Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Red Hat Enterprise Linux è una distribuzione Linux per ambienti di produzione, basata su soluzioni con software open source, che fornisce un ampio supporto ai clienti. La controparte free sponsorizzata da Red Hat è data dal progetto Fedora, dove vengono sperimentate nuove soluzioni che poi potranno venir adottate in RHEL.

Versione 8.0

Questa versione contiene (in Inglese):

A firewall interface has been added to the web console

The Networking page in the RHEL 8 web console now includes a Firewall section. In this section, users can enable or disable the firewall, as well as add, remove, and modify firewall rules.

(BZ#1647110)

The web console is now available by default

Packages for the RHEL 8 web console, also known as Cockpit, are now part of Red Hat Enterprise Linux default repositories, and can therefore be immediately installed on a registered RHEL 8 system.

In addition, on a non-minimal installation of RHEL 8, the web console is automatically installed and firewall ports required by the console are automatically open. A system message has also been added prior to login that provides information about how to enable or access the web console.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-10355)

Better IdM integration for the web console

If your system is enrolled in an Identity Management (IdM) domain, the RHEL 8 web console now uses the domain’s centrally managed IdM resources by default. This includes the following benefits:

  • The IdM domain’s administrators can use the web console to manage the local machine.
  • The console’s web server automatically switches to a certificate issued by the IdM certificate authority (CA) and accepted by browsers.
  • Users with a Kerberos ticket in the IdM domain do not need to provide login credentials to access the web console.
  • SSH hosts known to the IdM domain are accessible to the web console without manually adding an SSH connection.

Note that for IdM integration with the web console to work properly, the user first needs to run the ipa-advise utility with the enable-admins-sudo option in the IdM master system.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-3010)

The web console is now compatible with mobile browsers

With this update, the web console menus and pages can be navigated on mobile browser variants. This makes it possible to manage systems using the RHEL 8 web console from a mobile device.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-10352)

The web console front page now displays missing updates and subscriptions

If a system managed by the RHEL 8 web console has outdated packages or a lapsed subscription, a warning is now displayed on the web console front page of the system.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-10353)

The web console now supports PBD enrollment

With this update, you can use the the RHEL 8 web console interface to apply Policy-Based Decryption (PBD) rules to disks on managed systems. This uses the Clevis decryption client to facilitate a variety of security management functions in the web console, such as automatic unlocking of LUKS-encrypted disk partitions.

(JIRA:RHELPLAN-10354)

Virtual Machines can now be managed using the web console

The Virtual Machines page can now be added to the RHEL 8 web console interface, which enables the user to create and manage libvirt-based virtual machines.
