yast is always one of the tasks.

Could you provide your personal reasons why you do not want
to have YaST on your servers.

It takes "ages" to start (yast2 firewall => 4 to 5 seconds), and I am
just quicker (and have the necessary experience) to just edit the
appropriate configuration files directly to, say, add a port to the
don't-filter list.

I only resort(ed) to yast when the configuration of a component is
overly clumsy -- pppd is one of those cases. But by now, the days of
ISDN and PPPoE are gone. (It's all DHCP and and/or NAT by now.)

I use YaST for network config (because I can't remember all those
parameters) and udev ditto (for renaming to unpredicable device names).

As an aside - with Leap we have returned to unpredictable network
interface naming, but nobody seems to have complained? I guess it
wasn't really that important after all.
