Description Kent Engström 2000-03-02 22:23:27 UTC
When doing a kickstart install of 6.1, using

  network --bootproto dhcp
  nfs --server --dir /install/redhat/rh61-cdrom

and DHCP server configured with

  deny unknown-clients;

  subnet netmask {
        option routers;
        option domain-name-servers;

  host host_101 {
    hardware ethernet xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx;
    filename "/install/conf/kickstart/probe.cfg";

the computer being installed fails to reverse map its IP address,
asking questions about
instead of just

To be able to install I have to add an extra zone to my nameserver,
for the bogus in-addr.arpa.localdomain domain.

Have you tested this with 6.2 to see if it still has this behavior?

Comment 2 Erik Troan 2000-07-13 13:14:15 UTC
As I haven't heard back, I'm assuming this is fixed in 6.2.
