just got a chance to learn in a hard way the fact that:
'clearpart --all' affects not only all partitions, but also all _drives_.
There's nothing mentioned about multidisk stuff in kickstart. Also one
can't specify on which drive should be exact partition built, so one can
make a very *bad* assumption that "kickstart doesn't touch any other
let's put at least into documentation, that ks DOES touch other disk drives
(hdb, sdb, sdc...), even if you can't do partitioning on them.
suggestion - what about a possibility to give some kindof mix of these
fstab (where to mount),
fdisk (what to mount, maybe even let playing with cylinders?)
and our ks table (--size, --grow, --maxsize..)
also: looks like wiping out partition table is not done very clean (touches
fs data?), at least i failed to restore my 6 ext2 fs :'(
[well, had not much time for that]
this is documented in our manual
ok, i'll be short this time. But just to keep docs (and RH) accurate:
(also hardcopy of manual on my desk) contains:
-To clear all partitions from a disk, this line would do the trick:
- clearpart --all
should sound like:
+To clear all partitions from all disks, this line would do the trick:
+ clearpart --all
p.s. if it shouldn't touch other disks then it's a bug.
