Bug report changed to ON_QA status by Errata System.
A QE request has been submitted for advisory RHBA-2016:25933-01

Comment 1 Victor Toso 2017-05-11 13:38:17 UTC
Upstream agent does not show the problem. Rebase should fix it indeed.

Comment 8 Victor Toso 2017-12-01 15:45:40 UTC
So, it seems that this bug works as expected with new vdagent from bug 1444514 which is currently in ON_QA.

Comment 9 Victor Toso 2017-12-11 08:00:30 UTC
Can be verified after bug 1444514, moving to ON_QA

Comment 11 Victor Toso 2018-02-12 15:05:18 UTC
Adding Fixed in Version based on comment #9

Comment 12 Radek Duda 2018-02-12 16:13:09 UTC
