Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 517406
Editing partitions during install can cause them to switch drives
Last modified: 2010-07-02 16:40:36 EDT
Description of problem:
In the drive partitioning section of the installer, you can easily create multiple partitions on multiple drives. If you made a mistake on a partition mount point, for example, and you click on it to change the name, if you don't also re-select the drive where it should live (in the allowable drives section) the partition will move to /dev/sda.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a partition on /dev/sdb during install
2. Double-click on partition/Edit it
3. Change the mount point of the partition
4. If you don't select the proper "Allowable Drive", it will default to /dev/sda
The edit partition box should maintain the drive selection once it's been made.

I probably shouldn't close RHEL bugs as duplicates of Fedora bugs.
This should be fixed in anaconda-13.8-1, which should be in the RHEL6 trees in the near future.
Verified on build RHEL6.0-20100512.0 with anaconda-13.21.39-1.el6. Tested in kvm with two disks, when editing partition, only one allowable drive is selected.
Moving to VERIFIED.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta 2 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
