Description John Kissane 2012-09-03 09:37:53 EDT
Description of problem:
ocsinventory-agent does not send the network information to the server in Fedora 17

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup an F17 client & install the OCS agent
2. Check on the server if the IP address of the client is available
Actual results:
Client info on OCS server lacks the network inforlation

Expected results:
Network info such as MAC address & IP address available

Additional info:
Probably due to the different layout of the 'ifconfig' out in F17:

Eg: F16 host

lnxd4bed999c3ce (42) ifconfig em1
em1       Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr D4:BE:D9:99:C3:CE  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::d6be:d9ff:fe99:c3ce/64 Scope:Link
          RX packets:4345512 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:1681257 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

          RX bytes:4767580243 (4.4 GiB)  TX bytes:564583884 (538.4 MiB)
          Interrupt:20 Memory:e1a00000-e1a20000 

F17 host:

lnx0023ae8c33b6 (42) ifconfig em1
