Description Vadim Grinco 2008-12-09 11:38:09 EST
Description of problem:
It is not possible to non-interactively kick RHEL5-{Client,Server}-U3-Beta from nfs://bigpapi.bos.redhat.com/vol/engineering/redhat/released/RHEL-5-{Client,Server}/U3-Beta/x86_64/os on a Dell PE1950. It
always prompts for network settings.

How reproducible:
Generate a non-interactive kickstart file and kick RHEL5-{Client,Server}-U3-Beta from it or run `test_lab_machine.py -S rhts.redhat.com -t /distribution/inventory -u jgranado@redhat.com -a x86_64 -m dell-pe1950-01.rhts.bos.redhat.com -r -f RedHatEnterpriseLinuxServer5 -f RedHatEnterpriseLinuxClient5` if you have rhts-scheduler-workflows installed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Generate a non interactive kickstart
2. Run installation with "ks=path_to_your_ks.cfg ksdevice=link"
3. Watch...

Actual results:
A prompt to configure networking:
