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.
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.
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.
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".
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.
