Description James Bowes 2008-03-07 14:07:30 EST
We created an external kickstart distribution pointing at porkchop's ftp server
(for rhel 5). Any kickstarts run against this would hang during the step where
they grab the initrd and vmlinuz from the kickstart tree.
Comment 2 Mike McCune 2009-02-16 17:24:17 EST
we are no longer supporting external kickstart distributions.  All distros must be synced and located *on* the Satellite itself.  this is a new requirement of the cobbler integration.

I'll make sure this gets release-noted.
Comment 3 John Ha 2009-02-25 02:18:58 EST
So, I've added the following release note. Let me know if it's okay:

 RHN Satellite no longer supports kickstart distributions located outside of the
 Satellite server. All distributions must be synced and located on the Satellite
 server itself.
Comment 4 Brandon Perkins 2009-07-22 14:52:35 EDT
We need a re-review of the release note by Justin.
Comment 5 Brandon Perkins 2009-07-22 14:53:20 EDT
Justin, please review Comment #3 From  John Ha, this doesn't sound accurate to us now.
Comment 6 Mike McCune 2009-07-22 14:55:33 EDT
comment #3 still stands.  Moving ON_QA
Comment 7 Justin Sherrill 2009-07-22 23:12:08 EDT
Yep, looks good to me, removing need info.
Comment 8 Brad Buckingham 2009-07-23 09:35:21 EDT
