1.135.1. RHBA-2011:0071: bug fix update

An updated scsi-target-utils package that fixes multiple bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The scsi-target-utils package contains the daemon and tools to setup and monitor targets for The Small Computer System Interface (SCSI). Currently, iSCSI software targets are supported.
This update fixes the following bugs:
* Previously, targetadmin (tgtadm) encountered a segmentation fault and the target daemon (tgtd) could not shut down when users attempted to close an open connection with ongoing input/output. With this update, tgtadm shuts down the connection or exits gracefully with an error. ( BZ#511002) * Previously, the target daemon (tgtd) failed under load. With this update, /var/log/messages contains no more errors and tgtd continues to respond. ( BZ#513241)
* Previously, the target daemon (tgtd) and target admin (tgtadm) supported iSNS, but tgt-admin and tgtd.conf did not, which made the iSNS setup difficult. This update rebases the scsi-target-utils to the tgt-1.0.8 release which incorporated iSNS support in tgtd.conf configuration file parsing. ( BZ#627053)
All users of scsi-target-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
