Problem description

As part of ZLM 66 HP3 release we have fixed some bugs for rcd/rug/red-carpet.
  • 214438 - OES - rcd should refresh the channel data automatically when issuing rug pl or rug pin --entire-channel commands. If the cache is older then "rug pl" command will show the warning and ask the user to do "rug refresh".
  • 234385 - Traceback changing maximum ammount of memory in red-carpet. rcd was throwing the exception, but red-carpet was not catching it. Now modified red-carpet handle to exception in a proper way.
  • 234388 - Traceback changing maximum number of seconds rcd was throwing the exception, but red-carpet was not catching it. Now modified red-carpet handle to exception in a proper way.
  • 246043 - No way to automate the installation of patches. Added one more option "agree-to-third-party-licences" to "rug pin" command which will display the license agreement, but will not ask the user to agree to it. In stead it will print the message that "you have agreed to the license agreement" and proceed for transaction.
  • 248071 - Conection to another rcd daemon (system) needs to restart red-carpet to apply The function which establishes connection to remote rcd daemon was being called incorrectly. Modified the function arguments to fix the bug.
