Bug #3008

Partition table is truncated

I'm currently building a relatively long disklayout and I found out that when I paste (or import template from Community Templates plugin), the disklayout is truncated.
When I go see my new host provision file, it is truncated in the middle of disklayout file and the end of the provision file is not there, the file just stops in the middle of disklayout.
The workaround I found is to put the disklayout directly in the Edit host field.

I'm using foreman 1.2.1 on Debian 7.

Thank you for your support; let me know if you need anything more.

i've change the size of the "layout" column in pgsql, so now, it work with long ptables.

not sure if it's the best way, but now it's working...

I had the same issue with an mysql backend.

The mysql column is defined as varchar(2048). My partition layout was being truncated without warning.

I edited my layout so it used up less space and fixed it like that.

The field in foreman should at least check for the same amount of max characters and throw an error if it has to many character.
