Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, it was possible to configure rsyslogd and netconsole, two network dependant services, on a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor node without networking properly configured. This was potentially confusing. Now, it is not possible to configured rsyslogd and netconsole on a hypervisor node until networking is configured, and a hint has been added to the configuration screen for these services to inform users that networking must be configured first.

Description of problem:
If not configure network,the Rsyslog and Netconsole can be configured in Logging Page.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RHEV-H(make sure you didn't configure network first)
2.Configure Rsyslog server and netconsole server under Logging Page.
3.Focus on Logging menu.
4.Then drop to shell, check the status of rsyslog/netconsole service

Actual results:
1. Server Address/Server Port fields of Rsyslog and Netconsole show configuration info in Logging menu..
2. rsyslog service is running, and netconsole module not loaded

Expected results:
1.Rsyslog/Netconsole service can't be set before configuring network.
2.Server Address/Server Port fields of Rsyslog and Netconsole should be grayed in Logging Page.

Additional info:

Comment 2 Fabian Deutsch 2012-09-07 03:52:00 EDT
I see two ways
(a) graying out the entry fields or
(b) add a note that the network has to be configured

Maybe it makes sense to use a and b, otherwise teh user might not know why it's grayed out.
Comment 3 Mike Burns 2012-09-07 07:01:35 EDT
Take a look at the RHEV-M or ovirt-engine configuration screen without network enabled.  We should do something similar to be consistent.
Comment 4 Fabian Deutsch 2012-09-13 05:22:29 EDT
The following (upstream) patch introduces a hint that the network is down and grays out all input fields when no network is available.


Tested as follows:
1. Apply patch
2. Disable the network
3. Navigate to Logging page, heading is changed and entries are disabled.
4. Enable network
5. Navigate to Logging page, heading is normal and entries are enabled.

Test version:

Test steps:
1. Disable the network
2. Navigate to Logging page, heading is changed and entries are disabled.
3. Enable network
4. Navigate to Logging page, heading is normal and entries are enabled

So the bug is fixed, change bug status to VERIFIED.
