- Previously, non-array properties of CMPI instances were not checked for NULL values in the cimserver daemon (OpenPegasus CIM server). This led to an unexpected termination of cimserver. This update provides an upstream patch for cimserver. Now, cimserver correctly returns instances with non-array properties including those containing NULL values.
- Prior to this update, all connections to cimserver were considered local host. Consequently, cimsever could not discern between local and remote connections and between granted and denied access. A patch has been provided to fix this bug. Now, cimserver is again capable of recognizing whether, firstly, connections are local or remote and, secondly, whether the access per user will be granted or denied.
- The cimserver daemon uses all of well-known ports based on CIM/WBEM technology for network communication. This update provides the user with an option to configure, which interfaces have to be used and to restrict cimserver to listen only on selected network interfaces.
