Description Fabian Deutsch 2017-01-11 12:02:33 UTC
Description of problem:
For RHVH we are using a custom installclass to set the autopartitioning, this works fine.

But as soon as the user chooses manul partitioning, he is completely free in doing the partitioning. The issue is that RHVH has a few (4?) constraints like
- Needs to be thin LV for /
- /boot must be >=1GB
- /var must be on a separate LV or partition
- /var must be at least 10GB

We would like to have a way to express these constraints from the installclass.

A pull request with a fix is available here: https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/972

One of the commits adds required constraints to the class OvirtBaseInstallClass. Is it all right or do you use your own install class?

Comment 2 Ryan Barry 2017-03-01 13:05:52 UTC
That's the installclass we use, and the changes look good, so +1 from me.

Comment 4 Peter Kotvan 2017-06-01 07:51:31 UTC
The patch is present in anaconda anaconda- Moving to VERIFIED (SanityOnly).
