Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, when invalid static network configuration settings were entered into the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor TUI, the type was set to "static" for the runtime of the TUI and never changed during the runtime of the TUI, even if the configuration was successful changed to used DHCP. Now the correct configuration type is updated correctly when network configuration changes.

screenshot of Network Detail Page

Description of problem:
At first, configure network by using "Static" Protocol, keep "IP Address" label,"Netmask" label and "Gateway" label to blank and apply it,
then, configure network again by using "DHCP" Protocol, the network can be configured success, but the network detail page still displays that "Static" is marked "*" instead of "DHCP".

However, if input "IP Address","Netmask" and "Gateway" when configuring network by using "Static", this problem won't happen. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEV-H.
2. Configure network.
4. Enter network detail page and configure network by using "Static"
5. Keep "IP Address" ,"Netmask" and "Gateway" to blank and press the "apply" button direct.
6. Then configure this network interface again by using "DHCP"
7. Focus on Network detail page.

Actual results:
The network detail page still displays that "Static" is marked "*" instead of "DHCP" on TUI

Expected results:
The "DHCP" should be marked "*" to show the network configured by using "DHCP"

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 02:33:01 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 21:51:53 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
Comment 4 Mike Burns 2012-07-13 14:08:08 EDT
Simple fix:  don't allow configuration if IP Address, Netmask, Gateway aren't set.
Comment 5 Fabian Deutsch 2012-07-30 10:50:29 EDT
The problem was related to an in-tui caching of the previous (invalid) static network configuration data which never got reset.
Should be fixed with:


1. Install Node
2. Pull updated o-c-setup
3. Login
4. Configure network w/ dhcp
5. Configure network static, remove ip, gw and netmask
6. Press apply
(Error dialog appears)
7. Configure network w/ dhcp
8. Enter NIC details page, dhcp is marked
Comment 8 cshao 2012-10-31 01:24:44 EDT
Test version:

Configure network with dhcp, enter NIC details page, dhcp is marked.
But configure network with DHCP+Vlan ID, disable is marked, so the fixed is incomplete, please see attachment.
Change bug status to ASSIGNED
