anaconda silently ignores hard disk which is a possible dmraid member
Last modified: 2014-06-11 09:43:30 EDT
Description of problem:
anaconda silently ignores hard disk which is a possible dmraid member since FC18, while FC17 has a (very useful!) warning box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC18, FC19, FC20-alpha
- use a harddisk which was a former member of a dmraid
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot CD/DVD into installation setup
Having no local disk to install distribution
Warning box like in FC17
to clear obsolete dmraid information I'm using
workaround is use dmraid command to remove the BIOS RAID metadata.
dmraid -r -E /dev/sdc
Do you really want to erase “sil” ondisk metadata on /dev/sdc ? [y/n] :y
after reboot anaconda see /dev/sdc disk.
Please attach the logs from /tmp/*log as individual text/plain attachments.
Sorry, had no chance to provide requested logs so far. In case I found a harddrive in the future which was a former BIOS dmraid member, I will update the case.
