xCAT Version 2.11.1
Lenovo X 3550
CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)

On a stateful install, both sda and sdb are wiped, even though the
kickstart correctly identifies and paritions (and installs to) sda.  The
/root/anaconda-ks.cfg file on the freshly installed node includes these

> ignoredisk --only-use=sda,sdb
> zerombr
> clearpart --all --initlabel

which I suspect are the issue.

However, I can't figure out how the "ignoredisk" line got in the kickstart
or from where it came.  It have verified that it is not in any of the xCAT
templates or "pre" scripts, nor is it in the xCAT generated
/install/autoinst/<nodename> file.

All xCAT settings relating to storage and partitioning are default.  The
osimage does not have a custom partitioning script associated with it.

Does anyone know where this comes from or how it gets put in there, or,
more importantly, how to work around it or adjust it?
