Description Yedidyah Bar David 2018-03-20 10:56:52 UTC
Description of problem:


This affects specifically:

1. Adding ovirt-requests-log to ssl.conf, bug 1347631.

2. Disabling TLSv1.0, bug 1388456.

So systems upgraded from 4.0 will not have these two configured.

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

All versions in principle. In practice:

- Between 3.3 and 3.6 we didn't change httpd conf much

- Upgrade from el6 to el7 was not possible, which was usually done at 3.6->4.0. engine-backup was changed to make engine-setup always ask during restore, bug 1318580.

- Upgrades from 4.0 are later are affected.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and setup 4.0 or 4.1 engine
2. Upgrade to a later version
3. grep -E 'CustomLog logs/ovirt-requests-log|^SSLProtocol' /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

Actual results:

engine-setup does not ask about, nor reconfigure, apache httpd.

Output of the command in step 3 is empty.

Expected results:

engine-setup checks if changes are needed, queries the user if so, and reconfigures.

Output in step 3 is identical to the output of the same command on a clean 4.2 setup, which is:

SSLProtocol all -SSLv3 -TLSv1
CustomLog logs/ovirt-requests-log  "%t %h \"Correlation-Id: %{Correlation-Id}o\" \"Duration: %Dus\" \"%r\" %b"

Additional info:

Current behavior was introduced deliberately, by the following patch:


which was included since 3.4.
