Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2019:2494-1
Rating: important
References: #1141969 #1144363 #1144881
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Public Cloud 15-SP1
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Open Buildservice Development Tools 15-SP1

An update that has three recommended fixes can now be installed.

Description:

This update for cloud-init provides the following fixes:

  • Properly handle static routes. The EphemeralDHCP context manager did not parse or handle rfc3442 classless static routes which prevented reading datasource metadata in some clouds. (bsc#1141969)
  • The __str__ implementation no longer delivers the name of the interface, use the "name" attribute instead to form a proper path in the sysfs tree. (bsc#1144363)
  • If no routes are set for a subnet but the subnet has a gateway specified, set the gateway as the default route for the interface. (bsc#1144881)
