Re: Kickstart Partitioning Errors



Just a thought; Have you tried to zero the MBR first in the ks profile ? Also I found out that clearpart --all --initlabel must be used otherwise errors for failed partitioning persist. You may try changing your kickstart profile to reflect something like the following:

bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=sda,sdb
clearpart --all --initlabel
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 -->part pv.31 --size=10000 -->volgroup VolGroup00 --pesize=32768 pv.31
logvol swap --fstype swap --name=swap --vgname=VolGroup00 --size=1000
logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=root --vgname=VolGroup00 --size=6000

It sounds like anaconda is not seeing your hard drive at all (which to my recollection happens with VMWare's SCSI drivers in some versions).

You can get more info by going to the shell after getting the error (Alt-F2) and running the list-harddrives command.

I've set up a fairly default install of Spacewalk 0.5 and set up a

and I'm not off to a great start. Perhaps this is just something simple
that I've missed that someone could chime in on.

When I PXE boot with an IDE VM in VMware Workstation, I get the error:
       "An error occurred trying to format myvg/rootvol.  This problem
is serious, and the install cannot continue."

When I PXE boot with a SCSI VM in VMware Workstation, I get the error:
       "Could not allocate requested partitions: Partitioning failed:
Could not allocate partitions as primary partitions. Not enough space
left to create partition for /boot."

Here is the partitioning details from Spacewalk > Systems > Kickstart >
Profiles > CentOS-5-2. I'm not sure where this is stored in file.

       partition /boot --fstype=ext3 --size=200
       partition swap --size=1000   --maxsize=2000
       partition pv.01 --size=1000 --grow

       volgroup myvg pv.01

       logvol / --vgname=myvg --name=rootvol --size=1000 --grow
