Updated tog-pegasus packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The tog-pegasus packages provide OpenPegasus Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) services for Linux. WBEM enables management solutions that deliver increased control of enterprise resources. WBEM is a platform and resource independent Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) standard that defines a common information model (CIM) and communication protocol for monitoring and controlling resources from diverse sources.
Previously, with the Single Chunk Memory Objects (SCMO) implementation, empty string values in embedded instances were converted to null values during the embedded CIMInstance to SCMOInstance conversion. This was due to the usage of the _setString() function that set the string size to 0 if the string was empty. This broke functionality of the existing providers. A backported upstream patch uses the _SetBinary() function instead which is already used while setting the string values on the normal SCMOInstance.
Previously, the tog-pegasus packages did not provide a generic "cim-server", which could be required by packages that do not need a specific implementation of the CIM server as a dependency. With this update, the tog-pegasus packages provide a generic "cim-server" that can be required by such packages.
All users of tog-pegasus are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
