7.91. iprutils

An updated iprutils package that fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The iprutils package provides utilities to manage and configure SCSI devices that are supported by the IBM Power RAID SCSI storage device driver.


The iprutils package has been upgraded to upstream version 2.3.12, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version and adds support for the suspend/resume utility for IBM BlueHawk. (BZ#822648, BZ#860532, BZ#829761)

Bug Fixes

Previously, showing disk details caused the iprconfig utility, which is used to configure Hardware RAID devices, to terminate unexpectedly. Now, disk details are shown properly and iprconfig no longer crashes.
Previously, in some situations, iprconfig failed to change the IOA asymmetric access mode if the saved mode in the configuration file located in the "/etc/ipr/" directory was different than the current mode. With this update, iprconfig sets the mode correctly and a warning message is returned when this inconsistency is detected.
Previously, iprutils showed the wrong disk platform location within the system location string when the "iprconfig -c show-details sgx" command was used. Now, the platform location for the hard disk is combined with the location of "secured easy setup" (SES) and the physical location slot number which prevents this error from occurring.
Users of iprutils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
