Description Jesse Keating 2012-05-23 15:55:07 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #729910 +++

Description of problem:
When installing on DASD devices that don't need to be formatted during the install with dasdfmt, anaconda doesn't fill "Interconnect" and "Serial Number" columns in filtering UI.
On the other hand, when dasdfmt is used to format an uninitialized DASD drive during the install, both columns are filled.
See attached screenshot - DASD drive with device number 3527 was formatted with cpfmtxa before starting the install and then formatted by anaconda.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run cpfmtxa in CMS to format any DASD disk
2. start the installation in graphical mode
3. when asked, format all uninitialized DASD disks
4. proceed to the filtering UI
Actual results:
Only the DASD drive formatted during the installation has "Interconnect" and "Serial Number" fields filled.

Expected results:
"Interconnect" and "Serial Number" fields are filled for all DASD drives.

Interestingly, if I call ssh in and call udevadm trigger before anaconda starts, when anaconda gets to that screen all the details are filled in.  Not entirely sure what that means but I'll discuss it with storage folks.

Patch posted and accepted upstream for this.  Will be in the next build of anaconda for rawhide.
