Option -D will be removed in RHEL-6 because -a is sufficient. This change
requires release notes

Comment 2 Don Domingo 2007-09-27 22:39:56 EDT
hi Adam, 

please advise if i got the following release note correctly (for RHEL5.1 release
notes updates):

rsh cannot function properly if IP addresses cannot be resolved to hostnames.
You need to use the -a option when running rsh in such an environment.
Comment 3 Adam Tkac 2007-09-28 07:31:35 EDT
This change won't be in RHEL5. This is bug for RHEL6 because I will drop -D
option in RHEL6. So no release note is needed for RHEL5.1

Comment 5 Adam Tkac 2010-01-22 04:14:10 EST
In the end, due compatibility reasons, rshd accepts -D parameter but it has no effect. This bug can be considered as fixed.
