Description Chris Reynolds 2015-10-28 14:57:34 EDT
Description of problem:
The docs at https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.5/html/Installation_Guide/sect-Automated_Installation.html use the wrong vlan syntax.

Current docs
    The vlan parameter sets the VLAN identifier for the network connected to the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager. This parameter should be set where VLANs are in use.

Example =>  vlan=vlan-id

However this fails with the same error seen in this solution https://access.redhat.com/solutions/500843

Error Seen
dracut: FATAL: vlan= requires two parameters
dracut: Refusing to continue

Our doc should show the correct syntax as seen in this solution above
(eg: vlan=eth0.36:eth0)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. follow documentation

Actual results:
dracut: FATAL: vlan= requires two parameters
dracut: Refusing to continue

Expected results:
no error

Awesome! Thanks Julie!
Comment 4 Eyal Edri 2015-11-29 07:23:15 EST
should this be targeted to 3.5.6 rather than 3.5.7?
since 3.5.6 is due to be released this week.
