Red Hat Kickstart errors

Hi Guys,

I'm having issues with my ks.cfg that was auto-generated by anaconda and I'm trying to use it as a template to build 6 additional servers with the same settings. However when my kickstart is parsed by the Red Hat installation, I'm getting a partition was not created error. Does anyone know what I can be doing wrong or do I need to repartition everything from scratch?

Best regards

clearpart --all

#part None --fstype=efi --label="ESP" --onpart=sda1 --noformat
#part None --fstype=vfat --label="DIAGS" --onpart=sda2 --noformat
#part None --fstype=vfat --label="OS" --onpart=sda3 --noformat
#part /boot --fstype=ext4 --onpart=sda4
#part pv.008005 --grow --size=282478

The first 3 reference existing partitions that are selected to not be formatted, and there are no labelled partitions for swap or for root (/).  Also, pv.008005 is probably proprietary in some way to the first system you installed.  Finally, all are commented out anyway, so they're not even being read even if they were correct, which I'm sure they're not for your new systems.  Do your new systems already have pre-existing EFI and DOS/Windows partitions created?

This is what my (working) ks.cfg looks like for partitioning:

# Partition clearing information
clearpart --all
# Disk partitioning information
part /var --fstype="ext4" --size=16384
part swap --size=8192
part / --fstype="ext4" --grow --size=200
