Description Damon T. Miller 2004-07-10 22:22:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
When provisioning a RedHat AS 3 server using Kickstart via HTTP, the
GET is incorrectly formed.  This causes webservers doing strict HTTP
compliance checks (such as IIS 6.0) to return a 404 - "Bad Request". 
Judging from an Ethereal capture, I think the problem lies in the
termination of the request itself.  Specifically, instead of "\r\n",
the request is terminated with "\t\n".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Configure a provisioning environment using IIS 6.0 and KickStart
over HTTP.

2.  Initiate the process.    

Actual Results:  Of course, step #1 is a rather lengthy process and
varies from vendor to vendor, however this is reproducible every time
when using IIS 6.0.

Expected Results:  Kickstart should have successfully retrieved the
.cfg file and proceeded with unattended installation.

Additional info:

Here is a text dump of the relevant section from an Ethereal packet
