 Boot server configurator
Update Information:

New upstream release - 2.2.3-1

* Tue Jun  5 2012 James Cammarata <jimi at sngx.net> 2.2.3-1
- [BUGFIX] add dns to kernel commandline when using static interface
  (frido at enu.zolder.org)
- [BUGFIX] issue #196 - repo environment variables bleed into other repos
  during sync process This patch has reposync cleanup/restore any environment
  variables that were changed during the process (jimi at sngx.net)
- BUGFIX quick dirty fix to work around an issue where cobbler would not log in ldap
  usernames which contain uppercase characters. at line 60 instead of "if user
  in data", "if user.lower() in data" is used. It would appear the parser puts
  the usernames in data[] in lowercase, and the comparison fails because "user"
  does hold capitalizations. (matthiasvandegaer at hotmail.com)
- [BUGFIX] simplify SELinux check reporting 
  * Remove calls to semanage, policy prevents apps from running that directly 
    (and speeds up check immensely) 
  * Point users at a wiki page which will contain details on ensuring cobbler
    works with SELinux properly (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] issue #117 - incorrect permissions on files in /var/lib/cobbler
  (j-nomura at ce.jp.nec.com)
- [BUGFIX] issue #183 - update objects mgmt classes field when a mgmt class is
  renamed (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] adding some untracked directories and the new augeas lense to the
  setup.py and cobbler.spec files (jimi at sngx.net)
- [FEATURE] Added ability to disable grubby --copy-default behavior for distros that may
  have problems with it (jimi at sngx.net)
- [SECURITY] Major changes to power commands: 
  * Fence options are now based on /usr/sbin/fence_* - so basically anything the 
    fence agents package provides.
  * Templates will now be sourced from /etc/cobbler/power/fence_<powertype>.template.  
    These templates are optional, and are only required if you want to do extra 
    options for a given command. - All options for the fence agent command are sent 
    over STDIN. 
  * Support for ipmitool is gone, use fence_ipmilan instead (which uses ipmitool 
    under the hood anyway). This may apply to other power types if they were provided 
    by a fence_ command. 
  * Modified labels for the power options to be more descriptive. (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] issue #136 - don't allow invalid characters in names when copying
  objects (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] issue #168 - change input_string_or_list to use shlex for split This
  function was using a regular string split, which did not allow quoted or
  escaped strings to be preserved. (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] Correct method to process the template file. This Fixes the previous issue
  and process the template. (charlesrg at gmail.com)
- [BUGFIX] issue #170 - koan now checks length of drivers list before indexing
  (daniel at defreez.com)
- [BUGFIX] Issue #153 - distro delete doesn't remove link from
  /var/www/cobbler/links Link was being created incorrectly during the import
  (jimi at sngx.net)
- [FEATURE] snippets: save/restore boot-device on ppc64 on fedora17 (nacc at us.ibm.com)
- [BUGFIX] Fixed typo in pre_anamon (brandor5 at gmail.com)
- [BUGFIX] Added use of $http_port to server URL in pre_anamon and post_anamon
  (brandor5 at gmail.com)
- [BUGFIX] Fixed dnsmasq issue regarding missing dhcp-host entries (cobbler at basjes.nl)
- [BUGFIX] in buildiso for RedHat based systems. The interface->ip resolution was
  broken when ksdevice=bootif (default) (jorgen.maas at gmail.com)
- [BUGFIX] rename failed for distros that did not live under ks_mirror
  (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] Partial revert of commit 3c81dd3081 - incorrectly removed the 'extends'
  template directive, breaking rendering in django (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] Reverting commit 1d6c53a97, which was breaking spacewalk Changed the web
  interface stuff to use the existing extended_version() remote call
  (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] Minor fix for serializer_pretty_json change, setting indent to 0 was still
  causing more formatted JSON to be output (jimi at sngx.net)
- [SECURITY] Adding PrivateTmp=yes to the cobblerd.service file for systemd
  (jimi at sngx.net)
- [FEATURE] add a config option to enable pretty JSON output (disabled by default)
  (aronparsons at gmail.com)
- [BUGFIX] issue #107 - creating xendomains link for autoboot fails Changing an
  exception to a printed warning, there's no need to completely bomb out on the
  process for this (jimi at sngx.net)

  Added additional logging to add_ functions to report an error if the add_item
  call returns False (jimi at sngx.net)

- [BUGFIX] Makefile updates for debian/ubuntu systems (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] fix infinite netboot cycle with ppc64 systems (nacc at us.ibm.com)
- [BUGFIX] Don't allow Templar classes to be created without a valid config
  There are a LOT of places in the templar.py code that use self.settings
  without checking to make sure a valid config was passed in. This could cause
  random stack dumps when templating, so it's better to force a config to be
  passed in. Thankfully, there were only two pieces of code that actually did
  this, one of which was the tftpd management module which was fixed elsewhere.
  (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] instance of Templar() was being created without a config passed in
  This caused a stack dump when the manage_in_tftpd module tried to access the
  config settings (jimi at sngx.net)

  import anything (jimi at sngx.net)

  input box to web interface for this option (jimi at sngx.net)

  - [FEATURE] Automatically detect and support bind chroot (orion at cora.nwra.com)
- [FEATURE] Add yumopts to kickstart repos (orion at cora.nwra.com)
- [BUGFIX] Fix issue with cobbler system reboot (nacc at us.ibm.com)
- [BUGFIX] fix stack trace in write_pxe_file if distro==None (smoser at brickies.net)
- [BUGFIX] Changed findkeys function to be consisten with keep_ssh_host_keys snippet
  (flaks at bnl.gov)
- [BUGFIX] Fix for issue #15 - cobbler image command does not recognize
  --image-type=memdisk (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] Issue #13 - reposync with --tries > 1 always repeats, even on
  success The success flag was being set when the reposync ran, but didn't
  break out of the retry loop - easy fix (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] Fix for issue #42 - kickstart not found error when path has leading
  space (jimi at sngx.net)
- [BUGFIX] Fix for issue #26 - Web Interface: Profile Edit

  (chorn at fluxcoil.net)
- [BUGFIX] sles patches (chorn at fluxcoil.net)
- [BUGFIX] Simple fix for issue where memtest entries were not getting created after
  installing memtest86+ and doing a cobbler sync (rharriso at redhat.com)
- [BUGFIX] REMOTE_ADDR was not being set in the arguments in calls to CobblerSvc
  instance causing ip address not to show up in install.log.
  (jweber at cofront.net)
- [BUGFIX] add missing import of shutil (aparsons at redhat.com)

- [BUGFIX] close file descriptors on backgrounded processes to avoid hanging %pre
  (aparsons at redhat.com)
- [BUGFIX] rsync copies the repositories with --delete hence deleting everyhting local
  that isn't on the source server. The createrepo then creates (following the

  run. Putting the cache directory in the rsync exclude list avoids this
  deletion and speeds up running reposync dramatically. (niels at basjes.nl)

  setup. (michael.dehaan at gmail.com)

- [BUGFIX] If the xendomain symlink already exists, a clearer error will be produced.
  (aaron.peschel at gmail.com)
- [FEATURE] Adding support for ESXi5, and fixing a few minor things (like not having a
  default kickstart for esxi4) Todos:   * The esxi*-ks.cfg files are empty, and
  need proper kickstart templates   * Import bug testing and general kickstart
  testing (jimi at sngx.net)
- [FEATURE] Adding basic support for gPXE (jimi at sngx.net)
- [FEATURE] Add arm as a valid architecture. (chuck.short at canonical.com)
- [SECURITY] Changes PYTHON_EGG_CACHE to a safer path owned just by the webserver.
  (chuck.short at canonical.com)
- [BUGFIX] koan: do not include ks_meta args when obtaining tree When obtaining the tree
  for Ubuntu machines, ensure that ks_meta args are not passed as part of the
  tree if they exist. (chuck.short at canonical.com)
- [FEATURE] koan: Use grub2 for --replace-self instead of grubby The koan option
  '--replace-self' uses grubby, which relies on grub1, to replace a local
  installation by installing the new kernel/initrd into grub menu entries.
  Ubuntu/Debian no longer uses it grub1. This patch adds the ability to use
  grub2 to add the kernel/initrd downloaded to a menuentry. On reboot, it will
  boot from the install kernel reinstalling the system. Fixes (LP: #766229)
  (chuck.short at canonical.com)

  variable for debmirror by hardcoding the environment variable  to

  templar when the setting was not specified in the /etc/cobbler/settings

  in cobbler web interface. (#8) (jimi at sngx.net)

  (jeffschroeder at computer.org)
- [SECURITY] Making https the default for the cobbler web GUI. Also modifying the cobbler-
  web RPM build to require mod_ssl and mod_wsgi (missing wsgi was an oversight,
  just correcting it now) (jimi at sngx.net)
- [FEATURE] Adding authn_pam. This also creates a new setting - authn_pam_service, which
  allows the user to configure which PAM service they want to use for cobblerd.
  The default is the 'login' service (jimi at sngx.net)
- [SECURITY] Change in cobbler.spec to modify permissions on webui sessions directory to
  prevent non-privileged user acccess to the session keys (jimi at sngx.net)
