5.176. lsvpd

Updated lsvpd packages that fix four bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The lsvpd package provides the lsvpd command to list device Vital Product Data (VPD), the lscfg command to display configuration, diagnostic, and vital product data (VPD) information, and the lsmcode command to display the microcode and firmware levels.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the vpdupdate tool tried to collect additional information about the SCSI devices. As a consequence, vpdupdate sent irrelevant messages to the syslog file. This update modifies the sysfs layout in lsvpd. Now, no more unwanted messages are sent to the syslog file.
Prior to this update, the lsvpd man page did not correctly describe the "-p" option. With this update, the man page correctly states that the "-p" option prints the designed output.
Prior to this update, the lscfg(8), lsmcode(8), lsmsr(8), lsvio(8), and vpdupdate(8) man pages missed to document several lsvpd options. This update adds all missing options to the man pages.
Prior to this update, the lsmcode tool did not contain the build requirement "librtas-devel". As a consequence, the firmware version was not displayed. This update modifies lsmcode file so that the missing build requirement is added to the spec file.
All users of lsvpd are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
