Description of problem:
With RHEL6.0-20100524.n.0_nfs-Server-x86_64, I got this:

How reproducible:
Just install above distro on machine intel-s3e3144-03.rhts.eng.nay.redhat.com. Or perhaps on similar machines below:

intel-s3e3144-02.rhts.eng.nay.redhat.com 	53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI

intel-s3e3144-04.rhts.eng.nay.redhat.com 	53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI
intel-s3e3144-05.rhts.eng.nay.redhat.com 	53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI

Comment 1 Bill Peck 2010-05-27 09:31:13 EDT
This looks like a custom kickstart you passed in.  Are you sure the kickstart is valid?

Thanks
Comment 2 Bill Peck 2010-05-27 09:35:12 EDT
I did a quick look on the nay lab controller and there is a custom rhts_partitions for this host.

If this is not working correctly then you need to open a ticket with eng-ops@redhat.com

I can't do anything here.

Closing.
