Yup, that's it. Who can tell my company has not quite gotten there yet. ;-)

comment How to prevent DNS lookups when service already disabled DNS lookups?
I was afraid the queries were still being sent for some type of DNS resolution. Since it occurred in more than one service, and it was directly impacted by the removal of the "nameserver" from the /etc/resolv.conf file. I could not find anything within the Postfix doco that would have explained it. As for a mail server without DNS, I agree entirely, but this mail server does not require DNS, as none of the other systems it interfaces with are listed within other DNS systems, and would not gain from all of the above-mentioned features.

For the same mystical reason, the NFS change resolved the issue.

comment How can I troubleshoot a failing Linux kickstart installation?
I am able to download a package from the repository without error. The issue only exists when I attempt to use the repository for installation. I even attempted to run a manual installation from the repository. The image/stage2.img file is loaded, but when it comes time to download packages the behavior is the same. At this point, I have loopback-mounted the first DVD but the same issue exists. (using CentOS 5.8)

I have tried ALT+F2 and ALT+F3. F2 brings me to the BusyBox prompt, but no error messages. I have looked through the entire filesystem and nothing. The install logs under /mnt/sysimage/root/ do not even contain information.
