Description Ryan Barry 2014-08-12 15:52:10 UTC
Description of problem:
rsyslog supports IPV6 remotes, but augeas does nto suport this

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add an IPV6 remote in rsyslog.conf
2. Attempt to do anything with augeas

Actual results:
The syslog lens doesn't get a complete path match

Expected results:
augeas/augtool work

Additional info:
It looks like the loghost_r regexp in the syslog lens doesn't support IPv6 formats

Removing RFE tags as this is valid syntax, so treating it as a bug.

Comment 4 Lingfei Kong 2014-09-16 08:12:03 UTC
Can verify with augeas-1.1.0-13.el7

Steps to verify:
#cat /etc/rsyslog.conf
*.* @[2001::1]:514

#augtool print /files/etc/rsyslog.conf
/files/etc/rsyslog.conf/entry/selector/facility = "*"
/files/etc/rsyslog.conf/entry/selector/level = "*"
/files/etc/rsyslog.conf/entry/action/hostname = "[2001::1]"
/files/etc/rsyslog.conf/entry/action/port = "514"
