I was trying to create a host using newly added bootdisk provisioning method from UI. I associated all required fields and simply selected the "Boot disk based" provisioning method. All other fields on "operating system" tab were appeared same as for "network based".
Under "Media selection" -> "Synced contents" was selected and Kickstart media was auto populated. The moment I submitted the create host form, UI raised error on Media under "operating system" tab:
Media can't be blank
Symptoms the same as in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1513327
Regression, 6.3 was fixed in BZ 1513327 but upstream was not yet properly fixed.
This is a bootdisk blocker for 6.4
*** Bug 1663524 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The PRs are just about to be merged. As a workaround apply this:
and this for bootdisk:
That will do it.
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/25680 has been resolved.
Some generic info about Boot disk based provisioning method I got from lzap (thanks!):
- this was provided by community (thanks!)
- this currently works only on VmWare compute resource
- you do not need to download boot disk yourself, this happens automatically when host is created in Satellite (boot disk gets uploaded to VmWare and attached as bootable CD to the VM)
- initial discussion was here: https://community.theforeman.org/t/rfc-uefi-http-booting/8723/12
