4.64. iprutils

Updated iprutils packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The iprutils packages provide a suite of utilities to manage and configure SCSI devices that are supported by the IBM Power RAID SCSI storage device driver.


The iprutils packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.3.11, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#795953)

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the iprutils suite did not correctly compute the size of the serial number. As a consequence, the attempt to delete arrays could fail. This update modifies the serial number comparison and increases the buffer size for new adapter configuration data.
Prior to this update, iprconfig tool failed to delete RAID arrays. This update modifies the underlying code by sending the "START_STOP_STOP" executible before deleting the device. Now, RAID arrays are deleted as expected.
All users of iprutils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
