How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a kickstart install specifing iscsi with the --target option

Comment 3 Tim Verhoeven 2007-12-10 20:39:10 UTC
Patch 283261 (for anaconda) also contains the iscsi authentication support that
I reported in bug 402431.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the patches, and sorry for not responding to this bug for such a long long time. I'm a (relatively) new anaconda developer, and I'm responsible for anaconda's iscsi support now a days.

For 5.4 the iscsi code has been completely rewritten, so I'm pretty sure your patches no longer apply.

Given the long silence, and that no one else has requested the same feature. I wonder if you are still interested in having a working --target option for the iscsi kickstart command ?

Regards,

Hans
