4.294. sg3_utils

Updated sg3_utils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The sg3_utils packages contain a collection of tools for SCSI devices that use the Linux SCSI generic (sg) interface. It includes utilities for database copying based on "dd" syntax and semantics (the "sg_dd", "sgp_dd" and "sgm_dd" commands), INQUIRY data checking and associated pages ("sg_inq"), mode and log page checking ("sg_modes" and "sg_logs"), disk spinning ("sg_start") and self-tests ("sg_senddiag"), as well as other utilities. It also contains the script.

Bug Fix

When scanning for iSCSI devices, if no device existed with a Logical Unit Number (LUN) of "0", then the shell script failed to detect any other devices as well. With this update, the script detects all iSCSI devices even if there is no device with LUN of "0".
All users of sg3_utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
