Description Justin Sherrill 2009-05-18 17:02:25 EDT
The kernel options and post kernel options can be set at the distro level within cobbler.  We should expose this within our UI.
Comment 1 Brandon Perkins 2009-05-19 11:44:27 EDT
Justin, please provide more explicit steps (perhaps with example data).  Cliff and I couldn't follow exactly what we're talking about here.  And we would need this information for a test plan anyway.
Comment 2 Justin Sherrill 2009-05-26 17:43:58 EDT

Basically there's no way to set "kernel options" at the distro create/edit page.  Added in the commit above.  You should be able to see those kernel options by running "cobbler distro report --name=NAME"  from the command line. 

Any "kernel options" are used at provisioning time, and "post kernel options" are kernel options set in grub after the kickstart has occured (for reboot).
