Prior to this update, the libvirt-qpid plug-in did not handle exceptions correctly. As a consequence, the fence_virtd daemon could unexpectedly terminate with a segmentation fault if the connection to the specified qpid daemon failed. This update modifies the exception handling. Now, the fencing operation works as expected.
Prior to this update, the hashing utility sha_verify did not handle errors correctly when a key file could not be read. As a consequence, the fence_virtd daemon could unexpectedly terminate with a segmentation fault when receiving a fencing request if fence_virtd failed to read the specified key file during startup. This update modifies the error handling if a key file cannot be read. Now, fence_virtd no longer terminates under these conditions.
Prior to this update, the XML example for serial mode in the fence_virt.conf(5) man page contained an incorrect closing tag. This update corrects this tag.
Prior to this update, the libvirt-qpid plug-in was linked directly against the qpid libraries instead of only the qmfv2 library. As a consequence, newer versions of the qpid libraries could not be used with the libvirt-qpid plug-in. This update no longer links against the qpid libraries directly. Now, also newer qpid libraries can be used with libvirt-qpid.
Prior to this update, the fence_virtd.conf manpage and the fence_virtd.conf generator incorrectly stated that by default, fence_virtd listened on all network interfaces. Both have been amended to state that by default, fence_virtd listens on the default network interface.
