Description Mike McGrath 2010-06-30 14:44:03 EDT
Description of problem:

I've got a /dev/sd[a-c].  In that I have a partition on sdb and sdc which are raided as /dev/md0 and mounted on my /boot.  Anaconda was attempting to install the boot loader on /dev/sdb instead of /dev/md0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Whatever version comes with the RHEL6 beta 2 that launched today.

How reproducible:

Only tested once so far.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdc1
2.  Software raid them (raid1) at /boot ext4
3.  click next to the boot loader screen.
Actual results:

"Install boot loader on /dev/sdb" was displayed

Expected results:

"Install boot loader on /dev/md0"

Additional info:

This was done with a kickstart install but we had the storage section blank so we could do that manually.

Nope, looks like what I thought would work does in fact not work.  The behavior it's showing seems to be correct.
