>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.
