Hi All,

I am installing the RHEL PV through virt-install,

#virt-install  --name=dom1 --ram=500 --file=/home/disk --file-size=10
--mac=00:50:56:2d:31:6d --bridge=xenbr2 --nographics --noautoconsole
--paravirt --location=nfs:server3.domain.com:/vol/vol1/tnuwal/rl5 --debug -x
"ks=http://khost/ks.cfg ksdevice=eth2"

Here  eth2 is my public IP and xenbr2 is bridge over this.

When i start the install then i got following message on console of this.

Starting install...
libvir: Xen Daemon error : GET operation failed:
Domain installation still in progress.  You can reconnect
to the console to complete the installation process.

Now when i tried to connect the console ...Then it started the instllation
But this stuck that it could not download the kickstart file

Why is it happening as i can download this file on dom0 using wget. Because
khost and my machine are well pingable.
