Description Mads Kiilerich 2012-10-18 13:01:29 EDT
iptables.service has been split out to iptables-services-220.127.116.11-3.fc18 (with some reference to Bug 862922 - RFE: rework service packaging). That is probably ok now when we have firewalld. (It is however misleading that /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config is in iptables - it seems like it belongs in -services.) But AFAICS it is a critical problem that upgraded systems will get iptables-18.104.22.168-3.fc18.x86_64 without iptables.services and thus no longer get their firewall rules applied. That could compromise system security or availability. I would expect that some rpm magic was applied so systems upgraded from iptables < 18 also got iptables-services. I don't know if anaconda will handle this somehow, but it seems to me like it would be NTH.

This has been ON_QA for almost a month now, has anyone tested the fix to see if this has been fixed?
Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2012-12-13 17:01:50 EST
Looks fixed to me. I just tested a yum upgrade of a minimal F17 install to F18. iptables-services is installed after upgrade, 'systemctl status iptables.service' shows it successfully loaded during boot, and 'iptables -L' shows what looks like a working firewall config. Setting closed, as the update went stable long ago.
