NVME storage is not detected properly during installation
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


Installation script detects NVME partitions as drives, which allows selecting wrong/impossible install target. For example:

I found the following drives on your system:
 nvme0n1	4294MB
 nvme0n1p1	4292MB

Also, NVME partition names are not generated properly later. This adds more errors to the installation process:

Looking for pre-existing RAID groups...none found.
cannot mount /dev/nvme0n11
cannot mount /dev/nvme0n12
cannot mount /dev/nvme0n13

We should fix the installation script to avoid these mistakes.

Sure, it is fully compatible with 1.3. If no problems are found after the changes in 1.4 it must be backported.

TLDR; confirmed fixed for 1.3, please backport.

I encountered this problem as well on 1.3 on a Deciso DEC740 with NVME storage. I applied the patch by @zsdc, rebuilt a .deb for vyatta-cfg-system, baked it into the ISO and I was then able to install VyOS to the NVME storage without problems.

@marc_s thanks for testing !

And yep, this definitely should be backported to 1.3 branch, as nvme storage is very common these days..

@marc_s Would you be able to open a PR against 1.3 ?
