Anaconda to the Rescue

Filed under

I've always been a fan of the flexibility of anaconda and kickstart not just for installing systems, but also for rescuing a system when something goes horribly wrong.

Yesterday I updated a remote test system from Fedora 16 to Rawhide, and I found myself with no network access to the machine due to a firmware issue. The system has DRAC 6 express, so I can reset the system and force a pxe boot, but I can't see or interact with the console when it boots.
