Chapter 7. Deprecated functionality

This part provides an overview of functionality that has been deprecated in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

Deprecated functionality continues to be supported until the end of life of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. Deprecated functionality will likely not be supported in future major releases of this product and is not recommended for new deployments. For the most recent list of deprecated functionality within a particular major release, refer to the latest version of release documentation.

Deprecated hardware components are not recommended for new deployments on the current or future major releases. Hardware driver updates are limited to security and critical fixes only. Red Hat recommends replacing this hardware as soon as reasonably feasible.

A package can be deprecated and not recommended for further use. Under certain circumstances, a package can be removed from a product. Product documentation then identifies more recent packages that offer functionality similar, identical, or more advanced to the one deprecated, and provides further recommendations.

For information regarding functionality that is present in RHEL 7 but has been removed in RHEL 8, see Considerations in adopting RHEL 8 .

7.1. Installer and image creation

Several Kickstart commands and options have been deprecated

Using the following commands and options in RHEL 8 Kickstart files will print a warning in the logs.

  • auth or authconfig
  • device
  • deviceprobe
  • dmraid
  • install
  • lilo
  • lilocheck
  • mouse
  • multipath
  • bootloader --upgrade
  • ignoredisk --interactive
  • partition --active
  • reboot --kexec

Where only specific options are listed, the base command and its other options are still available and not deprecated.

For more details and related changes in Kickstart, see the Kickstart changes section of the Considerations in adopting RHEL 8 document.

(BZ#1642765)

The --interactive option of the ignoredisk Kickstart command has been deprecated

Using the --interactive option in future releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux will result in a fatal installation error. It is recommended that you modify your Kickstart file to remove the option.

(BZ#1637872)

The Kickstart autostep command has been deprecated

The autostep command has been deprecated. The related section about this command has been removed from the RHEL 8 documentation.

(BZ#1904251)

lorax-composer back end for Image Builder is deprecated in RHEL 8

The previous back end lorax-composer for Image Builder is considered deprecated. It will only receive select fixes for the rest of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 life cycle and will be omitted from future major releases.  Red Hat recommends that you uninstall lorax-composer the and install osbuild-composer back end instead.

See Composing a customized RHEL system image for more details.

(BZ#1893767)

7.2. Software management

rpmbuild --sign is deprecated

With this update, the rpmbuild --sign command has become deprecated. Using this command in future releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux can result in an error. It is recommended that you use the rpmsign command instead.

(BZ#1688849)

7.3. Shells and command-line tools

The OpenEXR component has been deprecated

The OpenEXR component has been deprecated. Hence, the support for the EXR image format has been dropped from the imagecodecs module.

(BZ#1886310)

7.4. Security

NSS SEED ciphers are deprecated

The Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) library will not support TLS cipher suites that use a SEED cipher in a future release. To ensure smooth transition of deployments that rely on SEED ciphers when NSS removes support, Red Hat recommends enabling support for other cipher suites.

Note that SEED ciphers are already disabled by default in RHEL.

(BZ#1817533)

TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are deprecated

The TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 protocols are disabled in the DEFAULT system-wide cryptographic policy level. If your scenario, for example, a video conferencing application in the Firefox web browser, requires using the deprecated protocols, switch the system-wide cryptographic policy to the LEGACY level:

# update-crypto-policies --set LEGACY

For more information, see the Strong crypto defaults in RHEL 8 and deprecation of weak crypto algorithms Knowledgebase article on the Red Hat Customer Portal and the update-crypto-policies(8) man page.

(BZ#1660839)

DSA is deprecated in RHEL 8

The Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) is considered deprecated in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. Authentication mechanisms that depend on DSA keys do not work in the default configuration. Note that OpenSSH clients do not accept DSA host keys even in the LEGACY system-wide cryptographic policy level.

(BZ#1646541)

SSL2 Client Hello has been deprecated in NSS

The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol version 1.2 and earlier allow to start a negotiation with a Client Hello message formatted in a way that is backward compatible with the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol version 2. Support for this feature in the Network Security Services (NSS) library has been deprecated and it is disabled by default.

Applications that require support for this feature need to use the new SSL_ENABLE_V2_COMPATIBLE_HELLO API to enable it. Support for this feature may be removed completely in future releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

(BZ#1645153)

TPM 1.2 is deprecated

The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) secure cryptoprocessor standard version was updated to version 2.0 in 2016. TPM 2.0 provides many improvements over TPM 1.2, and it is not backward compatible with the previous version. TPM 1.2 is deprecated in RHEL 8, and it might be removed in the next major release.

(BZ#1657927)

crypto-policies derived properties are now deprecated

With the introduction of scopes for crypto-policies directives in custom policies, the following derived properties have been deprecated: tls_cipher, ssh_cipher, ssh_group, ike_protocol, and sha1_in_dnssec. Additionally, the use of the protocol property without specifying a scope is now deprecated as well. See the crypto-policies(7) man page for recommended replacements.

(BZ#2011208)

Runtime disabling SELinux using /etc/selinux/config is now deprecated

Runtime disabling SELinux using the SELINUX=disabled option in the /etc/selinux/config file has been deprecated. In RHEL 9, when you disable SELinux only through /etc/selinux/config, the system starts with SELinux enabled but with no policy loaded.

If your scenario really requires to completely disable SELinux, Red Hat recommends disabling SELinux by adding the selinux=0 parameter to the kernel command line as described in the Changing SELinux modes at boot time section of the Using SELinux title.

(BZ#1932222)

The ipa SELinux module removed from selinux-policy

The ipa SELinux module has been removed from the selinux-policy package because it is no longer maintained. The functionality is now included in the ipa-selinux subpackage.

If your scenario requires the use of types or interfaces from the ipa module in a local SELinux policy, install the ipa-selinux package.

(BZ#1461914)

7.5. Networking

Network scripts are deprecated in RHEL 8

Network scripts are deprecated in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 and they are no longer provided by default. The basic installation provides a new version of the ifup and ifdown scripts which call the NetworkManager service through the nmcli tool. In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, to run the ifup and the ifdown scripts, NetworkManager must be running.

Note that custom commands in /sbin/ifup-local, ifdown-pre-local and ifdown-local scripts are not executed.

If any of these scripts are required, the installation of the deprecated network scripts in the system is still possible with the following command:

~]# yum install network-scripts

The ifup and ifdown scripts link to the installed legacy network scripts.

Calling the legacy network scripts shows a warning about their deprecation.

(BZ#1647725)

The dropwatch tool is deprecated

The dropwatch tool has been deprecated. The tool will not be supported in future releases. Thus the tool is not recommended for new deployments. As a replacement of this package, Red Hat recommends to use the perf command line tool.

For more information on using the perf command line tool, see the Getting started with Perf section on the Red Hat customer portal or the perf man page.

(BZ#1929173)

The cgdcbxd package is deprecated

Control group data center bridging exchange daemon (cgdcbxd) is a service to monitor data center bridging (DCB) netlink events and manage the net_prio control group subsystem. Starting with RHEL 8.5, the cgdcbxd package is deprecated and will be removed in the next major RHEL release.

(BZ#2006665)

7.6. Kernel

Kernel live patching now covers all RHEL minor releases

Since RHEL 8.1, kernel live patches have been provided for selected minor release streams of RHEL covered under the Extended Update Support (EUS) policy to remediate Critical and Important Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs). To accommodate the maximum number of concurrently covered kernels and use cases, the support window for each live patch will be decreased from 12 to 6 months for every minor, major and zStream version of the kernel. It means that on the day a kernel live patch is released, it will cover every minor release and scheduled errata kernel delivered in the past 6 months. For example, 8.4.x will have a one-year support window, but 8.4.x+1 will have 6 months.

For more information about this feature, see Applying patches with kernel live patching.

For details about available kernel live patches, see Kernel Live Patch life cycles.

(BZ#1958250)

Installing RHEL for Real Time 8 using diskless boot is now deprecated

Diskless booting allows multiple systems to share a root file system via the network. While convenient, diskless boot is prone to introducing network latency in realtime workloads. With a future minor update of RHEL for Real Time 8, the diskless booting feature will no longer be supported.

(BZ#1748980)

7.7. File systems and storage

LVM mirror is deprecated

The LVM mirror segment type is now deprecated. Support for mirror will be removed in a future major release of RHEL.

Red Hat recommends that you use LVM RAID 1 devices with a segment type of raid1 instead of mirror. The raid1 segment type is the default RAID configuration type and replaces mirror as the recommended solution.

To convert mirror devices to raid1, see Converting a mirrored LVM device to a RAID1 device.

LVM mirror has several known issues. For details, see known issues in file systems and storage.

(BZ#1827628)

peripety is deprecated

The peripety package is deprecated since RHEL 8.3.

The Peripety storage event notification daemon parses system storage logs into structured storage events. It helps you investigate storage issues.

(BZ#1871953)

VDO write modes other than async are deprecated

VDO supports several write modes in RHEL 8:

  • sync
  • async
  • async-unsafe
  • auto

Starting with RHEL 8.4, the following write modes are deprecated:

sync
Devices above the VDO layer cannot recognize if VDO is synchronous, and consequently, the devices cannot take advantage of the VDO sync mode.
async-unsafe
VDO added this write mode as a workaround for the reduced performance of async mode, which complies to Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability (ACID). Red Hat does not recommend async-unsafe for most use cases and is not aware of any users who rely on it.
auto
This write mode only selects one of the other write modes. It is no longer necessary when VDO supports only a single write mode.

These write modes will be removed in a future major RHEL release.

The recommended VDO write mode is now async.

For more information on VDO write modes, see Selecting a VDO write mode.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-70700)

NFSv3 over UDP has been disabled

The NFS server no longer opens or listens on a User Datagram Protocol (UDP) socket by default. This change affects only NFS version 3 because version 4 requires the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP).

NFS over UDP is no longer supported in RHEL 8.

(BZ#1592011)

VDO manager has been deprecated

The python-based VDO management software has been deprecated and will be removed from RHEL 9. In RHEL 9, it will be replaced by the LVM-VDO integration. It is, therefore, recommended to create VDO volumes using the lvcreate command.

The existing volumes created using the VDO management software can be converted using the /usr/sbin/lvm_import_vdo script, provided by the lvm2 package. For more information on the LVM-VDO implementation, see Introduction to VDO on LVM.

(BZ#1949163)

The elevator kernel command line parameter is deprecated

The elevator kernel command line parameter was used in earlier RHEL releases to set the disk scheduler for all devices. In RHEL 8, the parameter is deprecated.

The upstream Linux kernel has removed support for the elevator parameter, but it is still available in RHEL 8 for compatibility reasons.

Note that the kernel selects a default disk scheduler based on the type of device. This is typically the optimal setting. If you require a different scheduler, Red Hat recommends that you use udev rules or the Tuned service to configure it. Match the selected devices and switch the scheduler only for those devices.

For more information, see Setting the disk scheduler.

(BZ#1665295)

7.8. High availability and clusters

pcs commands that support the clufter tool have been deprecated

The pcs commands that support the clufter tool for analyzing cluster configuration formats have been deprecated. These commands now print a warning that the command has been deprecated and sections related to these commands have been removed from the pcs help display and the pcs(8) man page.

The following commands have been deprecated:

  • pcs config import-cman for importing CMAN / RHEL6 HA cluster configuration
  • pcs config export for exporting cluster configuration to a list of pcs commands which recreate the same cluster

(BZ#1851335)

7.9. Compilers and development tools

libdwarf has been deprecated

The libdwarf library has been deprecated in RHEL 8. The library will likely not be supported in future major releases. Instead, use the elfutils and libdw libraries for applications that wish to process ELF/DWARF files.

Alternatives for the libdwarf-tools dwarfdump program are the binutils readelf program or the elfutils eu-readelf program, both used by passing the --debug-dump flag.

(BZ#1920624)

The gdb.i686 packages are deprecated

In RHEL 8.1, the 32-bit versions of the GNU Debugger (GDB), gdb.i686, were shipped due to a dependency problem in another package. Because RHEL 8 does not support 32-bit hardware, the gdb.i686 packages are deprecated since RHEL 8.4. The 64-bit versions of GDB, gdb.x86_64, are fully capable of debugging 32-bit applications.

If you use gdb.i686 note the following important issues:

  • The gdb.i686 packages will no longer be updated. Users must install gdb.x86_64 instead.
  • If you have gdb.i686 installed, installing gdb.x86_64 will cause dnf to report package gdb-8.2-14.el8.x86_64 obsoletes gdb < 8.2-14.el8 provided by gdb-8.2-12.el8.i686. This is expected. Either uninstall gdb.i686 or pass dnf the --allowerasing option to remove gdb.i686 and install gdb.x8_64.
  • Users will no longer be able to install the gdb.i686 packages on 64-bit systems, that is, those with the libc.so.6()(64-bit) packages.

(BZ#1853140)

7.10. Identity Management

openssh-ldap has been deprecated

The openssh-ldap subpackage has been deprecated in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 and will be removed in RHEL 9. As the openssh-ldap subpackage is not maintained upstream, Red Hat recommends using SSSD and the sss_ssh_authorizedkeys helper, which integrate better with other IdM solutions and are more secure.

By default, the SSSD ldap and ipa providers read the sshPublicKey LDAP attribute of the user object, if available. Note that you cannot use the default SSSD configuration for the ad provider or IdM trusted domains to retrieve SSH public keys from Active Directory (AD), since AD does not have a default LDAP attribute to store a public key.

To allow the sss_ssh_authorizedkeys helper to get the key from SSSD, enable the ssh responder by adding ssh to the services option in the sssd.conf file. See the sssd.conf(5) man page for details.

To allow sshd to use sss_ssh_authorizedkeys, add the AuthorizedKeysCommand /usr/bin/sss_ssh_authorizedkeys and AuthorizedKeysCommandUser nobody options to the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file as described by the sss_ssh_authorizedkeys(1) man page.

(BZ#1871025)

DES and 3DES encryption types have been removed

Due to security reasons, the Data Encryption Standard (DES) algorithm has been deprecated and disabled by default since RHEL 7. With the recent rebase of Kerberos packages, single-DES (DES) and triple-DES (3DES) encryption types have been removed from RHEL 8.

If you have configured services or users to only use DES or 3DES encryption, you might experience service interruptions such as:

  • Kerberos authentication errors
  • unknown enctype encryption errors
  • Kerberos Distribution Centers (KDCs) with DES-encrypted Database Master Keys (K/M) fail to start

Perform the following actions to prepare for the upgrade:

  1. Check if your KDC uses DES or 3DES encryption with the krb5check open source Python scripts. See krb5check on GitHub.
  2. If you are using DES or 3DES encryption with any Kerberos principals, re-key them with a supported encryption type, such as Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). For instructions on re-keying, see Retiring DES from MIT Kerberos Documentation.
  3. Test independence from DES and 3DES by temporarily setting the following Kerberos options before upgrading:

    1. In /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kdc.conf on the KDC, set supported_enctypes and do not include des or des3.
    2. For every host, in /etc/krb5.conf and any files in /etc/krb5.conf.d, set allow_weak_crypto to false. It is false by default.
    3. For every host, in /etc/krb5.conf and any files in /etc/krb5.conf.d, set permitted_enctypes, default_tgs_enctypes, and default_tkt_enctypes and do not include des or des3.
  4. If you do not experience any service interruptions with the test Kerberos settings from the previous step, remove them and upgrade. You do not need those settings after upgrading to the latest Kerberos packages.

(BZ#1877991)

Standalone use of the ctdb service has been deprecated

Since RHEL 8.4, customers are advised to use the ctdb clustered Samba service only when both of the following conditions apply:

  • The ctdb service is managed as a pacemaker resource with the resource-agent ctdb.
  • The ctdb service uses storage volumes that contain either a GlusterFS file system provided by the Red Hat Gluster Storage product or a GFS2 file system.

The stand-alone use case of the ctdb service has been deprecated and will not be included in a next major release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. For further information on support policies for Samba, see the Knowledgebase article Support Policies for RHEL Resilient Storage - ctdb General Policies.

(BZ#1916296)

Running Samba as a PDC or BDC is deprecated

The classic domain controller mode that enabled administrators to run Samba as an NT4-like primary domain controller (PDC) and backup domain controller (BDC) is deprecated. The code and settings to configure these modes will be removed in a future Samba release.

As long as the Samba version in RHEL 8 provides the PDC and BDC modes, Red Hat supports these modes only in existing installations with Windows versions which support NT4 domains. Red Hat recommends not setting up a new Samba NT4 domain, because Microsoft operating systems later than Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 do not support NT4 domains.

If you use the PDC to authenticate only Linux users, Red Hat suggests migrating to Red Hat Identity Management (IdM) that is included in RHEL subscriptions. However, you cannot join Windows systems to an IdM domain. Note that Red Hat continues supporting the PDC functionality IdM uses in the background.

Red Hat does not support running Samba as an AD domain controller (DC).

(BZ#1926114)

The SSSD version of libwbclient has been removed

The SSSD implementation of the libwbclient package was deprecated in RHEL 8.4. As it cannot be used with recent versions of Samba, the SSSD implementation of libwbclient has now been removed.

(BZ#1947671)

7.11. Desktop

The libgnome-keyring library has been deprecated

The libgnome-keyring library has been deprecated in favor of the libsecret library, as libgnome-keyring is not maintained upstream, and does not follow the necessary cryptographic policies for RHEL. The new libsecret library is the replacement that follows the necessary security standards.

(BZ#1607766)

7.12. Graphics infrastructures

AGP graphics cards are no longer supported

Graphics cards using the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) bus are not supported in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. Use the graphics cards with PCI-Express bus as the recommended replacement.

(BZ#1569610)

Motif is deprecated

The Motif widget toolkit is now deprecated. Development in the upstream Motif community is inactive.

The following Motif packages are deprecated, including their development and debugging variants:

  • motif
  • motif-static
  • openmotif
  • openmotif21
  • openmotif22

Red Hat recommends using the GTK toolkit as a replacement. GTK is more maintainable and provides new features compared to Motif.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-98983)

7.13. The web console

The web console no longer supports incomplete translations

The RHEL web console no longer provides translations for languages that have translations available for less than 50 % of the Console’s translatable strings. If the browser requests translation to such a language, the user interface will be in English instead.

(BZ#1666722)

7.14. Red Hat Enterprise Linux System Roles

The geoipupdate package has been deprecated

The geoipupdate package requires a third-party subscription and it also downloads proprietary content. Therefore, the geoipupdate package has been deprecated, and will be removed in the next major RHEL version.

(BZ#1874892)

7.15. Virtualization

virt-manager has been deprecated

The Virtual Machine Manager application, also known as virt-manager, has been deprecated. The RHEL 8 web console, also known as Cockpit, is intended to become its replacement in a subsequent release. It is, therefore, recommended that you use the web console for managing virtualization in a GUI. Note, however, that some features available in virt-manager may not be yet available the RHEL 8 web console.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-10304)

Virtual machine snapshots are not properly supported in RHEL 8

The current mechanism of creating virtual machine (VM) snapshots has been deprecated, as it is not working reliably. As a consequence, it is recommended not to use VM snapshots in RHEL 8.

(BZ#1686057)

The Cirrus VGA virtual GPU type has been deprecated

With a future major update of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the Cirrus VGA GPU device will no longer be supported in KVM virtual machines. Therefore, Red Hat recommends using the stdvga, virtio-vga, or qxl devices instead of Cirrus VGA.

(BZ#1651994)

KVM on IBM POWER has been deprecated

Using KVM virtualization on IBM POWER hardware has become deprecated. As a result, KVM on IBM POWER is still supported in RHEL 8, but will become unsupported in a future major release of RHEL.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-71200)

SecureBoot image verification using SHA1-based signatures is deprecated

Performing SecureBoot image verification using SHA1-based signatures on UEFI (PE/COFF) executables has become deprecated.

Instead, Red Hat recommends using signatures based on the SHA2 algorithm, or later.

(BZ#1935497)

SPICE has been deprecated

The SPICE remote display protocol has become deprecated. Note that SPICE will remain supported in RHEL 8, but Red Hat recommends using alternate solutions for remote display streaming:

  • For remote console access, use the VNC protocol.
  • For advanced remote display functions, use third party tools such as RDP, HP RGS, or Mechdyne TGX.

(BZ#1849563)

7.16. Containers

The Podman varlink-based API v1.0 has been removed

The Podman varlink-based API v1.0 was deprecated in a previous release of RHEL 8. Podman v2.0 introduced a new Podman v2.0 RESTful API. With the release of Podman v3.0, the varlink-based API v1.0 has been completely removed.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-45858)

container-tools:1.0 has been deprecated

The container-tools:1.0 module has been deprecated and will no longer receive security updates. It is recommended to use a newer supported stable module stream, such as container-tools:2.0 or container-tools:3.0.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-59825)

7.17. Deprecated packages

7.18. Deprecated devices

This section lists devices (drivers, adapters) that continue to be supported until the end of life of RHEL 8 but will likely not be supported in future major releases of this product and are not recommended for new deployments. Support for devices other than those listed remains unchanged.

PCI IDs are in the format of vendor:device:subvendor:subdevice. If the subdevice or subvendor:subdevice entry is not listed, devices with any values of such missing entries have been deprecated. To check the PCI IDs of the hardware on your system, run the lspci -nn command.
