Bug Description

Binary package hint: partman-iscsi

Using Lucid RC candidate 20100419.1

Steps to reproduce:

1. Start a diskless server installation
2. The hardware detection fails, and it shows the possibility to connect to a iSCSI target
3. Enter an IP where there is NO iSCSI target available
4. The installer shows an error about not finding a target. The only option presented is "Accept"
5. If the user accepts, it tries again to search a target in the same IP, failing again

I haven't found a way of skipping the step without forcing a shutdown.

partman-iscsi (14) lucid; urgency=low

  * Fix case of 'state' variable, so that we correctly go back to the
    address question after address validation failures (LP: #567196).
  * Eliminate duplicate target names (LP: #567206).
  * Don't pass an argument to db_go when asking partman-iscsi/login/failed.
  * Back up to appropriate previous state after asking
    partman-iscsi/login/empty_password.
  * Create a node record before trying to set up authentication.
