4.287. scsi-target-utils

An updated scsi-target-utils package that fixes two bugs and adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The scsi-target-utils package contains the daemon and tools used to set up iSCSI and The iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) targets.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, scsi-target-utils could under certain circumstances terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault when the tgt daemon was stopped. This update modifies the source code so that scsi-target-utils no longer terminates with a segmentation fault when tgtd is stopped.
Prior to this update, the SCSI target configuration tool (tgt-admin) allowed only an insufficiently small number of targets to be updated. As a result, running tgt-admin with the option update ALL failed with an error message that the target already existed. With this update, tgt-admin has been modified so that it now successfully processes large numbers of targets.


This update increases the allowable lengths of scsi_sn and scsi_id to 36 characters to allow the use of globally unique identifiers (GUID) for these properties.
All users of scsi-target-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs and adds this enhancement.
