This test verifies that installing using an NFS installation repository that contains the DVD.iso by repo= boot option works. See Anaconda/Options for information on supported boot options.


  1. Set up a NFS server
  2. Copy the installation DVD.iso image into the server directory.
Don't mix images
When testing DVD ISO images, only copy the DVD ISO image for the exact architecture being tested. Do not mix ISO images from different architectures.

How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available means (netinst.iso, pxeboot images or DVD.iso)
  2. Direct anaconda to use the package repo from a NFS server where your DVD iso images are stored by repo= boot command. For example:
  3. Proceed with installation

Expected Results

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