment say there will be an update "in due course", which does suggest they way we did do it for SLES12 is not going to be the way with SLES15.

Yes, but still a work in progress. For now we are only providing the quick
installation guide for SLES and SLED[*],but I would really like to provide more
in the near future.

Thanks for your enthusiasm, hopefully all of your questions will be addressed
