Description Jan Stodola 2012-09-25 07:33:01 EDT
Description of problem:
When the installation on s390x is finished and guest should reboot to installed system, new installation starts after reboot. Checking setting in /sys showed that guest is configured to reipl from device 0.0.000c (virtual reader) instead of DASD/FCP disk:

[anaconda root@rtt7 ~]# cat /sys/firmware/reipl/reipl_type
[anaconda root@rtt7 ~]# cat /sys/firmware/reipl/ccw/device 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 18.8 + workarounds from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/s390x/18#issues_found_in_F-18_Alpha_20120917

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. modify boot command line, append "updates=http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/updates/updates-857940.1.img" (bug 857940)
2. start the installation from 3270 console
3. login via ssh as root and run "rm /tmp/updates" (bug 859984)
4. login via ssh as "install" user and finish the installation
5. reboot at the end of the install
Actual results:
reboot back to installation, reIPL device is not set correctly

Expected results:
guest reboots to installed system
Comment 5 IBM Bug Proxy 2012-10-05 12:50:44 EDT
After the installation is complete and reboot happens the installer restarts again, this is unlike earlier releases like RHEL, where the reboot starts the installed instance. Noticed on zVM guest.

The UI rewrite lost the reipl step.  I'm working with the other devs to find an appropriate place to wire this back up.

Comment 9 Jan Stodola 2012-10-16 10:04:07 EDT
No longer able to reproduce with anaconda-18.16, reipl device is set correctly (tested installations on DASD and FCP drives), installed system boots fine.

Thanks, closing this bug.
