Depicts the "//" double slash problem in URL
Description of problem:
When trying to boot a virtual machine using a cobbler generated.iso file, I encounter the following message: " Unable to retrive http://10.99.30.61//ks/dist/rhel5_64bit_dist/images/stage2.img " notice the "//" forward slashes. When I hit on ok, i get the chance to change the full path. See the attached picture that depicts this scenario.
So even after removing the "/" in front of the ks/dist/.... on the second line the problem re-occurs. So i can never get by this step as the URL is not valid because of the "//" double slashes bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a Kickstart Profile
2.In /etc/rhn/rhn.conf change the value of the parameter cobbler.host to the ip address of the spacewalk server.
In /etc/cobbler/settings change the value of the parameters server and redhat_management_server to the ip-address of the spacewalk server.
4. boot the vm using the buildiso.iso file
you get the: http://yourip//... (double slash problem)
You should get the: http://yourip/ks/dist/rhel5_64bit_dist/images/stage2.img
If you provision directly from Spacewalk, do you see the same problem? In other words, is this related to buildiso or to the kickstart generated by Spacewalk? What does the kickstart file look like in either situation?
