Hi there, just after a bit more information, as to whether this needs doc text, and if so what was causing this problem, and what the fix is.

Comment 9 Fabian Deutsch 2013-11-29 04:34:56 EST
Hey Charlie,

no we don't need a technote here. That's mainly backend stuff.

Hey Fabian,
Not sure how to verify this bug, could you help this or i just need to check patch was merged into rhevh 6.5 base image.
Comment 11 Fabian Deutsch 2014-01-14 06:08:49 EST
Hey Haiyang,

you can check this as follows:
1. Set netconsole host which is not reachable
2. Save page

No exception should be shown on the screen.
Comment 12 haiyang,dong 2014-01-15 00:37:24 EST
Test version:

Test as follow:
1. Set netconsole host which is not reachable
2. Save page

Test result:
No exception was shown on the screen when set netconsole with a unreachable server

so this bug has been fixed, change the status into "verified".
