Description of problem:
Using the rhn.system.net_interface.ip_address(eth_device) macro in
provisioning will pad any single digit in the quad notation IP address
for an interface with a preceeding 0. So any given quad will be at
least two digits in length after provisioning.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<device> to be provisioned
2. Use macro rhn.system.net_interface.ip_address(device) for
3. Provision RHN satellite registered client system, using
Actual Results: IPADDRESS= directive in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<device> will have a 0 prefix for
any quad member that is a single digit. eg if current IP assigned to
eth0 interface is 172.21.5.71, then after provisioning file, IPADDRESS
will be 172.21.05.71.
Expected Results: IPADDRESS= should be exact IP address currently
assigned to interface.
Reassigned based on 4/27 RHN 400 status meeting.

This should be fixed in upstream; reverted previous svn commit and
cloned original rhpl bug 157657 as RHEL4 rhpl bug 451002.
This bug should be fixed upstream by bug 451002.
I updated the upstream bug's rhel4.9 flag to ?
It seems to me that the upstream fix has fallen off their radar, and will hopefully get back on their radar.
Although misleading, I am adding ClosedValid to the QA Whiteboard.
