Description Terry Bowling 2018-12-19 15:47:08 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1660923 +++

Ability to perform system rollbacks in Cockpit to provide the ability for customers to rollback changes or package updates after making system changes.

Probably this will involve using LVM snapshots and BOOM similar to the inplace upgrade tooling.

Further details and user stories can be found in Jira.

Adding two blocker bugs. We can work around bug 1663915 in Cockpit, but bug 1663864 is rather nasty and will break booting pretty hard in a lot of scenarios.

Details on https://projects.engineering.redhat.com/browse/RHELBU-38

Comment 3 Martin Pitt 2019-03-13 09:59:28 UTC
Unsetting the target release, as it turns out this needs to wait for the snapshot-manager API, it's too brittle/dangerous to offer it with just basic LVM tools. So maybe 7.8, or if that doesn't get new features any more, just 8.x.

Comment 4 Martin Pitt 2019-06-04 05:45:31 UTC
Corresponding to https://projects.engineering.redhat.com/browse/RHELBU-38, I close this for RHEL 7. It requires an entirely new API (snapshot-manager) to work reliably, and it's getting too late for RHEL 7.7. This will be a RHEL 8 feature.
