Why kickstart installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 fails with error saying bootproto=none is invalid option?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Trying to configure an interface without any IP
network  --bootproto=static --device=eno1 --gateway= --ip= --nameserver= --netmask= --onboot=yes --ipv6=auto --hostname=testserver.example.com
network  --bootproto=none --device=eno2 --onboot=yes --ipv6=auto
  • Unfortunately Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 kickstart does not like bootproto=none and If one gives the option static then it takes the IP from the first interface.
