- The iSCSI user-space driver, iscsiuio, has been upgraded to upstream version 0.7.6.1, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. In particular, VLAN and routing support.
- The "iscsiadm --version" command was missing the main version number, the leading "6.". This update corrects the version number value and "iscsiadm --version" now shows the main version number correctly.
- For some bnx2i cards, the network interface must be active for the iSCSI interface to report a valid MAC address. This sometimes lead to a failure to connect to an iSCSI target and consequently, iSCSI root setups failing to boot. This update changes iscsistart to put the network interface associated with the iSCSI context into an active state. As a result, iSCSI boot with bnx2i cards now works correctly.
- Due to a regression in the iscsiuio 0.7.4.3 update, iSCSI discovery and login failed on certain hardware. This has been corrected as part of the iscsiuio 0.7.6.1 update. As a result, iSCSI is functional again.
