Description Paul Kennedy 2005-06-11 00:44:05 UTC
Description of problem:

When trying to restore the configuration file from a backup configuration file,
the propagation is not successful. Received Error dialog box that indicated
failure to propagate because "Proposed updated config file does not have greater
version number."


Unkown. Tried clicking "Send to Cluster" two more times. On second try the
propagation was successful; presumably though, that was because the
configuration file got saved automatically by the action of clicking "Send to

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-cluster 1.0.12 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Added service "alpha".
2.  Clicked "Send to Cluster" and acknowledged resultant dialog box with "Yes".
3.  Added service "beta".
4.  Clicked "Send to Cluster" and acknowledged resultant dialog box with "Yes".
5.  Added service "charlie".
6.  Clicked "Send to Cluster" and acknowledged resultant dialog box with "Yes".
7.  At the Cluster Configuration tab, did File => Open =>
8.  At the Cluster Configuration tab, did File => Save As => /etc/cluster.conf
9.  Clicked "Send to Cluster" and acknowledged resultant dialog box with "Yes".
10. Acknowledging dialog box with "Yes" caused an Error dialog box to be
    displayed with the following message:
Propagation of configuration file failed with the following error:
 Proposed updated config file does not have greater version number.
  Current config_version :: 269
  Proposed config_version:: 268

Failed to update config file.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Paul Kennedy 2005-06-15 17:41:47 UTC
The procedure for restoring to a backup configuration file should include a step
to increment the configuration file revision level to a number beyond the
current revision level. Documentation has been changed to reflect that. 

Changed severity to "enhancement", however. Recommend that restoring a file from
a backup file automatically update the revision level.

Comment 2 Paul Kennedy 2006-02-01 23:11:50 UTC
Please reassign this bug to me if the change is made so I can adjust the
documentation to exclude step 4 for changing the rev level:

Comment 4 Kiersten (Kerri) Anderson 2007-01-04 17:18:12 UTC
Due to time constraints and impact on documentation, moving this to 4.6 release.

Comment 5 Jim Parsons 2007-09-25 14:43:06 UTC
This is fixed for 4.6. Added an increment call to revision number. easier than I
thought. No need to alter documentation.
