# TREE RHEL5.2-Server-20080225.2/ia64

During a non-ibft iscsi installation I see the following stderr messages near
the end of the install.  This installation was done over a serial console.

I suspect we are not capturing iscsiadm output when attempting to process and
iBFT firmware reads.

                 +-------------+ Post Install +--------------+

                 | Performing post install configuration...iscsiadm: Could not
read fw values.

              iscsiadm: Could not read fw

Proposed fix, adding stderr= keyword argument to iutil.execWithCapture() calls
Comment 3 Joel Andres Granados 2008-03-28 11:23:00 EDT
had a quick look at the code and I don't think that the patch in comment 1
really fixes the issue.  I'm basing my opinion on the fact that the
execWithCaputre redirects stderr to stdout by default.  Moreover stdout is
redirected to the rc variable. so nothing should appear on the screan.

have to look more closely into this.

just made a test with nightly-Server-20080327/x86_64, I did not see the issue.
Comment 7 James Laska 2008-03-28 15:15:04 EDT
I've done several text-mode kickstart installs on ia64 ... and didn't observe
this problem.

However, to feel good I'd like to do a manual text-mode kickstart, but cannot
because bug#437773 is blocking me from adding an iSCSI device in text-mode.
Comment 8 Andy Lindeberg 2008-10-01 17:10:46 EDT
jlaska, can you do so now that 437773 has been fixed?
Comment 9 James Laska 2008-10-03 09:06:01 EDT
I can confirm that this was resolved.
