Description John Wregglesworth 2006-10-02 15:26:06 EDT
Description of problem: Right now, after a user kickstarts a machine to be a
paravirtualization host they need to modify the /etc/grub.conf file so that the
Xen kernel is used by default. We should do this automatically as part of the
paravirtualization host kickstart process, preferably in the %post section of
the kickstart.

Fixed in SVN.

Test Plan.
1. On a 500-beta satellite, sync the beta channels (if necessary).
2. Subscribe a suitable virt-host to the satellite.
3. If necessary, create a virtualization-host kickstart profile.
4. Kickstart the system to the virtualization-host kickstart profile.
5. After the kickstart, check /etc/grub.conf and make sure that default=0 and
that the first entry is the xen kernel.

Verified.  Grub file now looks like:

title Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (2.6.18-1.2747.el5xen)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /xen.gz-2.6.18-1.2747.el5 
        module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2747.el5xen ro root=/dev/myvg/rootvol
        module /initrd-2.6.18-1.2747.el5xen.img
