Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, at boot time or after running the "systemctl restart iptables ip6tables" command, the systemd service was running both iptables and ip6tables services in parallel. Due to the internal locking mechanism that prevented concurrent updates, one of the two services failed to start. This update adds the --wait option to the "iptables-restore" and "ip6tables-restore" commands to make them wait until the lock becomes free, and the described problem no longer occurs.

Description Oneata Mircea Teodor 2017-08-14 11:17:43 UTC
This bug has been copied from bug #1477413 and has been proposed to be backported to 7.4 z-stream (EUS).

I don't think -17 is affected. We currently experience failures for OpenStack Neutron with -18 with a similar issue; with -17, it passes broken tests just fine.

By the quick look at backported iptables patches, it doesn't seem like xlock was a thing in -17 at all, so you can't possibly get the error there.

This is affecting Red Hat OpenStack CI, can we have the latest status here?

Comment 16 Eric Garver 2017-08-30 16:41:15 UTC
I'm putting this back ON_QA. There is a new bug 1486871 to track the issue found in comment 6.
