Description

Motivation

"dns_srv" is failing on bsc#1064438 where the bug assignee is very responsive but it is not clear if the test case even is valid. As many s390x tests fail on dns_srv and can not progress further and we have less failures on other test modules for SLE15 now we should make sure tests do not fail on "dns_srv" anymore.

Acceptance criteria

  • AC: The module dns_srv uses dig instead of hostname.

Tasks

  1. Implement suggestions mentioned in bsc#1064438

Suggestions from: https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1064438#c28

We could improve this test by:
1: Use dig instead of host (host is deprecated anyway)
2: Supply the IP (v6 _and_ v4) explicitly while resolving the request (this avoids the first resolving over /etc/hosts)
3: Run "dig localhost @localhost" in a third step to also test this weird, chained resolving

ok, the idea makes sense but I do not think we have that capacity right now. Let's try in S18

  • Target version changed from Milestone 16 to future

Honestly I think we have better things to do at current times and I do not see a reason to replace working tool as long as the command itself does not report as deprecated or is not available to us anymore.

Bulk action to set status back to "New" for older tickets which are in "future". They would need to be revisited in time when we come up with a defined plan and assign to a milestone.
