Updated rusers packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The rusers program allows users to find out who is logged into various machines on the local network. The rusers command produces output similar to output of the who utility, but for the specified list of hosts or for all machines on the local network.

Bug Fix

BZ#697862
Previously, no dependency on the rpcbind package was specified in the rstatd and rusers SysV init scripts. In addition, when the rstatd and rusersd services were started, a check to see if networking was enabled was not performed, and an incorrect exit code was returned. This update adds rpcbind dependency to the rusersd and rstatd init scripts. Also, the SysV init scripts have been adjusted to return correct exit codes. Checks are now performed when starting the rstatd and rusersd services to see whether networking is available and binding to rpcbind was successful.
All users of rusers are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
