Fixed In Version: rhev-guest-tools-iso-3.3-6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously the RHEV-APT MSI installer was supplied with an EXE wrapper, and due to the build process only the external EXE can be signed, but not the MSI within it. Consequently, uninstalling APT produced a warning about an 'unknown publisher'. The installation process has been modified to sign the internal MSI of the APT installer, so this error no longer occurs.

Does this require doc text? If so how was it resolved?

Not sure if it requires doc text.

The installation process was modified to sign the internal MSI of the APT installer, in addition to it's external wrapper that was previously signed.
