A separate bug was requested for this documentation issue.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #681219 +++
Quoting Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Installation Guide Edition 1.0, section 26.3. Installation network parameters:
Defines the DASD or range of DASDs to configure for the installation. For a detailed description of the syntax, refer to the dasd_mod device driver module option described in the chapter on the DASD device driver in Linux on System z Device Drivers, Features, and Commands on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Because the DASD= config in CMSCONFFILE is sourced by the shell, the right hand side needs to be quoted to avoid errors reading the metacharacters '(' and ')'. For example:
For completeness, why not single-quote all CMSCONFFILE parameters given by example, both in "Installation network parameters" and "Sample parameter file and CMS configuration file"?
I haven't checked, but this error probably appears in the Installation Guide for other RHEL versions.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Philip.
The DASD example was fixed in build 1.0-43 of the guide, and the remaining examples have been corrected for build 1.0-45.
