Detailed Description

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638131

This requires ability to enable more than one network devices in loader while preserving current behaviour of kickstart network command, which means adding of new network --activate option. Also now when more devices come into play, option that allows to prevent grabbing of default route by additional (e.g. iSCSI dedicated) device is needed (--nodefroute).

Benefit to Fedora

Wider range of iSCSI installations.

Scope

anaconda: kickstart network configuration only

pykickstart

Test Plan

Configuration desired in the feature should work, new kickstart options work as expected.

Other configurations shouldn't be broken keeping the old behaviour, especially these cases:

  • using iSCSI and single NIC
  • more than one network commands in kickstart

User Experience

No change.

Dependencies

Contingency Plan

Disabling new options. The feature is supposed to keep behaviour of existing configurations.

Documentation

New kickstart network command options.

Release Notes

Added installation case should be mentioned. Not sure about heralding of new possibility to activate more devices using kickstart in general.
