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.

Fixed In Version: rhel-system-roles-1.18.0-1.el8
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
.Configuration by the `metrics` RHEL System Role follows symbolic links correctly When the `mssql pcp` package is installed, the `mssql.conf` file is located in `/etc/pcp/mssql/` and is targeted by the symbolic link `/var/lib/pcp/pmdas/mssql/mssql.conf`. Previously, however, the `metrics` role overwrote the symbolic link instead of following it and configuring `mssql.conf`. Consequently, running the `metrics` role changed the symbolic link to a regular file and the configuration therefore only affected the `/var/lib/pcp/pmdas/mssql/mssql.conf` file. This resulted in a failed symbolic link, and the main configuration file `/etc/pcp/mssql/mssql.conf` was not affected by the configuration. The problem is now fixed and the `follow: yes` option to follow the symbolic link has been added to the `metrics` role. As a result, the `metrics` role preserves the symbolic links and correctly configures the main configuration file.
