Bug Fix Advisory
Updated rgmanager packages that fix numerous bugs and add several
enhancements are now available.
The rgmanager packages contain the Red Hat Resource Group Manager, which
provides the ability to create and manage high-availability server
applications in the event of system downtime.
This update addresses the following bugs:
- failed virtual machine migrations are handled more correctly. (BZ#499835)
- clustered file systems are no longer unmounted after a configuration
- clustat's output is now consistent when given bad input. (BZ#506346)
- the force_unmount flag now works correctly when used with HA-LVM.
- path support for Xen virtual machines works again. (BZ#519786)
- S/Lang processor no longer leaks memory. (BZ#507431)
- rgmanager exits if killed while waiting for fencing. (BZ#508147)
- bonded link handling when using Xen bridged interfaces works. (BZ#518037)
- services no longer get stuck in the 'recovering' state. (BZ#530409)
- node rejoins prior to fencing completion are now handled correctly.
- live migration of frozen VMs is an invalid operation. (BZ#510017)
- tomcast-5.sh now uses su instead of sudo. (BZ#524757)
- multiple event handlers no longer cause problems with central_processing.
- ip.sh honors monitor_link during service start. (BZ#532756)
- ip.sh now attempts to detect IP address collisions. (BZ#526647)
- ip.sh now handles ipv6 addresses with shortened quads correctly.
- SAPInstance and SAPDatabase may now be referenced from the
- fs.sh no longer warns about bind mounts. (BZ#526286)
- migrating a virtual machine to an offline node returns an error.
- aggressive timeouts causing services to sometimes erroneously enter the
'failed' state have been changed to scale with the cluster's timeout.
- clusvcadm now checks the return code msg_send. (BZ#529929)
- 'Depend' attributes when using central processing are handled correctly.
- a bug in HA-LVM which could cause metadata corruption in some cases has
been fixed. (BZ#557167)
This update also includes the following enhancements:
- more debugging information has been added to /tmp/rgmanager-dump..
- path support emulation has been added for KVM virtual machines.
- vm.sh now provides more meaningful error reports. (BZ#529926)
- file system resources now report errors when status checks fail.
Red Hat Resource Group Manager users are advised to upgrade to these
updated packages, which address these issues.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
