In v7 1.2, a problem has been observed that network test included sit0 interface which is not necessarily required for testing. This issue has been fixed in v7 1.3, now sit0 interface is no longer planned nor executed during network testing.

Description IBM Bug Proxy 2010-08-24 22:40:47 UTC
-- Problem description --
The network test fails on sit0 interface.

Steps to reproduce:

1. v7 run --test=network --server 10.1.1.9

The output of sit0 test:

mkdir -p /tmp/v7-network-QnhUsT/mnt/tests/V7/v7/network
cp -a testinfo.desc runtest.sh network.py Makefile
/tmp/v7-network-QnhUsT/mnt/tests/V7/v7/network
install -m 0755 runtest.sh /tmp/v7-network-QnhUsT/mnt/tests/V7/v7/network
chmod a+x ./runtest.sh ./network.py

The test appears to fail because no

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-sit0 file appears to have been created.

what should ibm do?

IMO, the tester needs to configure ipv6 to get the sit0 interface

------- Comment From hienn@us.ibm.com 2010-09-07 15:54 EDT-------
The machine p7 (8233-E8B) has problem to install snap12.  So, I cannot try the suggestion on the machine. However, I tried Red Hat's system-config-network utility on another system, but it doesn't have option to configure sit interfaces.

My question is it is required that network test should include sit0 interface (IPV6 tunnel to IPV4 - that is not default for network) ?

Comment 6 Rob Landry 2010-09-08 17:48:16 UTC
Generally speaking sit0 would not be required testing.  The required testing is for the hardware NIC or the virtual hardware NIC as applicable.  If this in turn requires sit0 or for some reason is itself called sit0 then proper configuration & testing of sit0 would be required.  (The latter case would likely cause other delay for name space collision.)

I reinstalled snap13 and just marked configure network as IUV4. sit0 has not been shown up.

Retested  with RHEL6 RC1 with V7-1.2-25. At beginning, when doing V7 plan, v7 print. sit0 not shown up. But when running network tet. I promped me "do you want to testst0 (y/n). If saying no, it quit the test, sying yes: it adding sit0 interface together with eth0, eth1, and sit0 always fails.

Comment 10 Rob Landry 2010-09-24 17:57:27 UTC
Is there hardware associated with sit0 or just the ipv4/6 tunnel?

The '--disable --device sit0' and/or '--device {not sit0}' should allow for control of which device(s) get tested.

Can we get a copy of the results rpm, including the info and failed network runs?

After disabling sit0, network test went fine. Do you still need a copy of the failed network results rpm and etc?

Comment 12 Rob Landry 2010-09-27 15:20:29 UTC
I don't think that should not be needed.  With the confirmation that disabling sit0 works, I think we can add sit* to the list of interfaces to ignore in v7.

Greg does this sound like a reasonable idea?

------- Comment From hienn@us.ibm.com 2010-09-27 11:23 EDT-------
The problem can be resolved with options --disable --device sit0 when doing network test.

Yes.

Comment 15 Rob Landry 2010-11-19 15:55:36 UTC
I believe the end result is sit0 should be added to the ignore list for network interfaces.

change the severity to high as 'disable' sit0 works

Comment 21 Rob Landry 2011-03-28 15:16:50 UTC
Can the test suite beta (v7-1.3-19) be tested to verify this issue is resolved?

Working on the test, will post the results when done.
