Re: [atomic-devel] Specifying multiple ostreesetup for redundancy

We’re hitting a corner case that on a few of our servers, the server bond doesn’t finish negotiating before the ostree is attempted to download.  The result we get it is in the attached screenshot.  By the time I ctl-b,2 and start doing pings/ip route commands, everything works.  So is a very short interval that its trying to pull the ostree and cannot.  I’m wondering if there is a way to specify a number of retries, or perhaps multiple ostrees for the kickstart to try for reduncancy?  Those seems like reasonable things to have, but I’m not finding anything in the docs about it.  Any ideas?

Hey Britt, 

I imagine you can either specify some network options [1] to get around this or 
there is a bug in anaconda that is causing it to not wait long enough for link
to be ready.

You might be able to temporarily work around this by adding the following to your

sleep 30                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

All this does is specify a %pre script that waits 30 seconds.
