Bug Description

Problem Description
======================
I would like to install on a SCSI device using a preseed file. But there is no documentation which keywords and syntax can be used to define the zFCP, WWPN and LUN in the preseed file.
There is also no documentation if it is possible to define the zFCP, WWPN and LUN already in the parmfile and how this can be done.

From s390-zfcp.templates as implemented by IBM in Debian:

Template: s390-zfcp/zfcp
Type: string
Description: for internal use; preseeding only
 Enables one ore more SCSI devices for the installation. Use the
 comma (,) to separate multiple entries. An entry consists of a
 zfcp host adapter only or a zfcp host adapter followed by the WWPN
 and LUN, separated by a colon (:). For example,
 0.0.1234,0.0.5678:0x2005000e11159c32:0x1234567800000000

I guess this information should be added to the installation guide, in both debian and ubuntu.

until the official installation guide for all architectures is updated, you may find all required preseed zfcp information here on that wiki page:
