4.19. ctdb

Updated ctdb packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
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.

Bug Fix

Due to a name conflict of tools provided by the samba and tdb-tools packages, some binaries from the tdb-tools have to be renamed upon installation. The ctdb init script did not contain the updated names for the tdb-tools utilities. Consequently, the ctdb service could not be started via the init script. This update corrects the ctdb init script to search for tdb-tools utilities under their new name.
All users of ctdb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
