Bug Fix Advisory netcf bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:1660-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-11-20
Last updated on: 2013-11-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated netcf packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The netcf packages contain a library for modifying the network configuration of
a system. Network configuration is expressed in a platform-independent XML
format, which netcf translates into changes to the system's "native" network
configuration files.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* When using the "virsh iface-start" or "ncftool ifup" command to start a
disconnected interface configured to use a DHCP server, the netcf library
reported a failure. However, the subsequent list of all interfaces showed the
interface as "active". After this update, netcf only reports "active" interface
status when the interface is marked both "UP" and "RUNNING" by the "ifconfig"
utility and if any attempt to start the interface was successful. (BZ#844578)

* Previously, attempts to define an interface with a netmask higher than 24 bits
failed. This bug has been fixed and it is now possible to define interfaces with
netmasks of up to 30 bits. (BZ#848722)

Users of netcf are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these
bugs.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
