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
*** Bug 208590 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Fixed in SVN.
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)
module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2747.el5xen ro root=/dev/myvg/rootvol
Closed for RHN 500 Beta.
