This test case tests whether user creation and root password configuration work correctly in a kickstart-driven installation.
- Prepare a test system (virtual or real) with sufficient memory to install Fedora, an empty hard disk (or such that you do not mind losing the contents of all connected hard disks: this test WILL wipe all hard disks connected to the test system)
How to test
- Boot using a dedicated installer image for the Fedora release you wish to test
- At the boot menu, edit the options for one of the "Install Fedora" options to include the parameter inst.ks=http://fedorapeople.org/groups/qa/kickstarts/root-user-crypted-net.ks
- The installation should run and complete unattended: allow it to complete, boot the installed system, and attempt to log in with the username 'test' and the password 'test'
- Attempt to log in as or elevate to root (with
su) using the password '111111'
- It should be possible to authenticate to the installed system as the user 'test' with password 'test', and as root with password '111111'.
