After following the guidelines specified in https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/openshift_container_platform/4.1/html/installing/installing-on-vsphere to created Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS (as specified in step 4.1.9 in the reference doc), RHCOS VM does not get created.

Please check the Image attached to see where the boot process gets stuck and I could not go any further.

Comment 2 Steve Milner 2019-07-26 19:49:05 UTC
Thanks for the report. Looking at the attached file it seems as if /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi is not present (or possibly unreadable). I pulled down the related image and the file does exist and seems to be readable after the generation unit runs:

[core@coreos ~]$ ls -lahZ /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi 
-rw-rw-r--. 1 root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 50 Jul 26 19:29 /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi
[core@coreos ~]$

but it's possible the unit is racing with the file generation.

Comment 4 Steve Milner 2019-07-29 18:22:16 UTC
It looks like /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi is not available in early boot which is causing the issue. I've opened https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1734144 with our storage folks for review.

Comment 12 Steve Milner 2019-08-08 16:00:47 UTC
From my understanding this issue ended up getting resolved and the fix looks to be about adding in more documentation around specific installation types. I've raised this with our docs folks.

Marking as closed. If there is still an issue please do reopen!
