Hi tlitovsk,

We cannot reproduce this bug on our site and I notice that there is a patch for this bug.

If this patch is merged into RHEV-H target build in the feature, I want to know could you help us to verify this bug on RHEV-H target build ?

If you cannot verify this bug, we need to ask patch owner to provide the detail steps to do sanity only test to verify this bug.

I wonder if the root cause of this issue is the same as with the other dhcp localhos.localdomain problem like bug 1254580
Comment 7 Sandro Bonazzola 2015-10-26 08:36:25 EDT
this is an automated message. oVirt 3.6.0 RC3 has been released and GA is targeted to next week, Nov 4th 2015.
Please review this bug and if not a blocker, please postpone to a later release.
All bugs not postponed on GA release will be automatically re-targeted to

- 3.6.1 if severity >= high
- 4.0 if severity < high
Comment 8 Fabian Deutsch 2015-11-03 09:32:46 EST
Moving this out for now, because it's not clear what the root cause is.
Comment 11 Fabian Deutsch 2015-11-17 07:11:08 EST
Lowering the priority because QE can not reproduce it, see comment 5.
Comment 12 Fabian Deutsch 2015-11-23 10:42:30 EST
Tolik, can you still reproduce this issue?
Otherwise I tend to close it and abandon the patch.

It might be related to bug 1232338.
Comment 13 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2015-11-30 16:13:27 EST
Hi Tolik,

I have tried to reproduce your report using rhev-hypervisor7-7.2-20151123.0.iso but I couldn't (as Chaofeng Wu tried as well in comment#3). The vdsm in the iso is vdsm-4.16.30-1.el7ev. Closing this bug for now, in case it reappear, please re-open.
