RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Doc Text:
_Dnsmasq_ now supports the *ra-param* option With this update, *dnsmasq* can change the default values of IPv6 Router Advertisement.

Description Neil Wilson 2016-11-24 13:30:27 UTC
Description of problem:

dnsmasq lacks the ra-param option

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

Name        : dnsmasq
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 2.66
Release     : 14.el7_2.1

Additional info:

The version of dnsmasq in RHEL7 lacks the ra-param option available in version 2.67 and above - which means that dnsmasq can't be used as a full replacement for radvd.

The particular use case here is when routers switch over and you want to lower the route priority/lifetime of one vs. the other.
