[edit] Support installation to iSCSI via separate NIC

[edit] Summary

Support installations using one NIC for fetching packages and a different one to back iSCSI storage.

[edit] Owner

[edit] Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 15
  • Last updated: 2011-01-19
  • Percentage of completion: 90%

[edit] 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).

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

Wider range of iSCSI installations.

[edit] Scope

anaconda: kickstart network configuration only

pykickstart

[edit] 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

[edit] User Experience

No change.

[edit] Dependencies

[edit] Contingency Plan

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

[edit] Documentation

New kickstart network command options.

[edit] Release Notes

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