KVM simple network installation failure.
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have trouble learning how to do a simple Centos7 network installation. I keep getting the errors in the attached image. Same errors when trying from http and ftp servers. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I have the SELinux public context set on both servers.
Iptables is flushed. (i got rid of firewalld and installed iptables)
I can reach both servers from another system on the network. (I use ftp://127.0.0.1/pub/inst as the url when getting these errors)

At some point, interactively or in a kickstart file, you told the installation process to download the software from 127.0.0.1. This is the local loopback interface. "local" means "this system". That is, not the virtual machine host, but the virtual machine that is being installed. I might be wrong but I doubt that dracut has an http server running.

Instead of 127.0.0.1, provide the address of the system where the http or ftp server runs.

You were correct! Thank you so much! Now I have a new problem. Install failed due to "bad file descriptor"

Wanted to thank you again, I tried the same thing but used ftp instead of http. Everything worked perfectly. I will mark this thread SOLVED and try to recreate the http installation files to match the ftp setup and see if I can get a successful http install. Thank you again.
