Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1252756
repository definition nor product branding works with nfsiso
Last modified: 2015-10-01 12:02:15 EDT
Description of problem:
When I boot F23 Alpha Server from PXE with inst.repo=nfs:.../os/ , everything works correctly, I see "Fedora Server" logo in the left bar on the welcome screen. But if I boot it with inst.repo=nfs:...iso/DVD.iso , anaconda loses all branding - there is no "Fedora Server" logo and the left bar is generic gray.
I verified that both paths (os/ and DVD.iso) contain product.img (I assume it contains the branding) and the files are the same.
It seems that product.img is not loaded when booted over nfsiso?
PXE config with working branding:
LABEL Fedora 23 Alpha RC2 Server x86_64
PXE config with non-working branding:
LABEL Fedora 23 Alpha RC2 Server x86_64
I attach logs from the nfsiso run.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F23 Alpha Server x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot Server from PXE with nfs:.../DVD.iso
2. see no branding

I spoke too soon. Not only that branding doesn't work, but repository definition doesn't work either. It should mount the local repository, but instead it defaults to Closest Mirror. Also, probably due to missing repo+branding, it defaults to Minimal install.
I see this in program.log:
08:26:03,744 INFO program: Running... mount -t nfs -o nolock nfs.englab.brq.redhat.com:/pub/fedora/fedora-alt/stage/23_Alpha_RC2/Server/x86_64/iso /run/install/source
08:26:04,301 DEBUG program: Return code: 0
And this in packaging log:
08:26:03,744 INFO packaging: mounting nfs.englab.brq.redhat.com:/pub/fedora/fedora-alt/stage/23_Alpha_RC2/Server/x86_64/iso: on /run/install/source
08:26:04,411 ERR packaging: base repo (nfs/file:///run/install/source/Fedora-Server-DVD-x86_64-23_Alpha.iso) not valid -- removing it
So it seems anaconda is mounting iso/ directory as the base dir instead of mounting the DVD.iso file itself.

anaconda hub screen with nfsiso
This is how it looks in the main hub when booting with nfsiso.
Attaching a fresh set of log files, including basic initialization (not just the welcome screen).

Proposing as a blocker due to:
"The installer must be able to use all supported local and remote package and installer sources. "
Nfsiso is officially supported, even though the documentation is lacking a bit in details:
