Description of problem:

Networking doesn't work, so I want to check the logs. But the rootpw on install doesn't work and I cannot set the root password in the admin dialog

Sorry, forgot to add "enforcing=0" to the pxe boot config.

So it appears to be an selinux error..

Comment 2 Netbulae 2014-08-11 09:58:22 UTC
But it would still be  nice to be able to add a root password when networking is disabled

Comment 3 Fabian Deutsch 2014-08-11 12:15:25 UTC
Thanks for the report.

It seems that I can set a root password using the ovirt-node-config-password utility when selinux is in permissive mode.

When booting the iso in permissive mode, I was also able to use the rootpw= parameter.

oVirt 3.5 has been released and should include the fix for this issue.
