The following has be reported by IBM LTC:
have to configure net twice during net install with ibmsis
CONTACT PERSON: Aaron Bolding, 8-3510
Hardware Environment: p655
Software Environment: RHEL AS 3 RC 3
[ip address & hostname deleted]
Steps to Reproduce:
1. net install machine with param to get ibmsisdd.img over nfs.
2. installer asks which eth to use and then attempts to get an address from dhcp
3. after that fails, enter the network settings.
4. installer installs ibmsis
5. installer then asks what installation source you want to use.
6. select nfs
7. repeat steps 2 and 3
8. continue installation
have to wait for dhcp to time out and configure network twice
no default to dhcp automatically
only set up network once
Additional Information:Sounds like the problem is fairly well described above.
This is a pretty generic
installer problem with driver disks (i.e. the double network config).
Over to Service to track.Greg / Glen,
Please open RH installer problem and track. Thanks
Will look at fixing for a future release

I have confirmed that this is on the RHEL3 Update2 list as a Sev3.

This is now a Sev3 on RHEL3 U3 list.

This mechanism may still be broken, but it is less important since we no longer
have to fetch ibmsis seperately. I suggest we close/defer this one.
