I am trying to configure AutoYast profile for installing Leap 42.3.
I deploy my XML profile file by HTTP as the following ifcfg=eth*=dhcp
I see that the profile is downloaded and Automatic Installation proceeds.

The issue is that there is single one repository configured in software
manager: openSUSE installation DVD. How could I specify in autoyast to
configure usual openSUSE network repositories (oss, update-oss, non-oss,
update-non-oss) before installation is performed?

We use something like the following[0]:
------------------------------ 8< ------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE profile>
<profile xmlns="";
<add_on_products config:type="list">
<ask_on_error config:type="boolean">false</ask_on_error>

<name>openSUSE 42.3 install</name>
<ask_on_error config:type="boolean">false</ask_on_error>

<name>openSUSE 42.3 updates</name>
------------------------------ >8 ------------------------------

- update should be "/suse/update/42.3/"

However, since I haven't tested with this setup, I wanted to posted
the tested-and-working example as-is. (c;

Thanks. This is very similar to what I invented. But is there a way to
avoid manual specification?
I mean, when manual system installation is performed, then the user
doesn't have to know network repos URLs. They are hardcoded somewhere
inside YaST configuration.
