Description sdarwin 2019-07-24 19:13:16 UTC
Document URL: 

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/installation_guide/sect-kickstart-syntax

Section Number and Name: 

part or partition (required)  Creates a partition on the system.

Describe the issue: 

Regarding this text: "--grow - Tells the logical volume to grow to fill available space (if any), or up to the maximum size setting, if one is specified."

Suggestions for improvement: 

There are two sections about "--grow". This particular section isn't for "logical volumes", but rather for "partitions".  

It should say "Tells the partition to grow to fill..."

Next, it could also be helpful to explain the feature a bit more. If the configuration were:

part  /home  --size=1024  --grow
part  /opt   --size=1024  --grow

What will that do?

Also: with virtual machines disks, you may have a vm disk which "grows" in real time.  The "grow" being done by kickstart is a one-time action only. It will not grow in real time.  This distinction could (optionally) be mentioned to clarify the functionality overall.
