In kvm installation of RedHat 5.4 guest OS falls if hdd raw disks mounted like scsi
Last modified: 2010-12-03 19:08:16 EST
Description of problem:
I've got system: AMD Phenom X4 CPU with 8GB RAM, and Fedora 12 installed on it.
I'm trying to install RHEL 5.4 like guest OS in KVM (with virt-manager)
I wanted to made RAID-5 with scsi disks, so i create 3 virtual disks with virt-manager and mounted it in RHEL 5.4 guest OS properties.
Installation of RHEL gust starting well. In partitioning disk step I've made this (with created raw image disks):
md0 - / ext3 raid.01 raid.02 raid.03
sda1 - /boot ext3 100Mb
sda2 - raid.01 raid 10Gb
sdb1 - raid.02 raid 10Gb
sdb2 - /swap swap 1024Mb
sdc1 - raid.03 raid 10Gb
Installation falls when anaconda is trying to format "/" partition.
If these raw disks mounted like IDE disks, then there is no error and installation do well
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1. Make 3 disks with virt-manager ()
2. Mount them to RHEL guest OS like scsi dives in guest OS properties
3. Start installation of RHEL 5.4 guest OS
4. Make partition like seen before
Error when anaconda is trying to format "/"
There is no error
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
