iprutils bug fix and enhancement update
Bug Fix Advisory
Updated iprutils packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The iprutils packages provide a suite of utilities to manage and configure SCSI
devices that are supported by the IBM Power RAID SCSI storage device driver.
The iprutils packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.3.11, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
This update also fixes the following bugs:
- Prior to this update, the iprutils suite did not correctly compute the size of
the serial number. As a consequence, the attempt to delete arrays could fail.
This update modifies the serial number comparison and increases the buffer size
for new adapter configuration data. (BZ#750702)
- Prior to this update, iprconfig tool failed to delete RAID arrays. This update
modifies the underlying code by sending the "START_STOP_STOP" executible before
deleting the device. Now, RAID arrays are deleted as expected. (BZ#843639)
All users of iprutils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
to your system have been applied.
This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
