RHEL installation from ISO error :

I have the iso on my laptop. I am connected via drac to the server. The installation starts but after the time zone i get an error

Unable to read group information from repositories
This is a problem with the generation of your install tree

I did some google and saw that i might have to activate the logical volume with:

lvchange -ay /dev/VolGrp_Raid5/LogVol_Raid5

not sure though...

any ideas ?

I am installing the OS in a RAID1 configuration

It's got nothing to do with LVM, it cant get the installation tree from the source, I guess the cd is local to your laptop and you're mounting it remotely, whenever I have done this it's always failed, much better if you can get someone to insert the disk locally and login remotely to configure the server or do some sort of network installation.

Unless of course there is an issue with the ISO you are using so you could download another, verify it and have another go.

the ISO test failes. So i am downloading a new one. I cannot have a physical cd because these servers are on remote unmmaned data centers and i dont have a physical presence there.

I will try with the new iso.
If the new ISO fails again but verifies ok you may be able to do an network install, it's a smaller ISO image and you can get the installation media off the internet.
