Verification of signatures using the MD5 hash algorithm is disabled in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
It is impossible to connect to any Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) Enterprise Access Point (AP) that requires MD5 signed certificates. To work around this problem, copy the wpa_supplicant.service file from the /usr/lib/systemd/system/ directory to the /etc/systemd/system/ directory and add the following line to the Service section of the file:
Then run the
systemctl daemon-reload command as root to reload the service file.
Important: Note that MD5 certificates are highly insecure and Red Hat does not recommend using them. (BZ#1062656)
Mellanox PMD in DPDK causes a performance drop when IOMMU is enabled inside the guest
When running Mellanox Poll Mode Driver (PMD) in Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) in the guest, a performance drop is expected if the
iommu=pt option is not set.
To make Mellanox PMD work properly, I/O memory management unit (IOMMU) needs to be explicitly enabled in the kernel, and use the passthrough mode. For doing that, pass the
intel_iommu=on option (for Intel systems) to the kernel command line. In addition, use
iommu=pt to have a proper I/O performance. (BZ#1578688)
freeradius might fail when upgrading from RHEL 7.3
A new configuration property,
correct_escapes, in the
/etc/raddb/radiusd.conf file was introduced in the
freeradius version distributed since RHEL 7.4. When an administrator sets
true, the new regular expression syntax for backslash escaping is expected. If
correct_escapes is set to
false, the old syntax is expected where backslashes are also escaped. For backward compatibility reasons,
false is the default value.
When upgrading, configuration files in the
/etc/raddb/ directory are overwritten unless modified by the administrator, so the value of
correct_escapes might not always correspond to which type of syntax is used in all the configuration files. As a consequence, authentication with
freeradius might fail.
To prevent the problem from occurring, after upgrading from
freeradius version 3.0.4 (distributed with RHEL 7.3) and earlier, make sure all configuration files in the
/etc/raddb/ directory use the new escaping syntax (no double backslash characters can be found) and that the value of
/etc/raddb/radiusd.conf is set to
