we are testing different Blade Systems. In our environment PXE boot is not allowed, though all the deployment tools can't work. That's why we use autoyast with custom CDs.
The IBM Blade Center has an USB CDROM and an USB floppy. On blades with local disks the installation works fine, but on blades without local disks there is a problem with the USB floppy. When the system boots from CDROM the floppy shows up as /dev/sda and the first SAN disk as /dev/sdb. After the installation the device probing order changes an the first SAN disk shows up as /dev/sda. There is no problem if I do a manual installation with the original SLES9 CDs.
Any idea ?
Details on install media: I created the CD with Yast CD Creator from SLES9 RC5 isos and SLES9 SP1 isos. There is no autoyast.xml but a rules/rules.xml which calls other XML files depending on disk device, cpu architecture and memory.
