You need to attach the anaconda logs to this bug report as individual, uncompressed attachments. Doing anything else prevents us from searching bugzilla in the future. Please do this every time you file an anaconda bug or we will have to close things as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Created attachment 596394 [details]
anaconda.log from RHEL-7.0-20120626.n.0 Server x86_64
anaconda.log from one of my jobs attached
So this was looking on the NFS mount storage.bos.redhat.com:/vol/engineering/devarchive/redhat/nightly/RHEL-7.0-20120626.n.0/compose/Server/x86_64/os/ and trying to read repodata from there. It wasn't able to find the repodata file on that mount. Is it possible that mount was out of sync at the time of the install attempt? Were you able to reproduce the problem at a later time?
