Description

This test verifies installation using the HTTP(or FTP)-based install repository works by askmethod. See Anaconda/Options for information on supported boot options.


How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available means (netinst.iso, pxeboot images or DVD.iso)
  2. Direct anaconda to use HTTP(or FTP) as the installation type by adding the boot command: askmethod
  3. Choose On the network as Installation method when prompted.
  4. Provide a HTTP(or FTP) server and path to the installation tree
  5. Proceed with installation

Expected Results

  1. Anaconda uses the install repository from the HTTP(or FTP) server provided.
  2. Install completes successfully
  3. Package errors (install.log) should not occur
  4. System boots successfully
