Description Radek Vykydal 2016-07-20 14:31:49 UTC
During the development phase of RHEL 7.3 NetworkManager messages disappeared from /tmp/syslog.
Comment 1 Radek Vykydal 2016-07-20 14:37:17 UTC
Dan, any hint what might be the cause? Or what we need to configure to bring it back?
Comment 3 Lubomir Rintel 2016-07-28 09:34:00 UTC
Our fault. Stealing this.
Comment 4 Lubomir Rintel 2016-07-28 09:39:27 UTC
For QA: We used to log to syslog in 7.2, but added an option to log to journal in 7.3 and unintentionally switched the default. Not a big deal in the installed system since journald listens on syslog socket there and rsyslogd sucks in the logs from journal; but makes difference in the installer environment.
Comment 5 Radek Vykydal 2016-08-17 08:19:05 UTC
Any update? Requesting additional logs from reporters due to this BZ makes working on 7.3 bugs harder to Anaconda team.
Comment 7 Radek Vykydal 2016-08-18 11:27:46 UTC
The 1:1.4.0-0.4.git20160727.9446481f build does not fix the problem for me. I've tested with http://download.eng.brq.redhat.com/pub/rhel/rel-eng/RHEL-7.3-20160811.0/compose/Server/x86_64/os/ having newer build NetworkManager-1.4.0-0.5.beta1.el7 but it doesn't not work with the 1:1.4.0-0.4.git20160727.9446481f either.

Comment 10 Radek Vykydal 2016-08-19 08:37:47 UTC
Created attachment 1192071 [details] output of journalctl -u NetworkManager from anaconda Current nigthly http://download.eng.brq.redhat.com/pub/rhel/nightly/RHEL-7.3-20160818.n.0/compose/Server/x86_64/os/ with NetworkManager 1.4.0-0.6.beta1.el7 still does not seem to log into syslog in installer. I am attaching output of journalctl -u NetworkManager. Is there any way we can help to debug the issue? Perhaps there may be some problem also on Anaconda side?
Comment 11 Radek Vykydal 2016-08-19 08:38:35 UTC
Created attachment 1192072 [details] /tmp/syslog missing NM messages

(In reply to Radek Vykydal from comment #11) > Created attachment 1192072 [details] > /tmp/syslog missing NM messages no idea, why it still fails. It really shouldn't. Back to Lubomir :(
Comment 13 Radek Vykydal 2016-08-23 08:33:39 UTC
We probably need to update our rsyslog configuration in installer. It seems that we are hitting a journald, NM, syslogd services start race condition in 7.3 in installer. Looking into it.
Comment 14 Thomas Haller 2016-08-23 08:40:27 UTC
The bug seems to be fixed on NetworkManager's side with NetworkManager-1.4.0-0.6.beta1.el7 release. Waiting for anaconda to sort out the rsyslog configuration...

Comment 17 Vladimir Benes 2016-09-15 13:34:25 UTC
NM now correctly logs into syslog. It can be read afterwards in /var/log/anaconda/syslog.
