I'm using the CentOS 6 netinstall ISO with some kickstart files on an http server. When the ISO boots I hit TAB and enter the boot options
My kickstart files do not have a
network parameter, so it should be prompting. When I leave out
asknetwork it tries to use DHCP. With
asknetwork it only prompts for IP information.
Unfortunately anaconda is hell bent on automatically discovering the hostname, which ends up being a reverse DNS lookup of the IP, or
localhost.localdomain if nothing was found.
Is there a way to make anaconda prompt for the hostname, or some way to pre-enter it through a custom boot option?
There used to be
network --bootproto=query for CentOS 5, but this no longer works in 6.
