Description Daniel Orrego univentionstaff 2014-12-12 12:20:01 CET
I find it useful to be able to use the install wizard to add extra routes (like the UCRVs: interfaces/eth0/route/* and interfaces/eth0/options/*) at install time.

Well, not exactly. As in Bug #32557 the data are stored in LDAP, here the values are stored in UCR.

What interfaces/eth0/options/* are threre for eth devices? (afaik none).
You are already able to configure interfaces/*/options/* via the network-settings module.

The installation wizard is on purpose not able to do this because it does not want to overstrain users with complexity she might not understand. Maybe it would be good for the network-settings module.

I meant the installation wizard. Advanced network configurations might be needed at that point (right now I am adding extra routes running a script right after the cloud instance is launched and before using the wizard; this is just a "nice-to-have" bug). A different case is once the system is installed. There, as long as I am able to do it without "hacks" (whether in 'Network settings' on via UCRVs) everything is fine for me.

About enabling options, as an opensource user I care about respect. So, it's not nice ;-) if the interface doesn't allow me at all to add settings that I need and know how to set, because someone decided that I "might not understand". it's not hard to find ways of "not overstrain users with complexity", like having some 'advance settings' option or something similar.

This issue has been filed against UCS 3. UCS 3 is out of the normal maintenance and many UCS components have vastly changed in UCS 4.

If this issue is still valid, please change the version to a newer UCS version otherwise this issue will be automatically closed in the next weeks.

This issue has been filed against UCS 3.2.

UCS 3.2 is out of maintenance and many UCS components have vastly changed in later releases. Thus, this issue is now being closed.

If this issue still occurs in newer UCS versions, please use "Clone this bug" or reopen this issue. In this case please provide detailed information on how this issue is affecting you.
