Description Tom Kennedy 2007-02-05 16:21:36 UTC
Description of problem:

I have mount commands that are attempting to mount read/write file systems
during the %pre and %post phases of Linux installation.  When the instaler gets 
to these commands, a message saying the "the File system is Read Only" is 
printed.  I tried tp mount it manyally with the -rw options to mount, but it 
did not work.  The same commands work fine froma a RHEL4 installation, so I 
know the NFS mountse are OK.  

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

How reproducible:

1) Add a mount command that mounts an NFS share read/write in the %pre or %post
sections of a kickstart file
   Add a command that echo text to a file on the mounted share
2) Start the installation

Actual results:

A message saying the mounted file system is Readonly is displayed

Expected results:

The file should be created with the echoed text.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Tom Kennedy 2007-02-05 23:02:02 UTC
The title is a little misleading.   It should say  write to NFS shared not 
allowwed in %pre/%post kickstart sections.

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2007-02-06 15:47:42 UTC
What does your kickstart file look like?

This is the kickstart file.

Comment 4 Tom Kennedy 2007-02-16 17:08:16 UTC
Solved.  Turns out one of the mounts did not have the -o nolock

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2007-02-22 14:20:42 UTC
Closing as NOTABUG on the basis of comment #4.  If you still continue to see
problems even after adding -o nolock, please feel free to reopen this bug report.
