Description Martin Lichtin 2001-04-27 00:51:25 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22enterprise i686)

Kickstart --ondisk option does not recognize Mylex "rd/c0d0" partition name

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a Mylex RAID card, configure two logical disks.
2.  Configure partitioning in ks.cfg as
    part / --size 2048 --ondisk rd/c0/d0
3. Run "linux ks=floppy".
   anaconda will fail with the error message.
   "Autopartitioning failed."
   or similar...

Can you attach the kickstart file you are using?

Comment 3 Martin Lichtin 2001-05-02 21:30:19 UTC
I tried adding --asprimary today, as there's this other bug with anaconda's
partitioning algorithm, it doesn't use all available primary partitions.

part / --size 3072 --asprimary --ondisk rd/c0d0
part swap --size 256 --ondisk rd/c0d0
part /work --size 1 --grow  --ondisk rd/c0d0
part /tmp --size 1024 --asprimary --ondisk rd/c0d0
part /var --size 1024 --asprimary --ondisk rd/c0d0

But that didn't help either, so it really looks like the --ondisk just doesn't 
like the "rd/c0do" syntax.

Comment 4 Martin Lichtin 2001-05-04 22:10:48 UTC
I finally found the problem, one has to
say --ondisk rd/c0d0p 

Thanks a lot for not helping me with this problem.
I thought we had 90 days support, but it seems you
ignore your customers.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-05-07 19:54:43 UTC
I apologize for not giving this bug report more attention.  However, bugzilla is
separate from the Customer Support department.  Bugzilla is for reporting bugs
in the software and is open to anyone at any time...not just paying customers
and not just for a limited time span.  As such, I hope you can appreciate the
volume of reports that we get...it's not trivial.  I was not aware that you were
trying to access the 90 days customer support that you are entitled to.  The
website for that is www.redhat.com/support.

I think this Problem happens not only on the Mylex Controller, its a general 
RAID Controller Problem.
