|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0014712: GeoIP 1.x free databases are no longer updated|
|Description||As of April 1, 2018, the legacy GeoLite (free) databases are no longer being updated by MaxMind:|
The current symptom of this deprecation is the following error message when attempting to run "geoipupdate":
"Received Error -21 (Sanity check database_info string failed) when attempting to update GeoIP Database"
The secondary symptom will be increasing inaccuracy until January 2019, at which point the legacy (1.x) free databases will be taken offline entirely. Version 2 free databases are still available and supported (as are paid 1.x databases, for now). GeoIP2 was released in October of 2013.
CentOS is still shipping version 1.5 of the GeoIP library. I assume RHEL is shipping the same version, but I'm not running RHEL. How do we go about requesting 2.x upstream? IUS doesn't appear to have a package for GeoIP2 either.
|Steps To Reproduce||yum install GeoIP|

|Search bugzilla.redhat.com and see if it's already been reported and if not, raise a new ticket there. If and when Redhat do something about it for RHEL then CentOS will inherit the fix.|
Hello @TrevorH, redhat has already patched the fix.
|From what I read, for Fedora 27, not RHEL|
There is a "Clone this bug" link near the top. Using that, you can file the same bug for RHEL.
I already created a bug in RHEL. Thank you.
