action #65088

Updated by riafarov over 1 year ago

We want to test that config writings from YaST produces certain conflicts.

The implementation as now, contains a couple of yast modules that uses the 70-yast.conf. Some of them that we can use for automation during the installation is
- net.ipv4.ip_forward
- net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies

These settings are available in the yast2 network module.

Scope is limited to 64bit on SLES only for the start.

Potential
Possible Scenario:
1. Check that module writes modify settings properly in /etc/sysctl.d/70-yast.conf and not in /etc/sysctl.conf (using yast2 lan module with settings mentioned above) 'manual'
2. Set conflicting Edit network settings in /etc/sysctl.conf, edit them in yast module verify that yast module reports it from step 1 on YaST
3. Verify conflict is happening

3. Set conflicting setting in custom file, e.g. /etc/sysctl.d/90-custom.conf , edit them in yast module verify that yast module reports it check /etc/sysctl.d/70-yast.conf for variables and values
