In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3, the iptables-services package contained a post-uninstall script that caused iptables, the ip6tables services, or both to restart. As a consequence, the current configuration was replaced with a manually saved configuration in the /etc/sysconfig/ip6tables file. This update removes the "service restart" command from the post-uninstall script. As a result, updates to the package do not cause a service restart.
