AutoYaST network configuration broken by updates

Hello,

configuring network settings in an AutoYaST profile does not work anymore for SLES-12.
It worked for SLES11-SP3 for years and for SLES-12 with patches up to Aug. 10 2015.
It stopped working when appying updates at Sep. 16 2015. I did no tests with intermediate
patch levels. With the today patches applied, it does still not work!

To reproduce the behaviour, make an installation with the following profile and see,
/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth1 and -eth2 are missing, and the interfaces are not
configured (ip a). ethtool shows “link detected” for all interfaces (kvm on SLES-12).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf8"?> dhcp eth0 auto no dhcp eth1 auto no static eth2 auto no 192.168.123.5 255.255.255.128 head.de autoyast-test false false false linux root

That would seem to be your best option. Perhaps you can update this
thread when you have an answer? I’ll also try asking someone next week
during SUSECon.

Thanks.

Seeing the same problem here, along with some other bugs concerning connecting to the registration server and repositories. I use ask dialogs to enter the network information, but that is probably irrelevant.
Hope you update the thread when you get a response to your SR.

As far as I know ask-dialogs just modify “/tmp/profile/modified.xml”, so I also suppose that’s not relevant. I will post here, when there is a valuable response.

The bug is fixed in yast2-network-3.1.112.10-2.19.1.x86_64.rpm, which mentions 2 bugs related to
AutoYaST2 and networking. It is available since Nov. 5th.
Sadly support just said “It works fine for me”, but at least it led me to check the update channel.
Wish I had access to the bug database…

So long,
Oliver

Thanks for taking the time to update this thread.

Whilst you may not have access to the bug database you do have access to
the RPM’s own changelog (via "rpm -q --changelog ") but
unfortunately on this occasion it doesn’t appear to have been updated
(which seems odd so I’ll report to my contacts).

HTH.
