Dashboard link status always OK?

I’ve configured a blue network but haven’t yet plugged anything into it. When I go to Config/Network and edit the blue lan, it shows that the link status is “down,” which is correct. But on the dashboard under interfaces, the blue network link status shows as OK. Perhaps this has a different meaning, but it would be helpful if the dashboard reflected at a glance whether a particular network was up or down. Or maybe I have something misconfigured? Thanks.

I just checked on of my systems and I can observe a similar behaviour. I think it’s related to the hardware model of the boards.
In my case I have two unused ethernet boards and the dashboard shows different data for them:
eth1: two lines, MAC and link:-
eth3: four lines, MAC, link OK (100 Mb/s), IP -/- and type -

I’ll ask @giacomo to check the code. :smile:

I didn’t check the code, but I bet it’s a bug.
We have plans to rewrite the dashboard using the same code from the network module.

I will keep u posted :smile:

Thanks for looking into this.

The fix is now on QA: http://dev.nethserver.org/issues/3096

@AZChas QA is coming up do you want to lend a hand?

I’d love to. Count me in.

  • prepare a NethServer fresh install
  • verify bug presence
  • update with
    Yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing update nethserver-base
  • follow test case described into the bug
  • if success mark as Verify otherwise mark as failed and explain why, for example pasting error messages

I did a fresh install and verified that the bug was present. Downloaded and installed the patch, rebooted, and the dashboard status indicators now function correctly.
