Description wes hayutin 2009-05-11 12:53:54 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.
Comment 2 Justin Sherrill 2009-05-11 18:03:39 EDT
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

Comment 5 Tomas Lestach 2009-09-10 07:24:56 EDT
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
