Description Samuel Kielek 2004-09-03 15:50:51 UTC
Description of problem:
Installing RHEL3 U2 using NFS with GUI and using LVM does not work.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose NFS install method
2. Create /boot as ext3 partition on dasda
3. Create LVM PV using remaining space
4. Define VG for / (ext3)
5. Configure remaining install options to your preference
6. When the installer gets to the point where it sets up the
partitions and begins formating, anaconda will have an exception error .
Actual results:
The LVM configuration is being created on the initial installer image,
instead of on the new system image.

For example, if you defined a PV on /dev/dasda called 'rootvg' in disk
druid, it creates the following:


Expected results:

It should have created:

I just re-read my original comments are realized how confusing they
are. It was a long Friday and I was doing too many things at the same
time I guess... My configuration was with 2 dasd devices (a and b). I
used these two devices to create a physical volume. There was only one
volume group, 'rootvg'. I first tried to create a number of logical
volumes such as 'lvroot' for /, 'lvhome' for /home, 'lvopt' for /opt,
etc. It would get to the point where it would create the PV and the
VG, but would fail on creating the LV's. Anaconda would error with
unable locate /dev/rootvg/lvroot.

I was able to get the install to complete by manually configuring lvm
from the installation image shell and only configuring a single LV,
'lvroot'. After I did this, I could re-start the installation and only
had to define the mount points in disk druid as it had the vlm
configuation I defined manually. After this, no exception errors. It
formatted lvroot and installed all the packages.
