Installed from Installer DVD so a very basic install under VirtualBox.

If I enabled the firewall and/or opened SSH port I received the very 
unhelpful error "The proposal contains an error that must be resolved 
before continuing. [OK]" with no clue as to what/where the error is. 
Fortunately I'd made minimal changes so traced it back to the Firewall 
or SSH section, undid my changes, and I could then install.

When writing NTP configuration during installation I received an error 
"Cannot adjust 'NTP' service. [OK]". Clicking OK allowed install to 
proceed but given I just went with defaults for time just choosing to 
synchronize with NTP server (with default UK server uk.pool.ntp.org) 
that seems a bit odd.

The major annoyance (for me) is the network device name is enp0s3 as 
opposed to eth0 and I remember this being discussed during the SLES12 
beta. Fortunately the "net.ifnames=0" trick works.
