Does anyone having a working autoyast example that uses iSCSI as storage?

But it does not seems to work and shows "device '' not found by storage backend" in Yast.
Also tried not specifying an iSCSI section and passing the information through the iBFT in the hope that the installer picks it up automatically (which does work for other OS like CentOS and Windows Server), with the same result.
Sorry for late reply. I was on vacation.
Unfortunately specifying the iscsi setup in the <iscsi-client> section of a autoyast profile currently does not work. Autoyast would need to have code to do iscsi-client setup before trying to apply <partitioning> section and such code is currently simply not there. But it should not be too much work to add that, so I keep this in mind and most probably will add that for next release (openSuSE 13.2 and/or SLE12).
If the iscsi setup is done via iBFT on the other hand, it should work. In this case you should not need a <iscsi-client> section on autoyast profile at all since the iscsi disk is integrated into the system via Network card BIOS and should be available to autoyast like a physical disk. Could you provide me with the content of /var/log/YaST2 of such an installation attempt, so that I can check what is wrong. Unfortunatly I do not have a iBFT capable newtork card in one of my test systems.
