Doc Text:
.RHEL System Roles updated The `rhel-system-roles` packages, which provide a configuration interface for RHEL subsystems, have been updated. Notable changes include: * Handling of absent profiles in the `network` role has been improved. When deleting an existing NetworkManager on-disk profile configuration by setting the persistent state to `absent`, only the persistent configuration for the profile is now removed, and the current runtime configuration remains unchanged. As a result, the corresponding network device is no longer brought down in the described situation. * Specifying a Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) size for VLAN and MACVLAN interfaces in the `network` role has been fixed. As a result, setting MTU size on VLAN and MACVLAN interfaces using the `network` role no longer fails with the following error message: [literal] ---- failure: created connection failed to normalize: nm-connection-error-quark: connection.type: property is missing (6) ---- * The `selinux` and `timesync` roles now include all their documented input variables in their defaults files (`defaults/main.yml`). This makes it easy to determine what input variables are supported by the roles by examining the content of their respective defaults files. * The `kdump` and `timesync` roles have been fixed to not fail in check mode. // references (BZ#1674004, BZ#1685904)

Description Pavel Cahyna 2019-03-06 09:25:36 UTC
Description of problem:

The network system role has had several updates since the last release: 
- keeps the interface up for state: up if persistent_state is absent (PR#95)
- solves problems with defining VLAN and MACVLAN interface types (issue #19)

Comment 1 Till Maas 2019-03-08 14:56:41 UTC
To match the changes for absent profiles as described in the description, the plan is also to adjust the role to handle state:down persistent_state:present properly. Also a bug with setting MTU in VLAN was found when fixing #19 which needs to be addressed as well.

Comment 3 Pavel Cahyna 2019-06-03 16:22:42 UTC
tests: tests/tests_vlan_mtu_nm.yml, tests/tests_states.yml
