Bug Description

Binary package hint: partman-iscsi

Binary package hint: partman-iscsi

Using Lucid RC candidate 20100419.1

This is my ietd.conf in the target:

     IncomingUser ara ara
     OutgoingUser ara ara
     Lun 0 Path=/storage/lun1.img,Type=fileio
     Alias LUN1

If I install open-iscsi in the target, I confirm that I can log in correctly providing those authentication parameters.

When installing Ubuntu server in the initiator, however, when providing the login information, it returns an error about "no targets were found on". Bug 567196 prevents me for going any further.

I have looked at the logs, and no useful information is found. I will attach a screenshot of the tail of the log (syslog)

Unauthenticated installation, with the same configuration, worked fine.

When the installation reaches the hostname prompt, could you switch to tty2, 'nano /lib/partman/lib/', put 'set -x' on the second line, save and exit, and then continue the installation attempt? Then attach /var/log/syslog again once it fails.

Ideally, do this with partman-iscsi 14 which with any luck will be in the archive tomorrow once somebody's reviewed it, but doing it with the current version 13 is fine too.

My own attempts to replicate this are being thoroughly confused by network configuration oddities, and I'd like a log from a more known-good setup.

Hello Colin,

Please, find the log you required. I got this with version 13, as no new ISOs were built since Friday.

If you need anything else, please, feel free to ask.

This bug is invalid. My KVMs network configuration was changed in the middle of my testing.
Configuring again the network solved the issue. I found some other minor issues related to authentication that I will report as separated bug reports.
