Description of problem:
Robert Meiners <meiners@gonicus.de> reports that:

I working for your College Joachim Kunze from Germany.
I already tried  the latest Beta of the RHAS and found 
a Bug in the Config Script.

In the Section you verify the Hostnames you grep for the 
/inet adr/
but in the German installation the Output of ifconfig is

'inet Adresse'

we test it successfully with removing 'adr'. So grep only
vor /inet/ and it works.

with best regards

Robert Meiners

I cannot find this string anywhere in the anaconda sources - which script are
you referring to?
Comment 2 Tom Coughlan 2002-04-24 16:28:55 EDT
I apologize. This customer is in Germany, and the communication is not too good.
His problem occurred when he tried to install the Cluster Manager, not the o.s.
as I originally thought.

The string is actually  /inet addr/ and it is in cluconfig.

Comment 3 Tim Burke 2002-04-25 19:58:20 EDT
Thank you very much for bringing this problem and corresponding fix to our
attention.

The implications of this bug are that when running cluconfig, the user will be
presented with a warning message (which shouldn't appear).  Here if they agree
with the default of proceeding, then everything will configure correctly.

Enter hostname of the cluster member on heartbeat channel 0 [cluh]: 
Looking for host cluh (may take a few seconds)...
Hostname does not map to any interface. Keep your selection? [yes]: 

We'll definitely put your patch into the latest source pool.  Thanks again.
