Description of problem:
This bug is related to #119328. I would like to create CCISS logical
arrays using the cpqacuxe utility that HP provides. This is a command
line utility that I have succesfully run in %pre. The problem is that
anaconda must do some hdd checks when it is first run, and not after
%pre is run, because it always tells me:
The message is:
"An error has occurred - no valid devices were
found on which to create new file systems. Please check your
hardware for the cause of this problem."
This is part of partedUtils.py in the checkNoDisks function.
It would be great if there was an option to re-probe suitable hdd's
for installation after %pre is run. It works flawlessly if I run the
utility to configured the logical drives before anaconda is launched.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the cpqacuxe utilty in %pre to configure CCISS logical drives
2. Watch anaconda whine about "No valid devices.."
Internal RFE bug #119722 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Thank you for the suggestion. It was passed along to product
management, but not committed for a future release.
