I am using SLES 12 and have changed the DISPLAYMANAGER from gdm to console, to do some work. I thought, change the file displaymanger back to gdm, the Gnome will start after reboot. The system still booting in console mode.
How can I activate Gnome starting automatically?
I reply myself: startin’ yast in console mode, and enable the service. Startin’ via yast - no problem. GUI is usable.
After the reboot, the displaymanager doesn’t start the gui. Checking the services manager the display-manager ist Enabled/Inactive. How can I change that the display-manager will started Enabled & active?
To set the graphical session to start (aka init/runlevel 5);
systemctl set-default graphical.target
For console session to start (aka init/runlevel 3);
systemctl set-default multi-user.target
You can press ctrl+alt+F1 to get to a console, press alt+ctl+F7 to get
back to the GUI.

I have started the gdm with yast–> service Manager. Setting the default: systemctl set-default multi-user.target.
Rebooted the system. Unfortunately the gdm is not started.
