Hi all!

I've prepared an iSCSI target (32 GB) with a small (2GB) ext4 filesystem
containing LiveOS/squashfs.img, initrd.img and vmlinuz and configured
extlinux to make that partition bootable
netroot=iscsi rd.iscsi.firmware=1) and to boot Fedora-Workstation-Live.

Then I'm using iPXE with iBFT configured to boot LiveOS from this
target, all fine.

Now I'd like to install Fedora on the remainder of the same iSCSI target
(30GB), for some reason it isn't available as a installation target and
when I try to add the iSCSI target the following message is shown:

Failed to call Login method on /org/freedesktop/UDisks2/Manager with
('iqn...') arguments: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.Failed:
Login failed: initiator reported error (15 - session exists).

Yes, I think the target has already been attached automatically by Anaconda because it found it in iBFT.

I guess Anaconda doesn't allow to install on the device where it booted
from, is there a way to workaround this?

I think you are right, and I am afraid there is no such way, but I am not yet sure

I fully understand your case.

What is your expected state of the target? It seems to me like

you'd need 2 iSCSI targets (one for live, second for installed system) to

be able to boot both to live and installed system.

Or do you want to overwrite the live?

Attaching /tmp/syslog from installer environment could also help me to better understand your case.
