Description of problem:
With REHL4 U0 and RHEL3 U5 we added an option 'ignoredisk' to kickstart.
We should describe this in the sag under '1.4. Kickstart Options'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. find out about the 'ignoredisk' option
2. read section '1.4. Kickstart Options' of the System Administration Guide
3. read /usr/share/doc/anaconda*/*
Actual Results: no mention of the option
Expected Results: all options should be documented
(in the RHEL3 SAG, we need to point out that this is only U5 and newer)
Allows you to have anaconda ignore disks.
This is useful if you use autopartition and want to be sure some disks are ignored. This is also useful if you have multiple paths to your disks.
ignoredisk -- drives=<drive1>,<drive2>,...
where <driveN> is one of sda,sdb,...,hda,... etc.
Have a look at BZs 163911, 156356 (this says RHEL4 U1, but it also works in U0), 140464 and 79016 for discussions of this option.
Made the requested change to the RHEL 4 manual, but not to the RHEL 3 manual.
I believe that it's here:
Is that sufficient?
