Description Matthew Davis 2005-05-19 20:28:10 UTC
Description of problem:

We created a kickstart profile using the Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS (v. 3 for
AMD64/Intel EM64T) (ks-rhel-x86_64-ws-3) distribution.  This is, in essence, U2.
 However we cannot kickstart using that distro.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a kickstart profile using ks-rhel-x86_64-ws-3
2. Kickstart a machine using that profile
Actual results:

ERROR: Could not find the needed RHN provisioning packages given this system's
current base channel and desired target channel.

Expected results:

Successful kickstart

I think this is jconnor's - Looking at the data in webdev, it looks like the
tree in question (label: ks-rhel-x86_64-ws-3) has a 'boot_image' of

We don't have such a package, but we do have:


So I guess the 'plain' distrubution needs to go away and be replaced by one for u2.

Same goes for AS and ES, of course.

Comment 4 Jason Connor 2005-06-13 21:48:54 UTC
The missing trees have been added to WEBQA

Comment 5 Jason Connor 2005-06-17 15:04:58 UTC
test plan:
Kick an x86_64 box to rhel 3 u 2 (as, es, ws)

Comment 6 Beth Nackashi 2005-08-04 18:32:40 UTC
rhel 3 U2 kickstarts are failing

for some reason, anaconda can't find the scsi hard drive

this is the error:
VFS:  Can't find ext2 filesystem on dev loop(7,0)

I was testing on

Comment 7 Jason Connor 2005-08-04 18:45:22 UTC
Beth, you'll need to open a bug against anaconda. This bug is currently aligned
to RHN/kickstart.

Comment 8 Jason Connor 2005-08-04 18:47:29 UTC
I'm setting the bug into NEEDINFO until we can resume testing after fixing anaconda.

Comment 9 Beth Nackashi 2005-08-04 19:42:42 UTC
See 165162.

Comment 10 Mihai Ibanescu 2005-08-05 20:11:22 UTC
In that case, we're back to comment #4 - moving to ON_QA

Comment 11 Max Spevack 2005-08-08 15:51:33 UTC
in process of testing now.

Comment 12 Max Spevack 2005-08-08 16:00:21 UTC
x86_64 rhel-3-u2-ws kickstart works out of webqa.  PROD_READY
