Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 601644
anaconda should install tools to boot the system

if dracut would not pull in:
they might be missing, if required. So either anaconda should pull them in, if required to setup any disk device or the component should be in the core group and installed every time.
I don't see either dhclient (should be required by dracut-network) or plymouth (no idea) as anaconda's problem, the rest I've a patch for.
the 0531.1 build is old. Latest one is 0603.1. The bug you describe is 598509 - I've used the same tree and same steps to reproduce as you when originally filed. lvm package was in the optional repository for WebServer and not pulled in during installation that's why boot failed.
All the dependencies are now required by dracut-004-20.1.el6, see:
With the latest build (0603.1) WebServer minimal installation in KVM works as expected.

This is why I filed the bug! The requirements in dracut should not be needed.
You cannot deinstall dracut. So, all the requirements of dracut cannot be removed from the system.
There is no need to install lvm, dmraid, mdadm, dhclient, etc. on every system!!!
dracut should be pulling in plymouth; it's an initramfs component common to every initramfs.

right, it will, although initscripts might also require plymouth to work properly.
So, these are left to be pulled in by anaconda on demand
This is fixed in anaconda-13.21.51-1, moving to modified.
Verified on RHEL6.0-20100701.3 WebServer and ComputeNode x86_64
