Description Gianluca Cecchi 2012-11-20 16:32:31 UTC
Description of problem:
/etc/hosts doesn't persist

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

# cat /etc/redhat-release
oVirt Node Hypervisor release 2.5.5 (0.1.fc17)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit /etc/hosts
2. reboot the oVirt Node
3. edit /etc/hosts
Actual results:
it doesn't contain previous modifications

Expected results:
it contains previous modifications

Additional info:

On oVirt Node:
# persist /etc/hosts
File already persisted: /etc/hosts

But actually at reboot my modification is not there again....

Comment 1 Mike Burns 2013-02-05 21:32:21 UTC

a previous patch introduced this regression.  We require some form of /etc/hosts and the script to write the minimal one was checking if the file was empty instead of not empty

merged and available in the next release
