ignoredisk in RHEL 6.0, anaconda 13.21.149
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
I am trying to find some information regarding how ignoredisk works and to see if it’s use has changed since RHEL5. In RHEL 6/anaconda 13.21.149 when I am installing with USB media and I use ignoredisk --disk=<list of disks which includes the USB drive> (like ignoredisk --disk=sda,sdc )my install fails with the message (from storage/__init__.py in my version of anaconda):
"The installation source given by device [‘LABEL=IPMDISK'] could not be found".
It appears that in RHEL 6 when anaconda is looking for installation media, it will ignore the drives in this list. I have used this option exactly the same way in RHEL 5 and it did not have this issue.
The documentation I have found for ignoredisk only states that it ignores these devices “when partitioning, formatting and clearing” which doesn’t appear to have changed for RHEL6.
Controls anaconda's access to disks attached to the system. Only one of the following two options may be used.
Specifies those disks that anaconda should not touch when partitioning, formatting, and clearing.
Specifies the opposite - only disks listed here will be used during installation.
Allow the user manually navigate the advanced storage screen.
I have tried both options listed above, using the --drives option to ignore disks I don’t want to install onto, or with the --only-use, with the same results.
I have searched the web looking for anything regarding this but have only found this one link:
Is this expected behavior for ignoredisk now? Am I missing something?
