Description Xixi 2010-05-19 21:39:27 EDT
Description of problem:
When typing commands on the partitioning part of kickstarts in the satellite, each time we save they are being reordered, snippets always being put last.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite 5.3.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a snippet containing a partition line, e.g.,
  partition swap --recommended
2. add the snippet on the top of the partitionning field of a kickstart profile.
For example:
partition /boot --fstype=ext3 --size=200
partition pv.01 --size=1000 --grow

volgroup myvg pv.01

logvol / --vgname=myvg --name=rootvol --size=1000 --grow"

3. click save.
Actual results:
The order has changed and the snippet has been moved to the bottom of the list of operations. E.g., -
"partition /boot --fstype=ext3 --size=200
partition pv.01 --size=1000 --grow

volgroup myvg pv.01

logvol / --vgname=myvg --name=rootvol --size=1000 --grow


Expected results:
The order of the line is kept as it was inputted as it will impact the partition creation unless we get very detailed.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Partha Aji 2010-08-24 11:25:56 EDT
Should be resolved as of

To test this install the following rpms..
spacewalk-schema-1.2.5-1 or greater
spacewalk-java-1.2.14-1 or greater
Comment 2 Petr Sklenar 2010-10-08 07:57:00 EDT
procedure up to comment 0 leads to ks file:

partition swap --recommended

part /boot --fstype=ext3 --size=200 
part pv.01 --size=1000 --grow 
part swap --size=1000   --maxsize=2000 
volgroup myvg pv.01 
logvol / --vgname=myvg --name=rootvol --size=1000 --grow
which is OK, its in the same place like snippet
Verified with Satellite-5.4.0-RHEL5-re20101001.1
Comment 3 Tomas Lestach 2010-10-26 10:59:34 EDT
