info test patch to use --no-progressbar only on RHEL5
Comment 3 Rob Landry 2010-05-26 11:18:52 EDT
bad news is older versions of RHEL5 include a version of sysreport without this option.
Comment 4 Rob Landry 2010-05-26 11:23:13 EDT
At least RHEL5 GA, I'm not certain the log of when and where sysreport changes.
Comment 5 Greg Nichols 2010-05-26 12:35:02 EDT
You mean sosreport, not sysreport.

So we should remove --no-progressbar compeletely, and add this fix to the v7 1.1 errata as well.
Comment 6 Rob Landry 2010-05-26 12:59:06 EDT
yes sorry, old versions of sosreport do not support the --no-progress bar option; IIRC the reason that was put in was because the shift to sosreport causes long strings of gibberish in the logs so it's not a bad thing to have unfortunately it seems to come and go between versions of sosreport.

Comment 9 Rob Landry 2010-05-27 09:59:56 EDT
is it worth it to go ahead and presume that at some point the --help will be wrong and v7 should try again if sysreport with --no-progress exits failed?
