5.63. fcoe-utils

Updated fcoe-utils packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The fcoe-utils package allows users to use Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). The package contains the fcoeadm command-line tool for configuring FCoE interfaces, and the fcoemon service to configure DCB (Data Center Bridging) Ethernet QoS filters.
The fcoe-utils package has been upgraded to upstream version 1.0.22, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version, including bash-completion enhancements and changing of the default FCoE interface names from 'device.vlan-fcoe' to 'device.vlan'. The -f (--fipvlan) option can be used to apply the previous behavior. (BZ#788511)

Bug Fix

The "service fcoe status" command returned an incorrect return value when the fcoe service was running. With this update, the underlying code has been modified and fcoe now returns the correct code under these circumstances.
All users of fcoe-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
