Description Mike Burns 2012-02-07 16:27:05 UTC
Description of problem:
when passing iscsi_name to autoinstall, the installation fails and sends you to a TUI screen stating something like "Invalid installation, please reboot with reinstall"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot with iscsi_name=....
2.include other required params for autoinstall
Actual results:

Expected results:
Passes and sets iscsi_name correctly

Additional info:

Comment 1 Mike Burns 2012-02-07 16:43:50 UTC
Further investigation showed that this is unrelated to iscsi_name.  It is actually due to the presence (or lack thereof) of the local_boot parameter.

If not specified, the step that would actually install the image and reboot the host would not run.

Comment 2 Mike Burns 2012-02-07 16:44:32 UTC
Note:  upgrade is an alias for local_boot and would fix this issue as well.

Comment 3 Mike Burns 2012-02-07 16:45:12 UTC

Comment 9 Guohua Ouyang 2012-03-31 06:54:11 UTC
Now, neither the local_boot or upgrade parameters are required for autoinstall, but firstboot or reinstall is required for autoinstall. Check details in 788225.

Verified on 6.3-20120330, autoinstall with BOOTIF storage_init firstboot/reinstall is successfully.

Set bug status to verified.
