Description Brian J. Atkisson 2009-03-02 19:50:37 EST
Description of problem:

register-ds-admin.pl does not seem to work correctly in silent mode or process input from a file.  Running register-ds-admin.pl -s -f file.inf (and --silent --file=file.inf) runs through the normal interactive options.  It also does not read in options provided by a file.  Another oddity is that when you run through the interactive options with --keepcache, it generates two inf files, but there is no way to pass two files back to register-ds-admin.pl for silent mode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): redhat-ds-admin-8.0.4-3.el5dsrv

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'register-ds-admin.pl -s -f filename.inf' 
Actual results: get prompted for input and it does not appear to read in file contents.

Expected results: A silent install, prompting for only needed information.

Additional info: I ran through this several times with Rich Megginson, who asked me to file a bug on it.
