OLVM: Do not overwrite the ovirt-vmconsole-proxy/sshd-config while updating the ovirt-vmconsole packages (Doc ID 2798319.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 15, 2021

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.9 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [5.4.17] and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

 Any changes made in sshd_config/ovirt-vmconsole files gets overwritten:

For example:

Before updating we can find the Ciphers line on the configuration file:

[root@<hostname>]# grep Ciphers /usr/share/ovirt-vmconsole/ovirt-vmconsole-host/ovirt-vmconsole-host-sshd/sshd_config
Ciphers aes256-ctr,aes192-ctr,aes128-ctr

But after updating the package the line was removed:

[root@<hostname>]# yum -y install /tmp/ovirt-vmconsole-*
.....
Updated:
ovirt-vmconsole.noarch
Complete!
[root@<hostname>]# grep Ciphers /usr/share/ovirt-vmconsole/ovirt-vmconsole-host/ovirt-vmconsole-host-sshd/sshd_config
