Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1475553
Outgoing SMTP E-mail Server settings not saved on first attempt
Last modified: 2017-08-29 17:25:16 EDT
Description of problem:
We are noting that on CF 4.5 when testing and/or saving Outgoing SMTP E-mail Server settings that some do not appear to be used/saved on the first attempt. In particular, we are finding that we have to toggle some of the settings save and toggle back to get what we need. Specifically, the first issue we encounter each time is that the SSL Verify Mode => None does not take effect. Since the server here has a bad SSL cert, we want to use None, but we can't get None to work until we set it peer, save, set it to none, save, even though the default is none.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
/var/www/miq/vmdb/log/last_settings.txt also shows nothing set for :openssl_verify_mode: until toggling the setting.
See attached pics.
