Updated iscsi-initiator-utils packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The iscsi-initiator-utils packages provide the server daemon for the Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) protocol, as well as the utility programs used to manage it. The iSCSI protocol is a protocol for distributed disk access using SCSI commands sent over Internet Protocol (IP) networks.
- The Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) now supports safe logout. Previously, an iSCSI session was allowed to log out even when an iSCSI device was still mounted, which could cause the host to become unresponsive. This update adds the "iscsi.safe_logout" option. With "iscsi.safe_logout" set to "Yes" in the /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf file, the system blocks attempts to log out of an iSCSI session when one or more connected iSCSI drives are mounted.
Users of iscsi-initiator-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
