When installing RHEL 6 with the DVD connected to a remote Dell PowerEdge M610 server via the DRAC6 Virtual Media feature, right after creating the filesystems it stops with an error, "Unable to read group information from repositories".

   drive to the remote Dell server via its DRAC Virtual Media
2. boot from Virtual DVD and begin installation
Actual results:

anaconda-13.21.56 was built on June 30, and since then there have been quite a large number of fixes that have gone into anaconda.  Can you please ask them to retest with a recent snapshot and see if they are still seeing this problem?  Thanks.
