8.43. fence-virt

Updated fence-virt packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The fence-virt packages provide a fencing agent for virtual machines as well as a host agent, which processes fencing requests.

Bug Fixes

The respective gzip files for the fence_virt(8) and fence_xvm(8) manual pages were previously created with executable permissions for everybody, which is incorrect. This has been fixed and these files are now properly created with 644 permissions.
A bug in the fence_virt fencing agent could cause the agent to fail listing the virtual machines that could have been fenced by the fence_virtd daemon using the serial channel within a virtual interface. This happened when the virtual machine had been started or live-migrated after starting the fence_virtd daemon on the cluster node. The bug has been fixed and fence_virt now lists virtual machines as expected in this scenario.
Users of fence-virt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs. Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.
