kickstart via altiris

hi,
i am trying to install RedHat 5.3 using Altiris

in my anaconda answer file im creating vg but
the installation stops on the following error:
"No volume group exists with the name 'vg00'.
Specify volume group before logical volume"

part of anaconda file:
"clearpart --all
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=200
part swap --size=1024
part pv.10 --size=500 -grow
volgroup vg00 pv.10

logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=lvol1 --vgname=vg00 --size=1024"

this answer file work fine when it runs without altiris.

can you spot the problem?
tnx

Shalom,

The image does not contain the volume group vg00 ?

altiris using the same answer file,
both using kickstart file to install the server from scratch, without images.

Re: kickstart via altiris

This is a working sample kickstart partition section:

clearpart --all --drives=sda --initlabel
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=sda
part pv.2 --size=0 --grow --ondisk=sda
volgroup rootvg --pesize=32768 pv.2
logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=rootlv --vgname=rootvg --size=1024 --grow
logvol swap --fstype swap --name=swaplv --vgname=rootvg --size=256


I would specially add the --initlabel option to clearpart.

I would use LVM for swap.
