RE: [opensuse-autoinstall] Specifying a local (i.e. on DVD) Add-On Repository in add_on_products.xml for SLES 11 SP1
What you can try is to do a manual installation (remove the autoyast=...)
parameter and try to add the add-on manually then. If that fails too, then
there is something wrong with the add-on. If you can add it manually, then
there is something wrong on the autoyast side.

I performed the manual installation like you had suggested. During the manual
installation, I did not see the error and I was able to install the 3rd Party
RPMs that I had included.

If it's an autoyast issue, you can try to move the add-on from DVD to a USB
stick, just for testing, and use usb://.... then for the add-on URL. So we
if it's an issue with the cd:/// url

I copied the contents of cd:///updates to a usb so that it would be located at
usb:///updates. I altered the add_on_products.xml file so that the URL
specified was "usb:///updates" instead of "relurl:///updates". I then
attempted an automated installation using my existing autoinstall.xml file, I
received a message similar to what I had originally seen--it said "Unable to
add product usb:///updates".
