Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 66851
Misleading error if HTTP install server address is wrong.
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I tried to do an HTTP install from pcmcia.img, and I entered the wrong server IP
address. The error message that came up on the next screen was "Unable to find
/RedHat/Base/netstg1.img on the server", without mentioning the IP address. It
took me a little while to figure out that I entered the wrong IP server IP
address; the error message led me on a wild goose chase, looking at the apache
configuration on the server, etc.
Since I entered IP addresses, error recovery code should distinguish between two
error condition: unable to contact the server; and receiving a 404 from the server.
Assigning to an engineer.
Made the error message give the full URL that's unable to be retrieved so that
it's more obvious
