- Encryption of the configuration file is now allowed, so authentication credentials for hardware management are no longer available in clear text on the system.Support for IPv6 has been fixed in the Onboard Administrator (OA) SOAP plug-in.The uid_map file is no longer created as world-writable.
- Prior to this update, a data race condition was present in the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) plug-in within the multi-threaded daemon. Consequently, the openhpid daemon could terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. This bug has been fixed, the data structures are now updated in the correct order, and openhpid no longer crashes in this scenario.
- Network timeouts were handled incorrectly in the openhpid daemon. As a consequence, network connections could fail when external plug-ins were used. With this update, handling of network socket timeouts has been improved in openhpid, and the described problem no longer occurs.
