Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 511095
Kickstart "kernel options" only allows a key to be set once
Last modified: 2012-09-21 05:34:13 EDT
Description of problem:
I am attempting to kickstart a RHTS box. I want to keep the kernel options used during it's initial setup.
The box was kickstarted with these options:
I attempted to set them in the /rhn/kickstart/KickstartDetailsEdit.do page.
When I submit the form, the first "console=tty0" option/value is dropped.
This is verified when looking at the kickstart file itself.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new kickstart profile
2. Edit both kernel and post kernel options
3. Set string to: "console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200"
4. Submit form
kernel params come back as: "console=ttyS0,115200"
Also need to verify: Actual kickstart file at rhn/kickstart/KickstartFileDownload.do?ksid= is rendered with correct options
Cobbler cannot currently do this. As such - we will not be able to provide this capability for 530 GA. Moving off proposed for 530.
I remember this was fixed in upstream within Bug 672652
