Description Tasos Papaioannou 2016-02-17 11:02:08 EST
Description of problem:

fusor-installer requires the user to enter IP address, Network mask, and Network address for the Satellite's provisioning network:

Modify settings as needed, and then proceed with the installation:
1.      Proceed with the values shown
2.           Network interface | eth1
3.                  IP address | 
4.                    Hostname | fusor.example.com
5.                Network mask | 
6.             Network address | 
7.                Host gateway |

Since the network address is the bit-wise and of the IP address and the Network mask, the network address is unnecessary. If the user leaves it blank and attempts to proceed with the installation, an error message appears:

Unable to proceed because of following errors:
  Network address - Invalid IP address

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.) Run fusor-installer.
2.) See fields for IP address, Network mask, and Network address.

Actual results:

User has to enter the network address in addition to the IP address and network mask.

Expected results:

User only has to enter the IP address and network mask.

Comment 1 Jason Montleon 2016-06-17 09:11:50 EDT
Tasos is this still a problem as it works now? Judging by the menu order in the original comment it looks like this was before we started auto-filling values.

If you enter the hostname, IP address, and netmask today all the DHCP info is pre-populated. Even though I don't think it's been tested, it should be possible to use a different network for provisioning (say setting up a dhcp helper/proxy) so I'm not sure completely removing it makes sense. Especially if QE or someone else is able to test such a scenario and it works as expected.
Comment 2 Tasos Papaioannou 2016-06-21 16:28:02 EDT
In the current install, 'DHCP Network address' is automatically populated once the 'IP address' and 'Network mask' fields have been set. I'm find with marking this as verified.

Tested on QCI-1.2-RHEL-7-20160621.t.0.
