Description Jeff Lane 2005-03-22 21:33:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; WOPr)

Description of problem:
After performing a kickstart install using the ispec generaged kickstart scripts, on machines with multiple NICs, only eth0 has the proper BOOTPROTO line added to the ifcfg script.  All other ifcfg scripts are missing the BOOTPROTO line.  

So, when the tests run automatically after the install, the network test always fails because every NIC beyond eth0 never gets a dhcp assigned IP address.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.perform ispec generated kickstart install
2.run tests automatically

Actual Results:  The network test fails because one or more NICs can not communicate with the network due to them not being configured with dhcp

Expected Results:  either a %post that includes the BOOTPROTO line in ifcfg (or just appends it to any ifcfg-eth scripts found, OR a prompt during the interactive portion of the automatic test run (before or right after USB tests) prompting tester to check ifcfg scripts.  If I run the tests manually using redhat-ready, I can edit the scripts before NETWORK runs, and the test is successful every time.
