When installing RHEL guests via PXE/kickstart with virt-install the OS
installs but then the guest is powered off.
Expected behaviour is for guest to reboot itself to finish the install.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.1 (Santiago)
Linux ucm-buildhost 2.6.32-131.0.15.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 10
15:42:40 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
virt-install --name=rhel-56-i686 --arch=i686 --vcpus=1 --ram=1024
--os-type=linux --os-variant=rhel5.4 --disk
--network=bridge:br0,mac=52:54:00:00:00:b7 --vnc --pxe --noautoconsole
No change when using the --noapic and --noacpi options.
Identical PXE/kickstart configuration reboots after install on physical
hardware an VMware guests.
The correct kickstart line "reboot" is present.
Removing --noautoconsole has no effect.
Have not tried RHEL 6.2 beta.
I have a case open with Red Hat on this as well but wanted to query the
virt-tools list as well if anyone else has seen this issue, has a
workaround, of it this should be filed as a bug.
