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

I cannot find this string anywhere in the anaconda sources - which script are
you referring to?

Comment 2 Tom Coughlan 2002-04-24 20:28:55 UTC
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 23:58:20 UTC
Thank you very much for bringing this problem and corresponding fix to our

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.
