5.62. fcoe-target-utils

Updated fcoe-target-utils packages that fix three bugs and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The fcoe-target-utils packages provide a command line interface for configuring FCoE LUNs (Fibre Channel over Ethernet Logical Unit Numbers) and backstores.

Bug Fixes

BZ#752699
Prior to this update, starting targetadmin without the fcoe-target utility could cause the following output:
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/sys/kernel/config/target
This update modifies the underlying code so that now a warning message is displayed if targetcli is invoked without running the fcoe-target service.
BZ#813664
Prior to this update, fcoe-target-utils used the executable name "targetadmin" which did not reflect the current name in the upstream version. This update changes the name to "targetcli", to match the upstream version.
BZ#815981
Prior to this update, the configuration state was saved to "tcm_start.sh", and the fcoe-target init script restored the state from this file when the fcoe-target service was started. For increased reliability, this update uses a new method to save and restore fcoe-target configuration; it is now saved to "/etc/target/saveconfig.json".

Enhancement

BZ#750277
Prior to this update, the fcoe-target-utils packages for the Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) target mode were available only as technical preview. With this update, the fcoe-target-utils packages are fully supported in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
All users of fcoe-target-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
