Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 591064
no command for DNS-lookups available in anaconda
Last modified: 2013-07-04 08:50:05 EDT
Description of problem:
We use nslookup during the %pre-section of anaconda to get the name for a known IP and later to get the IP for a known hostname.
That worked in RHEL5, but in RHEL6 Beta there is no command available to lookup DNS-entries. I searched for commands nslookup, dig and host
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always in anaconda.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from RHEL6 Beta DVD
2. as soon as the graphical installer is started, switch to VT2 with Ctrl-Alt-F2
3. on this shell there is no command available to look up DNS-entries
4. type nslookup <any_host_or_ip>
sh: nslookup: command not found
nslookup should exist; or any equivalent command to do DNS-lookups
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
Martin, we can just add in the nslookup command in upd-instroot for install.img
I have a patch for this, can I get the qa_ack+ ?
nslookup added to version anaconda-13.21.40-1
nslookup is present in anaconda-13.21.45-1.el6. 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
