Hi,

Pls let me know how to resolve the issue installing rhel58 using pvm. I'm using "network boot path" as

kernel images/xen/vmlinuz ramdisk images/xen/initrd.img --args="ksdevice=eth0 network bootproto=static ip=10.40.1.40 netmask=255.255.255.0 gateway=10.40.1.2 ks=http://10.40.1.2/ks/rhel58-x86_64" http://10.40.1.2/rhel/5.8/os/x86_64/


Part of Error desc:
Job Internal Error (Operation)com.oracle.ovm.mgr.api.exception.FailedOperationException: com.oracle.ovm.mgr.api.exception.FailedOperationException: OVMAPI_8017E: [perfvm01] has a misconfigured network.

    Why are you passing kernel images/xen/vmlinuz ramdisk images/xen/initrd.img in the boot network path? How do you expect for the guest to find

    images/xen/vmlinuz?

    You should be getting this from the PXE server configuration. Then pass your

    --args="ksdevice=eth0 network bootproto=static ip=10.40.1.40 netmask=255.255.255.0 gateway=10.40.1.2 ks=http://10.40.1.2/ks/rhel58-x86_64" http://10.40.1.2/rhel/5.8/os/x86_64/
