Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 500202
Provisioning, non-xen-guest kickstarts hang at end of install due to cobbler snippet post_install_network_config
Last modified: 2009-09-10 14:16:01 EDT
Description of problem:
sat 5/7.1 build on rhel 5.
1. register a rhel 4 or rhel 5 system
2. create a regular (non xen/kvm) ks profile
3. kickstart the box
results.. hangs at the very end after starting rhnd
work around, console in and reboot
expected results: kickstart completes
speaking w/ Justin, one of the snippets is waiting for some data.
looks like the prob is around line 100 w/ modprobe and the interface name
So this was fixed upstream in cobbler (commit 93bb34c0), need to track it down and see why it's not in webqa.
To clarify the steps to reproduce:
1. Register a RHEL 5 machine and set it up as a virt host (making sure that the xen kernel is booted)
2. Try to re-provision the machine.
3. %post section will hang
patch backported in 3rd party git:
Followed test plan from Comment#2.
(I re-provisioned the xen host twice
- once to achieve virt host (1)
- 2nd time to do step (2)
Successfully re-provisioned a xen host in both cases. Machine didn't hang and after every ks it was ready to use.
Right after ks:
# uname -r
# xm list
Name ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State Time(s)

Stage validated -> RELEASE_PENDING
