RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Comment 1 Jakub Jelen 2020-02-27 09:12:25 UTC
The rdomain functionality is in openssh since openssh-7.6p1 so RHEL8 is the first RHEL release bringing this feature. The release notes [1] say that the rdomain keywords are supported also in the match blocks and ListenAddress, which should work also on Linux somehow.

I do not see this option documented in any Red Hat documentation (if you find it somewhere, please, let me know). It would probably make sense to update manual pages to explicitly list this as this work only in OpenBSD and probably make the option no-op in the configuration parsing already. I filled upstream bug with proposed patch.

Comment 2 jcalhoun 2020-02-28 01:12:43 UTC
Hey Jakub,

Thank you for looking into this. I'll need to do some digging to see if the directive exists in any forward-facing Red Hat documentation, but this mainly arose from the existence of the directive without the specification for OpenBSD in our man pages for sshd_config that shipped with RHEL 8+. It seems you've already addressed this based on your last update. I'll let you know if I end up finding any mention of RDomain outside of the man pages. Thanks again!
