Description Adam Cetnerowski 2008-01-03 08:07:09 EST
Description of problem:
When RH is installed on a RAID configuration and other RAID configurations are
configured in system, the OS fails to boot. 

How reproducible:
Always

- first RAID uses only 100GB (strip=64k)
- second RAID uses the rest of capacity and is 128k strip
2. Install RHEL(eg. Server 32) on the first RAID setup.
  
Actual results:
OS does not boot. 

Expected results:
OS should boot normally.

"Red Hat nash version 5.1.19.6 starting" ... No RAID sets.

Reassigning to anaconda, probably wrong nash script generated during installation.

Can you test with the latest 5.3 snapshot?  There's been a large number of RAID-related bugs and fixes going into the last couple snapshots, so there's a high likelihood this bug is fixed.  If you are still seeing problems, attaching the /var/log/anaconda.log and /var/log/anaconda.syslog from the installed system (which you can get by booting via rescue mode) to this bug report would be very helpful.  Thanks.

We can't reproduced this bug on snap 5.

Based on comment 4, I am closing this as fixed in rhel 5.3
