HP ML350p Gen8 Raid 1 - Empty Drives Causes Remote Kickstart Warning Message

On the HP ML350p Gen8 when set to PXE boot, from remote server, if the drives are brand new (out the box) you get a warning message Saying are you sure you want to overwrite these drives. (Y/N). Obviously this is a pain and want to prevent this message from happening.

 

My Disk Layout Settings are:

 

clearpart --all --drives=cciss/c0d0
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=cciss/c0d0
part pv.2 --size=0 --grow --ondisk=cciss/c0d0
volgroup VolGroup00 --pesize=32768 pv.2
logvol swap --fstype swap --name=LogVol01 --vgname=VolGroup00 --size=512 --grow --maxsize=1024
logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=LogVol00 --vgname=VolGroup00 --size=1024 --grow
bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=cciss/c0d0 --append=""

What version of RHEL are you running? you may just need to change cciss to sda as the newer versions of the OS use hpsa instead of cciss for the Smart Array. hpsa is a scsi driver whereas the older cciss was a block device driver.
