Screenshot of the kickstart logging
Looks like an broken config. The last url seems to miss the hostname

Another try to kickstart via fixed IP
A try to kickstart with a fixed ip failed also.
Are all of these attempts using fixed IP address? Using eth0 or eth1?
Best guess is we've closed this in the latest build.
I think this bug has not been fixed.
I tried to initiate kickstart from rhns-3.1rc1.
The package auto-kickstart-ks-redhat-advanced-server-i386-qu2-1.2-3
was installed on my target system as it supposed to be.
Then the file
was created and grub was configured to use it.
The ks.cfg should be in this file but it was missing and I got an
error screen as in the previousely attached screenshot for fixed IP
Over to chip to see if he can figure out why NRN's auto-kickstart is
pointing to a file instead of to a URL. This seems to be a different
bug from Christian's, however. Christian's bug should be fixed in RC1
re-assign to email@example.com
