Description zyu 2002-10-15 12:43:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
rootpw directive
ks.cfg(on http server)        rootpw --iscrypted $1$`f67vaAz$9pjcxkZfNqHTwAFk7svtb.
ks.cfg (on target box) rootpw --iscrypted $1$`f67vaAz$9pjcxkZfNqHTwAFk7svtb.

also root entry /etc/shadow on target box:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. prep a ks.cfg with rootpw --isencrypted with char from beyond ANSI
1.RH8.0 with httpd. put ks.cfg under DocumentRoot
2. boot the target box with RH8 1st disc. 'linux ks=http://http.server/ks.cfg
3. check /tmp/ks.cfg on target box during kickstart install,
or /etc/shadow after install

Actual Results:  root pass corrupted

Expected Results:  root pass not corrupted, should have the same result of ks=floppy

Additional info:

other issues:
1. password provided thru 'rootpw --isencrypted' is not shadowed. so does
usermod -p "passInCrypt" in %post. 
had to run pwconv in %post.

2. 'install url --url http://http.server/sourceTree' is not honored when boot
from Disc1 with 'linux ks=http://http.server/ks.cfg'. local cdrom is used for
install instead of the remote source tree.
