Kickstart RHEL6 issue with ProLiant DL360p G8

Hi,


I have kickstarted few Proliant DL360p G8 server with RHEL5.7 using HP-CMU (Cluster Management Utility) which works perfectly fine. Now, I need to kickstart one of the server with RHEL6 using the same HP-CMU. I have created the kickstart file but when I run the command [cmu> autoinstall "rhel6" nodename], I can see that the server reboots, broadcasts the mac address and finds the kickstart server and loads the kernel but then I get stuck with the following error and the server hangs ...

 

CLIENT IP: 10.8.234.1  MASK: 255.255.255.0  DHCP IP: 10.8.234.200

Ready.

Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok

 

After that the server just hangs and I have to reboot it.

 

Any ideas what am I doing wrong or what might have went wrong ?

Re: Kickstart RHEL6 issue with ProLiant DL360p G8

Are you using RHEL 6.0? The minimum for the DL360 Gen8 is RHEL 6.1. Actually you should really start with RHEL 6.2 as there is a kdump issue with 6.1
