Description of problem:

ignoredisk kickstart option now shows a critical error if a disk does not exist. This is a change from rhel5 where this check did not exist. We're using a kickstart file that is used for many types of hardware, in the ignoredisk we usually put the second disk like /dev/sdb, /dev/cciss/c0d1. Now we have to edit the kickstart if that device does not happen to exist on the target machine.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2010-05-06 08:47:02 EDT
Correct - kickstart is now less forgiving of errors, as a way to help you catch problems before you end up doing things to disks that you didn't want to do.  It's acting more like a real language now and less like an ad-hoc system.
