Description of problem: Kickstart template for VDO volumes needed as RHEL 7.5 ships vdo. Current kickstart file is only for LVM on physical or virtual disks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): satellite 6.3.1 / RHEL 7.5
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to hosts > provisioning templates
2. No kickstart template for vdo type of volumes.
Actual results: No kickstart template for vdo present
Expected results: Need kickstart template for vdo present
If you need a customer to beta test this feature. I have a demo Satellite 6.3.1 that can be used.
I haven't found any documentation on Anaconda supporting this as a kickstart parameter. In theory you could modify your kickstart %package to install vdo utilities and do "vdo create ..." in %post. But to get "built-in" support, we'd need to have the support in Anaconda first. I'll open a blocker issue in a minute.
Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and while we recognize that it is a valid request, we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. This is due to other priorities for the product, and not a reflection on the request itself. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please do not reopen. Instead, feel free to contact Red Hat Technical Support. Thank you.
