Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 827154
Network install using a fixed IP address no longer works
Last modified: 2013-01-10 01:48:56 EST
Description of problem:
Can't do network install using a fixed IP address
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from Network-install CD
2.Modify boot lines to include the appropriate "repo=" and "ip=" info
3.Proceed with boot
Boot starts up ignoring ip info and connecting to DHCP instead
Boot should use IP address given and not use DHCP
DHCP is not an option for us because our network uses authenticated DHCP and I have no control over our network
Please note - I am not a novice. I have installed every RedHat version starting with 7.0 and every Fedora version ever released. This is the first time I have ever been stumped on getting a network install using a fixed IP address to work.
ip= format changed in F17, and we didn't get the documentation updated in time. Please see the bug I'm marking this a duplicate of.
