  • Category set to OS/Net (Kernel and Userland)
  • Target version set to oi_148

The root cause for this bug is http://bugs.opensolaris.org/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6983942 (although the more important bug is in svccfg cleanup's error handling). I will try to address these issues for oi_148.

And this is the fix for 6983942:

#7 Updated by Albert Lee almost 5 years ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved

Fixed in oi_148. illumos will have slightly different property group name (no underscores) to match snv_151 behaviour.
