RHEL7 Unable to Provision After RHEL7-Atomic
Last modified: 2017-10-03 21:26:14 EDT
Description of problem:
After a RHEL7-Atomic installation, LVM or block-level metadata cruft is left on the system. Trying to reprovision on top of this with RHEL7 will fail, the "fix" is to provision RHEL6.x and -then- RHEL7 Anaconda will not bomb out.
This is a repeatable issue on bare-metal hardware (Dell R620).
RHEL6.x and other EL6-based media (or Anaconda) does not have this issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL7-Atomic (via kickstart or other)
2. Try and provision RHEL7
3. Anaconda bombs out.
I was unable to get to the flat file logs (or start and use sshd) from a TTY via the iDRAC interface of the machine we're posting against, only screenshots.

Yeah, this is a known issue with Anaconda/LVM. I commented in another bug, but in some cases you may have to drop to a shell and use `wipefs` beforehand.
I'll let the Anaconda team dedup/assign.
Please attach the logs from /tmp/*log as individual text/plain attachments.
