Re: reverse name lookup failed

Yes. In order for a networked kickstart to work you need to have a DHCP
server, a DNS server and an NFS server. All three set up correctly.

I don't know if it has been changed already, but it used to be that even if
you specified bootproto static, it would still use DHCP for IP address
lookup while installing, but would configure the static IP addresses in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 in order to boot with static IP

Subject:  reverse name lookup failed

hello everybody,

after making a bootdisk using the bootnet.img on the redhat 6.2 cd-rom
and making a correct ks.cfg file i get the following error

* reverse name lookup failed

in my ks.cfg i didn't define a name server, only an IP-address and a

network --bootproto static --ip --netmask

do you must have a nameserver/dns in your network, or can you in stall
in without a name/dns-server.
