    Nope, both files are there

    [root@rhevaio ~]# cd /etc
    [root@rhevaio etc]# ll |grep lsb
    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 152 May 24 06:42 lsb-release

    That's odd, because the very first thing get_plat_tag.sh does is check for /etc/redhat-release, and exit when it can identify the release

    Code:
    if [ -f /etc/redhat-release ]; then
    
            i=`uname -i`
            if [ "x$i" = "xx86_64" ]; then
                    i="_64"
            else
                    i=""
            fi
    
            grep "Red Hat Enterprise Linux.*release 6" /etc/redhat-release > /dev/null 2>&1
            if [ $? = 0 ]; then
                    echo "RHEL6${i}"
                    exit 0
            fi
    ...
    fi
    So if it is failing to identify this as RHEL6, you'll need to track down why. Based on what you pasted, it should identify it just fine...

    Makes sense... I'll look into it. This means it should not have worked on anything but RHEL, where does --platform-override come into play?

    --platform-override just means "I know I am installing on an unsupported OS, and I don't care what disaster may occur because of this."

    Quahah, you know it's sounds rude.

    I have to agree a 100 % with that!
