I’m encountering behavior while deploying RHEL7 SP4 on an HP blade that can’t be explained. I have opened BigFix and RedHat cases, but neither have been able to reproduce or provide an explanation and more importantly a resolution.
The issue is during the deployment, the HP ILO4 and local consoles are locked to keyboard input. The Anaconda installation environment sets up 5 virtual consoles, which can be switched between to view various debugging info. If the deployment completes successfully and no debugging is required it’s not an issue. It becomes an issue when the install fails and debugging info needs to be gathered or as in my case, the kickstart script prompts for input.
Has anyone experienced this behavior? How was it resolved?
