Description of problem:
If the OS boot disk on the RHEL7 hosts is larger than 2TB, the automatic installation fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attempt a kickstart of RHEL7 OSP hosts using any deployment, with the OS disks configured (e.g. via perc controller to use a RAID5 device across multiple internal drives).
The workaround is to add the following to the partition scheme "OpenStack Default" :
part biosboot --fstype=biosboot --size=1
(immediately after the "clearpart --all --initlabel")
The above workaround was gathered after reading:
(see comment #9 and comment #15). Since a custom partition is used, we need to add some logic to determine if the size of sda is > 2TB, and ensure the creation of the biosboot partition.
The comments being referenced, i.e. 9 and 15, are comments against 1032428, not this bz entry.
