Updated cluster and gfs2-utils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Red Hat Cluster Manager is a collection of technologies working together to provide data integrity and the ability to maintain application availability in the event of a failure. Using redundant hardware, shared disk storage, power management, and robust cluster communication and application failover mechanisms, a cluster can meet the needs of the enterprise market.

Bug Fix

BZ#878373
Previously, the fenced daemon was creating its log file with insecure permissions. Even though no sensitive data, such as passwords, usernames, or IP addresses were ever stored in the file, with this update, log files are created with correct permissions. Permissions of an existing log file is also automatically corrected if necessary.
All users of cluster and gfs2-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.

Bug Fix

BZ#849049
Previously, it was not possible to specify start-up options to the dlm_controld daemon. As a consequence, certain features were not working as expected. With this update, it is possible to use the /etc/sysconfig/cman configuration file to specify dlm_controld start-up options, thus fixing this bug.

Bug Fix

BZ#982699
Previously, the cman init script did not handle its lock file correctly. During a node reboot, this could have caused the node itself to be evicted from the cluster by other members. With this update, the cman init script now handles the lock file correctly, and no fencing action is taken by other nodes of the cluster.
