An updated libvirt-cim package that fixes one bug and adds two enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libvirt-cim package contains a Common Information Model (CIM) provider based on Common Manageability Programming Interface (CMPI). It supports most libvirt virtualization features and allows management of multiple libvirt-based platforms.
Prior to this update, libvirt-cim contained several defects for null variables. As a result, using null variables did not work as expected. This update resolves these defects and now null variables work as expected.
With this update, libvirt-cim supports libvirt networking Access Control Lists (ACL).
This update aprovides read-only access to ensure that the remote CIM access cannot modify the system state. This is useful when CIM is used only for monitoring and other software is used for virtualization management.
All libvirt-cim users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug and adds these enhancements.
