Created attachment 423102 [details]
NIC dropdown list

Description of problem:

When attemping FTP install to an FCoE LUN, the converged interface is not selectable under "Add Advanced Target | Add drive"

This prevents FTP install to an FCoE LUN on the 10GbE network.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6.0-20100527.2-Server-x86_64-DVD1.iso

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot install DVD
2. Select URL install
3. Configure Intel 82599 10GbE interface with DHCP (eth5)
4. Enter FTP install URL
5. Select Specialized Storage Devices
6. Add Advanced Target
7. Add FCoE SAN
8. Add Drive
9. Examine the NIC: dropdown list

Actual results:

The original FTP install interface eth5 is not selectable in the NIC list.

Expected results:

eth5 should be selectable.  It should be possible to install via FTP to an FCoE LUN on the same interface.  

Additional info:

Screenshot attached.

The other un-configured Intel 82599 10GbE interface (eth6) is in the NIC list.

This is deliberate we do not support using a converged interface for installation or booting, see bug 486233 comment 33 where this was discussed
with Intel.
