Fixed In Version: anaconda-13.21.210-1
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Anaconda could not set the boot device since it was not set properly. Consequence: Manual reboot of the system was required upon completion of an upgrade. Fix: Proper support for bootloader upgrades was implemented for s390x. Result: Manual and kickstart upgrades on s390x will detect the correct boot device and reboot the system after upgrading.

Description Jan Stodola 2012-11-12 04:35:18 EST
Description of problem:
When kickstart upgrade is performed on s390x, anaconda shuts down the system instead of rebooting although "reboot" command is present in kickstart.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install previous version of RHEL. Following partitioning was used:
bootloader --location=mbr
clearpart --all --initlabel
part /boot --asprimary --size=500 --label=boot
part swap --fstype=swap --recommended --label=swap
part / --grow --size=2048

2. prepare kickstart for upgrade - make sure that "reboot" command is present:
lang en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
bootloader --upgrade

3. run kickstart upgrade
Actual results:
system is halted after upgrade

Expected results:
system is rebooted after upgrade

Additional info:
When running manual upgrade, anaconda successfully reboots at the end of the upgrade. I'm able to reproduce only on s390x, x86_64 works as expected.

Pushing this off to RHEL6.5 planning since it's not a 6.4 blocker.

Retested with anaconda-13.21.204-1.el6, but reboot is still not happening - system shuts down after upgrade. 

From anaconda.log:
11:27:33,817 INFO    : Unable to set reIPL device to None: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'NoneType' objects
11:27:33,821 INFO    : reIPL configuration failed => halt
11:27:33,823 INFO    : leaving (1) step reipl

Logs from the upgrade will be attached. Moving to ASSIGNED.
