Chapter 10. Installation and Booting

Using an HTTPS source for kickstart files is now supported

With this update, it is now possible to specify HTTPS sources for kickstart files. (BZ#1259880)

Increased debug logging for NetworkManager

The default log level of the NetworkManager utility has been increased to make debugging the installation process easier. (BZ#831777)

Automatic network device configuration using 802.1q VLAN tags from the iBFT

The installer configures network devices automatically, based on the iSCSI Boot Firmware Table (iBFT). Before this update, if 802.1q VLAN tagging was required for a device, the installer was not able to apply this information to the installed system. Now, if the 802.1q VLAN ID of a device is specified in the iBFT, the installer will use this information to automatically configure the device on the installed system. (BZ#831002)
