Description Thomas Uebermeier 2004-06-08 14:35:56 UTC
Description of problem:
https://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-3-Manual/sysadmin-guide/s1-kickstart2-options.html

- installing RHEL through kickstart
- having more than one network interfaces on the machine
- kickstart searches on the interface, that ist defined as the first
in ks.cfg for the NFS server

This behaviour should to be added to the documentation (maybe even as
feature on redhat-config-kickstart ?)

Thomas:

Do you mean what's shown at:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-3-Manual/sysadmin-guide/s1-kickstart2-startinginstall.html

ksdevice=<device>

    The installation program will use this network device to connect
to the network. For example, to start a kickstart installation with
the kickstart file on an NFS server that is connected to the system
through the eth1 device, use the command ks=nfs:<server>:/<path>
ksdevice=eth1 at the boot: prompt.

Thomas, haven't heard back from you on this, and our deadline for RHEL4
documentation is looming. Please contact me to reopen the bug or for
more clarification! Thanks so much!

Andrius, 
yes you can keep the bug as closed. ksdevice is the right option.
