Description David Milburn 2005-07-20 18:54:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2

Description of problem:
Command "qetharp -q <interface>" does not return a list of IP/MAC addresses.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL-4
2. Define a non-layer2 vswitch or qdio type guestlan
3. Couple a virtual nic to the non-layer2 lan and configure an interface on it
4. Attempt "qetharp -q <interface>"

Actual Results:  CP Q NIC 600
Adapter 0600  Type: QDIO      Name: UNASSIGNED  Devices: 3
 Port 0 MAC: 02-00-00-00-00-0C  VSWITCH: SYSTEM DT70

Unsuccessful: Operation not supported

Expected Results:  That the qetharp would give back a listing with IP and MAC for my virtual nic.

Additional info:

The RHEL4 U1 kernel does not contain the qeth-qetharp fix published within
