Updated opensm packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Extended Update Support.
OpenSM is the OpenIB project's Subnet Manager for InfiniBand networks. These packages provide the opensm daemon, as well as various tools for diagnosing and testing InfiniBand networks.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Previously, an attempt to connect to a target machine using the SCSI RDMA Protocol (SRP) could cause SCSI requests to fail with a timeout. When this happened, this error rendered mapping of SCSI over InfiniBand unusable. This update applies an upstream patch that resolves this issue, and the mapping of SCSI over InfiniBand now works as expected. (BZ#650925
All users of opensm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
