Just a quick question about running virtual machines on SLED. Is it
supported? Documentation apparently only talks about SLES.
Yast fails if I try to run “Install Hypervisor and tools” with error

If SLED offers the relevant package(s) then it should be supported by
SUSE but if your adding packages from SLES or somewhere else then it
wouldn’t be supported. I believe “Install Hypervisor and Tools” trys to
install Xen for which the packages are not available with SLED.
SLED, as the name SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop suggests, is aimed at
single end-user using it as a desktop environment and not for hosting
virtual machines which is where SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server)
comes in. However there is a grey area between the two but if you want
to do stuff that SLED doesn’t allow then perhaps openSUSE is a better fit?
