Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • We are trying to provision a RHEL 7 beta system from our Red Hat Satellite 5.6 , and anaconda gives us the following error:
new value non-existent xfs filesystem is not valid as a default fs type
  • Trying to deploy RHEL7 beta with virt-install the installer stops with this:
anaconda 19.31.48-1 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 (pre-release) started.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/sbin/anaconda", line 998, in <module>
