Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 59459
Installer hangs when installing over HTTP from IIS
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:03 EDT
Description of Problem:
The installer hangs just after retrieving netstg1.img from the HTTP server when Keep-Alive is enabled.
Use IIS with W2K
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on HTTP Keep-Alives in IIS Administator (is on by default)
2. Install over HTTP from this server
It works with Keep-Alives turned off, of course.
Does this work any better with Skipjack, the beta for our next release?
I won't have the resources in the next weeks to try. When you have all the
prerequisites, it's very easy to reproduce.
The same happens with Skipjack, I just tried it.
