During the development phase of RHEL 7.3 NetworkManager messages disappeared from /tmp/syslog.
Dan, any hint what might be the cause? Or what we need to configure to bring it back?
For QA: We used to log to syslog in 7.2, but added an option to log to journal in 7.3 and unintentionally switched the default.
Not a big deal in the installed system since journald listens on syslog socket there and rsyslogd sucks in the logs from journal; but makes difference in the installer environment.
Requesting additional logs from reporters due to this BZ makes working on 7.3 bugs harder to Anaconda team.
The 1:1.4.0-0.4.git20160727.9446481f build does not fix the problem for me.
I've tested with http://download.eng.brq.redhat.com/pub/rhel/rel-eng/RHEL-7.3-20160811.0/compose/Server/x86_64/os/ having newer build NetworkManager-1.4.0-0.5.beta1.el7 but it doesn't not work with the 1:1.4.0-0.4.git20160727.9446481f either.

oh right... there was a bug in the fix :(
1.4.0-0.6 will be it.

output of journalctl -u NetworkManager from anaconda
Current nigthly http://download.eng.brq.redhat.com/pub/rhel/nightly/RHEL-7.3-20160818.n.0/compose/Server/x86_64/os/ with NetworkManager 1.4.0-0.6.beta1.el7 still does not seem to log into syslog in installer. I am attaching output of journalctl -u NetworkManager.
Is there any way we can help to debug the issue?
Perhaps there may be some problem also on Anaconda side?

/tmp/syslog missing NM messages

no idea, why it still fails. It really shouldn't.
Back to Lubomir :(
We probably need to update our rsyslog configuration in installer. It seems that we are hitting a journald, NM, syslogd services start race condition in 7.3 in installer. Looking into it.
The bug seems to be fixed on NetworkManager's side with NetworkManager-1.4.0-0.6.beta1.el7 release.
Waiting for anaconda to sort out the rsyslog configuration...

This will be fixed in lorax: bug 1369439
NM now correctly logs into syslog. It can be read afterwards in /var/log/anaconda/syslog.
