Description Michael Rommel 2007-06-03 20:42:43 UTC
Description of problem:

While configuring iSCSI, anaconda crashes. This is while using 
a DHCP address, I didn't try a static address (reported in other
bug reports).

anaconda complains in the exception details, after attempting
iscsiadm: "no record found", see attached message.

Using a shell on the system and running exactly the same command,
it prints:,1 iqn.2007-03.net-layer-7.blackbird:storage.seagull

which is the iSCSI target that has been set up.

Affected version: standard Fedora 7 anaconda installer

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on "Advanced storage configuration"
2. Add iSCSI target
3. Enter as IP Address and
iqn.2007-03.net-layer-7.blackbird:storage.seagull as target
Actual results:

Exception occurred

Expected results:

Mount of the iSCSI target as disk

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2007-06-04 14:10:49 UTC
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.  The fix may also be included
in an updates.img which would allow you to use the released version of anaconda
for working around this bug.  If that happens, I will update this bug report to
explain it.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2007-06-06 17:47:43 UTC
This bug is now addressed by an updates image.  It is available for download at:


Instructions for using updates disks are located at:


If possible, please test this image out and report if it fixes your issue or
not.  Once we are confident that your issue is solved by this image, we are
going to announce it more publicly.  This fix may also be included in an updated
anaconda package later for people who are making custom Fedora distributions. 
Thanks for your time.
