Description Pavel Moravec 2021-02-02 09:34:40 UTC
Description of problem:
For "sos report --batch --build --no-report -o apache -k apache.log=yes", sos_logs/sos.log prints:

2021-02-02 09:38:25,187 INFO: [sos.report:setup] effective options now: --batch --build --noreport --only-plugins apache --plugopts apache.log=on

Some of the options are invalid / cant be used on cmdline:

--plugopts apache.log=on

See https://github.com/sosreport/sos/issues/2288#issuecomment-771473281 for the complete list of such options.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Call sos report with either option mentioned in the https://github.com/sosreport/sos/issues/2288#issuecomment-771473281 .
2. Grep for "effective options" in sos_logs/sos.log to see if valid option was printed there.

Actual results:
Invalid options printed there.

Expected results:
cmdline options to match "effective options".

Additional info:
some cmdline options names will change, that's ok/expected.
