IP of rhevm bridge should be greyed out when rhevm has static IP configuration
Last modified: 2016-02-10 14:49:44 EST
Description of problem:
You can't change static IP configuration on rhevm bridge, so it should be greyed out. The situation now is that you can change the ip, but when pushing the ok button you get an error message that you need to reinstall the host in order to change IP
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with static ip configuration
2. Try to change ip
You get an error message: The management network address cannot be modified without reinstalling the host
IP should be greyed out and this message should be in tool tip.
Error while executing action:
Cannot setup Networks. The management network address cannot be modified without reinstalling the host, since this address was used to create the host's certification.
Some documentation for posterity's sake: the bug wasn't fixed as proposed, but rather the behavior was changed so that the IP address of ANY network (not only management) can be changed if and only if it hadn't been equal to the hostname, as in that case (and only in that case) it is known for sure that the engine would lose connectivity to the host.
