Description Fabian Deutsch 2017-01-11 12:14:32 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently installclasses have some logic to decide if they should be used or not.

Sometimes however it makes sense of the installclass (which contains product specific configurations like branding and autopartitioning layout) can be set within the kickstart.

If this feature was a avilable, and the stock RHEL installation iso contained the product images of additional products, then the same ISO could be used to install multiple products.

This is currently not possible i.e. when the RHEL installer shall be used to install RHVH using PXE (because in that case the buildstamp file is not available).

The command installclass can be defined in the %anaconda section now.

Comment 5 Peter Kotvan 2017-12-11 11:08:13 UTC
It's not possible to verify this directly since we don't have such isos as mentioned in the bug description. However the changes are present in anaconda- Moving to verified, sanityonly.
