I am working on include WebYaST in the appliance. I followed the WebYaST
vendor's guide:

WebYaST initialization got stuck after accepting the license with error:
Permission is not granted
for user root

The appliance is vmware image and has 2G memory. I used SUSE Sudio Online to
build the appliance.


could you please specify what version of webyast-administrator-ws is in
Permissions should be set in post install script so please look also at
/var/log/zypp/history where could be some error report.
And if you have not edge version it can be also problem with yastws rights. So
please try in appliance this two commands which specify which permission really
polkit-auth --user root | grep #if nothing is showed then
root doesn't have rights
polkit-auth --user yastws | grep #if nothing is showed then
yastws doesn't have rights
