Description of problem:
While installing RHEL6 Beta2 on Dell R900 with DRAC which has Virtual Media enabled, the virtual disk is assigned to /dev/sda while the RAID is set to /dev/sdb. But in previous beta's the Virtual Floppy that the DRAC presents has been set to /dev/sdb.
This is kind of important to those of us who use kickstart's to build the machines.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable Virtual Media provided by DRAC
2. start installing RHEL6 Beta2
Virtual Floppy that the DRAC presents is set to /dev/sda
For the Virtual Floppy that the DRAC presents should be set to /dev/sdb and not /dev/sda.

This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
Since this problem is important for kickstart installation, so could you consider setting it to blocker?
The kernel can assign "sd" names in any order.
Doesn't RHEL 6 Anaconda (and kickstart) provide a way to deal with this? (Sorry, I am not familiar with it.)

You can use the ignoredisk command in the kickstart file.
You can also specify drives using the by-id, by-label, by-path, or by-uuid names in /dev/disk as well as use wildcards to specify groups of drives to ignore.
looks like there is a way to deal with this issue, so
I'll close this BZ, on the assumption that the solution in comment 5 is acceptable. If it is not, the reopen.
