1.17.1. RHBA-2011:0055: bug fix update
CTDB is a clustered database based on Samba's Trivial Database (TDB). The ctdb package is a cluster implementation used to store temporary data. If an application is already using TBD for temporary data storage, it can be very easily converted to be cluster-aware and use CTDB.
Please note that it is not possible to do a rolling update of a cluster (i.e. update one server while the others are online) from the previous version ctdb-1.0.82 to the current ctdb-1.0.112. All nodes of a cluster must be shut down before the update. After all nodes are updated, the cluster can be started again.
All users of ctdb are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
