Default Kickstart problem

Ezra Taylor,

Check the file permission of ks.cfg. Most probably you have already
did that, but it came to my mind first. You should also run the
"ksvalidator" command each time you modify the kickstart file. The
syntax is,

#ksvalidator <kickstart-file-name>

Please inform us about your result.

Thanks and Regards,

Ahmed Sharif

Default Kickstart problem

Hello all:
I followed all of your suggestions and I'm still not able
to download the kickstart file. Just to let you know, while receiving the
above messages, the keyboard is disabled. I'm not even able to modify the
the line that shows the the location of the ks.cfg file. Also, I tried
downloading the file using http. Using http still produces the error
message "Error downloading kickstart file". I'm starting to think this is a
network issue.

Several questions:
- Are you sure that the OS is seeing eth0 as the interface you
expect? I know that on RHEL4 and RHEL5 certain hardware is probed PCI
slots first and then motherboard so the first onboard interface is
something other than eth0.

- Can you see the server connecting to the dhcp server to get
it's network information?

- Are the NFS exports set up correctly to allow your server to
mount and read the directory?

Default Kickstart problem

Hello Broekman:

I'm serving dhcp requests on eth1. The client host is getting its
connection from eth0. I can see from tcpdump and syslog that the client is
getting a ipaddress from dhcpd. I switched the cables from the client and
the the client boots from harddrive. My nfs setup is as follows.



*/etc/exports*
/opt/apps *(ro,async)


*Output from showmount command*

[etaylor@hellraiser ~]$ showmount -a
All mount points on hellraiser:
192.168.0.130:/apps/install
192.168.0.130:/opt/apps/install

Are all the options in your append line correct? The "Error getting
kickstart file" means that it can't find the ks.cfg in the path you
specified (/opt/apps/install/centos/5-2/i386/ks/ks.cfg). If that is the
correct location, one of your ethtool options may need to be adjusted
(are you really connected to a network that requires 100Mb _half_
duplex?)

Do you get any other messages on the alternate consoles (Alt-F2, Alt-F3,
Alt-F4) that indicate a problem (possibly a link error)?

Just trying to figure out all the potential problems.

Default Kickstart problem

Hello Maarten:
For some reason, I can't do a Alt-F[123]. My
keyboard is locked. I don't understand this. Also, I used http and the
same error message appearred. Note, I logged into another box and was able
to use wget to pull down the file. Lastly, I'm using a cheap Linksys switch
to connect the machines.
