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.

systemd-resolved doesn't appear in the technology preview section of the release notes for any RHEL release

>In RHEL 8, Red Hat provides systemd-resolved as an unsupported Technology Preview.


Looking RHEL 8 release notes only mentions of systemd-resolved I see are in RHEL 8.1 & 8.2 has mention of systemd-resolved in known issues

And is definitely NOT mentioned in the RHEL 8.3 Network Technology Preview section

Furthermore, we have the following that states systemd-resolved is supported!

Appears this may just be a Tech Preview note that was left in the Configure & Managing Networking RHEL 8 Documentation.  Can we please get confirmation?

Comment 3 Marc Muehlfeld 2020-12-14 08:21:28 UTC
Lukas, can you please confirm that systemd-resolved is fully supported in RHEL 8 or that it's Tech Preview?
If it is supported, which RHEL 8 version was the first one, in which we fully supported it?

Comment 4 Lukáš Nykrýn 2021-01-14 16:03:50 UTC
It really should be just a tech preview in rhel8.

Comment 5 James Hartsock 2021-01-14 16:11:03 UTC
So what does this mean for customers that are using it thinking that it is supported since it is not in any of the RHEL 8 minor version Release Notes - Tech Preview section?

I think this is the location that most feel is authoritative for anything that is provided as Tech Preview in a given RHEL release.

Comment 6 Marc Muehlfeld 2021-01-14 16:17:26 UTC
Lukas Nykryn confirmed on Red Hat-internal IRC that systemd-resolved is Tech Preview in RHEL 8.

I already updated the KCS article: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/3771891

Tomorrow I'll write a Tech Preview RN and add it to the RHEL 8.x Release Notes documents.

Comment 7 James Hartsock 2021-01-14 17:32:48 UTC
Would be nice if the systemd-resolved.service had an ExecPre= or something that did the following too:
  /bin/echo 29 > /proc/sys/kernel/tainted

Would make it clear for customers, and we have it documented at:

Comment 8 James Hartsock 2021-01-14 17:34:18 UTC
Guess that would need to be, right?

Comment 12 Marc Muehlfeld 2021-01-18 13:38:42 UTC
Lucie, can you please add the RN from the Doc Text field to the Tech Preview sections in the RHEL 8.0 - 8.3 Release Notes documents? It is missing there. Thanks.
