Many Thanks Jiri,
I'm happy with the off-line, any idea why the SDK of SLES12-SP-3 seems to give issues ?

there are two ways to upgrade SLES12 to SLES15 planned:

1. Using the repos from SCC. In this case, system needs to be registered
and the new repositories are delivered form SCC. This is not yet
implemented with Beta3

2. Fully off-line (meaning no SCC, does not matter whether you use the
modules media or their local HTTP mirror), where you need to select
needed modules manually; however, this requires the system not to be
registered, because otherwise it ends up with mix of SLES12 and SLES15
repositories. You can re-register the system after upgrade, though.
