Description Xixi 2010-05-20 01:39:27 UTC
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 15:25:56 UTC
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 11:57:00 UTC
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 14:59:34 UTC
Partition Details were stored/displayed in the same order like entered.

STAGE VALIDATED on Satellite-5.4.0-RHEL5-re20101015.0.
