Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Basic_Release_Criteria#scripted-user-creation release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion. If so, please file a bug and nominate it as blocking the appropriate milestone, using the blocker bug nomination page.


This test case tests whether user creation and root password configuration work correctly in a kickstart-driven installation.


  1. Prepare a test system (virtual or real) with sufficient memory to install Fedora, an empty hard disk (or such that you do not mind losing the contents of all connected hard disks: this test WILL wipe all hard disks connected to the test system)

How to test

  1. Boot using a dedicated installer image for the Fedora release you wish to test
  2. At the boot menu, edit the options for one of the "Install Fedora" options to include the parameter inst.ks=
  3. The installation should run and complete unattended: allow it to complete, boot the installed system, and attempt to log in with the username 'test' and the password 'test'
  4. Attempt to log in as or elevate to root (with su) using the password '111111'

Expected Results

  1. It should be possible to authenticate to the installed system as the user 'test' with password 'test', and as root with password '111111'.
