Description roarora 2019-05-06 23:19:44 UTC
Created attachment 1564848 [details]

Description of problem:
ip= netmask= gateway= dns= options were deprecated since RHEL 7 but are still being used in Kickstart default iPXE.

RHEL 7 Still accepted those but RHEL 8 fails to build with Error : 'ip=X.X.X.X'\nSorry,unknown value X.X.X.X

So all build methods involving iPXE fail 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Use any of provisioning methods involving iPXE like Auto attach bootdisk or per Host ISO

Comment 3 Bryan Kearney 2019-05-07 18:02:10 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/26749 has been resolved.

Comment 7 Ramesh Daryani 2019-08-07 05:30:29 UTC
I am using boot options to assign the ip address via ip=, however still it is failing. The same is working fine for rhel7 kickstart installation.

Comment 8 Peter Dragun 2019-08-30 08:54:23 UTC
Verified on Sat 6.6 snap 17. Provisioning RHEL 8 now works without any errors. Tested also with RHEL 7.7.
