Identify and remediate systems affected by this advisory.
Updated cockpit-ovirt packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available.
Cockpit is a Linux system administration tool with a web UI, easy setup, and minimal system footprint at runtime. When installed on hosts in Red Hat Virtualization, it provides monitoring and management functions beyond those available in the Administration Portal. Cockpit is installed by default on Red Hat Virtualization Host (RHVH).
Changes to the cockpit-ovirt component:
- Previously, you could only test a host's network connectivity with ICMP (ping). Sometimes the gateway does not reply to a ping request, such as when ping is blocked at the network level. When such a failure occurred during the installation of a self-hosted engine, the installation failed.
Now you can test network connectivity by checking if the DNS resolution is working, by pinging the gateway, by testing a TCP connection to a configurable port on a configurable host, or you can proceed with installation without running any test. (BZ#1709895)
