4.59. fence-virt

Updated fence-virt packages that fix two bugs and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The fence-virt packages provide a fencing agent for virtual machines as well as a host agent which processes fencing requests.

Bug Fixes

BZ#719645
Prior to this update, the domain parameter was missing from the metadata. As a consequence, existing configurations utilizing the domain parameter did not function correctly when fencing. This update adds the domain parameter for compatibility. Now, existing configurations work as expected.
BZ#720767
Prior to this update, hash mismatches falsely returned successes for fencing. As a consequence, data corruption could occur in live-hang scenarios. This update corrects the hash handling of mismatches. Now, no more false successes are returned and the data integrity is preserved.

Enhancement

BZ#691200
With this update, the libvirt-qpid plugin now operates using QMF version 2.

Bug Fix

BZ#807270
Previously, the libvirt-qpid plug-in was linked directly against Qpid libraries instead of being linked only against QMFv2 libraries. As a consequence, newer versions of Qpid libraries could not be used with the libvirt-qpid plug-in. This update modifies the appropriate makefile so that libvirt-qpid is no longer linked directly against the Qpid libraries. The libvirt-qpid plug-in does not have to be re-linked to work with the newer Qpid libraries.
All users of fence-virt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
