Description Nikola Kresic 2018-05-02 09:37:32 UTC
Description of problem:
tftp now transfers the file that has CRLF (source file) with the CRLF intact (target file). In the older versions (RHEl 7.4 - tftp-5.2-12.el7.x86_64/tftp-5.2-13.el7.x86_64 for example), there would be conversion of the file on-the-fly so that the target file was in Unix format with only LF. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a file with CRLF on the server side, maybe with unix2dos
2. tftp -v x.x.x.x -m -c get test_file /tmp/test1 
3. file /tmp/test1
/tmp/test1: ASCII text, with CRLF line terminators

Actual results:
change of a tool behaviour inside one major release

Expected results:
no changes

When Red Hat shipped 7.7 on Aug 6, 2019 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 entered Maintenance Support 1 Phase.


That means only "Critical and Important Security errata advisories (RHSAs) and Urgent Priority Bug Fix errata advisories (RHBAs) may be released". This BZ does not appear to meet Maintenance Support 1 Phase criteria so is being closed WONTFIX. If this is critical for your environment please open a case in the Red Hat Customer Portal, https://access.redhat.com ,provide a thorough business justification and ask that the BZ be re-opened for consideration in the next minor release.
