anaconda-ks.cfg


hello again,

I always seem to post here every few weeks and ask for some help; and you guys always show up.
Background:
I am using centos 6.2
it is a virtual host server trying to set up virtual machines through KVM. I currently have 1 up and running, 1 i cloned, now I'm trying to make another one using a kickstart file.

At first i had some errors in the ks.cfg file, i fixed them. So it doesn't stop there anymore. Now when i connect to my virtual ftp server to retrieve the ks.cfg file it works, however i get this error and it stops.

could not allocate requested partiitions: not enough free space on disks.

i tried a couple different things such as deleting the .img file and creating another one.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong on this one. If you guys need any more info let me know.

Thanks,

Hello,

This error happens when you design your partition scheme in kickstart in such a way that they cannot be created on the destination disk(s). Can you post the partition section, the one that has the part and logvol commands (if you use LVM)? Also post information about diskspace on the destination.

Kind regards,

Eric

haha so i figured out why it was stopping there. i set up the virtual hard drive for 12gb however i forgot to include the /swap & /home partitions as well. So that is why it said i didn't have enough space. So i bumped up the virtual hard drive space to 16GB and it ran no problems.
Thanks guys

also i noticed that i forgot the . when i was copying over files so it didn't find the repomd.xml
i had to delete the files i already copied over, remount the .iso
recopy it to the destination folder "cp -ar /media/. /var/ftp/pub/inst"
then change some selinux commands
make sure the firewall is off
iptables -F
then restart the ftp server
