Re: partition syntax




Not sure if you got your answer or not yet. Below is our kickstart for preserving a previous installation partition:

part /boot        --fstype ext3 --asprimary --size    128 --onpart sda1
part swap                       --asprimary --size   1000 --onpart sda3
part /            --fstype ext3 --asprimary --size  10000 --onpart sda2
part /home --fstype ext3 --size 40000 --onpart sda5 --noformat part /scratch --fstype ext3 --size 1 --grow --onpart sda6 --noformat

You need to have each partition specified or the installation will fail every time. Also do NOT have the following lines in the kickstart:

zerombr yes

clearpart --all --initlabel

Thank you,

Ryan

Try adding the --noformat in addition to the --onpart

Subject: partition syntax


what's the partitioning syntax to use an existing partition,
say a swap
partition from redhat 7.2 and reformat it for rhel3?

I essentially want to use the same swap partition for both
7.2 and el3.

I tried part swap --onpart /dev/sda2

I'm getting unable to open /dev/sda2 for the use of "none"
