7.255. tog-pegasus

Updated tog-pegasus packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
OpenPegasus Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) Services for Linux enables management solutions that deliver increased control of enterprise resources. WBEM is a platform and resource independent of Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) standard that defines a common information model and communication protocol for monitoring and controlling resources from diverse sources.

Note

The tog-pegasus package has been upgraded to upstream version 2.12.0, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#739118, BZ#825471)

Bug Fixes

BZ#812892
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.
BZ#869664
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.

Enhancement

BZ#716474
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.
Users of tog-pegasus are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
