Description Mike McGrath 2010-06-30 20:48:11 UTC
Description of problem:

I've got an IBM X series M/T - 794772U that, upon boot throws a network error making unattended reinstalls impossible.

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

Whatever ships with the RHEL6 beta 2 today

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with the following appended parameters:
2. ks initrd=images/RHEL/6/x86_64/initrd.img ksdevice=eth0 ip=dhcp console=ttyS0,115200n8 method=blah ks=blah
Actual results:

Anaconda stops with a prompt "Network Error" and the console button is "Retry".  Upon clicking retry and selecing eth0, everything boots fine.

Expected results:

It shouldn't throw an error.

Is there any way you can get in front of this machine, or is it serial console access only?  If the former, can you attach a screenshot of tty3 and tty4?  If the latter, can you hit the error, proceed to stage2, and then pull /tmp/syslog off and attach to this bug?

syslog of the install error

I might be able to get the other TTY's but this is a new host and the remote management card is busted, I've contacted the vendor and they are shipping one overnight.  If the syslog doesn't tell enough of the story, it might be a bit but I think I can get the other ttys.

Ugh, this was a tree failure on my part (I was testing against beta 1, beta 2 doesn't do this anymore.  Sorry for the noise)
