After changing an alias, the filter reloads twice, which can lead to a race condition "device busy" like the attached.

Jan 10 17:55:04    check_reload_status: syncing firewall
Jan 10 17:55:04    check_reload_status: reloading filter
Jan 10 17:55:06    check_reload_status: reloading filter

Seems a large alias, such as a URL one for all US CIDR blocks, can replicate the problem (see attached) more readily than typical rulesets.

Ticket #1183. Skip call to filter_configure() here, this will be done when user will click on 'apply changes' button in firewall_aliases.php


#1 Updated by Pierre POMES over 8 years ago

The first cal to filter_configure() occurs when saving the changes in firewall_aliases_edit.php­.
The second one occurs when the user cliks on "apply changes" in firewall_aliases.php.

Hum... does it mean the changes are already applied before clicking on the "apply changes" button ?

Keep the same logic as for firewall rules, and remove call to filter_configure when user saves the changes in firewall_aliases_edit.php (reloading will be done when user will click on "apply changes")

This is now working correctly. Tested with NanoBSD built on Thu Jan 13 20:30:46 EST 2011.
