Description of problem:

i use RHAS3U3 to install several similar systems with two old 4 GB 
i choose autoinstall and let anaconda do the autopartitioning which 
results in:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1             4.0G  1.5G  2.3G  40% /
/dev/sda1              99M   15M   79M  16% /boot
/dev/sda2             512M

anaconda-ks.cfg which i wanted to use for further kickstart 
installations instead shows me the following:

clearpart --all --drives=sda,sdb
part /boot --fstype "ext3" --size=100 --ondisk=sda
part / --fstype "ext3" --size=1024 --grow --ondisk=sda
part swap --size=256 --grow --maxsize=512 --ondisk=sda

so, only sda is used instead of sdb for / as on the native install i 
performed. also SWAP space is only half of the original ...

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install with multiple (2) disks, allow autopartition to use them 
2.look at resulting anaconda-ks.cfg

Actual Results:  clearpart --all --drives=sda,sdb
part /boot --fstype "ext3" --size=100 --ondisk=sda
part / --fstype "ext3" --size=1024 --grow --ondisk=sda
part swap --size=256 --grow --maxsize=512 --ondisk=sda

Expected Results:  clearpart --all --drives=sda,sdb
part /boot --fstype "ext3" --size=100 --ondisk=sda
part / --fstype "ext3" --size=1024 --grow --ondisk=sdb
part swap --size=256 --grow --maxsize=512 --ondisk=sda

We're not reproducing this here.  Can you provide /tmp/anaconda.log and
/tmp/syslog from within the installer?

i have reproduced this problem very easy by just installing a default system 
within VMWare using 2 scsi disks of size 4GB.

logfiles are available.

Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2007-03-14 19:38:21 UTC
Can you please test this with RHEL5 and see if it's still a problem on that
release?  If you are still experiencing it on RHEL5, feel free to reopen this
bug and we can target a fix for an update release.
