Description Art Fisher 2004-03-05 16:23:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; 

Description of problem:
Remote installation through an RSA2 service processor fails when 
prompting for the 2nd CD. The 2nd CD appears not to mount properly so 
the file transfer fails.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attach Windows client to RSA2
2.Login to RSA2 from web browser
3.Launch remote console
4.Insert installation CD into Windows client CDROM drive
5.Mount remote CD from remote console
6.Power up local server
7.Proceed with text-based install
8.Insert 2nd CD when prompted

Actual Results:  I/O error when attempting file transfer from 2nd CD

Expected Results:  Installation should proceed

Additional info:

You must have an RSA2 service processor installed in an appropriate 
IBM server to recreate this problem. Mike Gehagan should already have 
an RSA2 adapter.

The remote client browser must be run on a Windows workstation 
because of a java applet dependency on Windows JRE.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-03-05 17:04:09 UTC
Do the same workarounds as in bug 112327 apply here?  If so, then I
really think that your service processor stuff is screwing stuff up
(and since we don't have the source to the modules, we can't support them)

Comment 2 Art Fisher 2004-03-05 19:01:30 UTC
This has nothing to do with the ibmusbasm daemon and niether does bug 
112327. Therefore you do not need any source code for ibmusbasm.
The problem is that even WITHOUT ibmusbasm installed, there are USB 
support issues with the RSA2 device. RSA2 is a composite USB device 
and it appears that USB support in linux may not provide adequate 
support for this type of device.

Comment 3 Art Fisher 2004-03-24 18:56:35 UTC
Please provide a status update.

Comment 4 Ernie Petrides 2004-03-30 03:16:05 UTC
I'm reassigning this to our USB maintainer.

Comment 5 Art Fisher 2004-04-12 19:23:55 UTC
Please refer to bugzilla 120645 for a patch which is a possible
resolution for this problem.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 120645 ***

Comment 7 Ernie Petrides 2004-09-18 06:01:35 UTC
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U4
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-20.7.EL).

Comment 8 John Flanagan 2004-12-20 20:54:54 UTC
