An updated iprutils package that fixes several bugs and adds various
enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The iprutils package provides utilities to manage and configure SCSI devices
that are supported by the IBM Power RAID SCSI storage device driver.

provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version and
adds support for the suspend/resume utility for IBM BlueHawk. (BZ#822648,

- Previously, showing disk details caused the iprconfig utility, which is used
to configure Hardware RAID devices, to terminate unexpectedly. Now, disk details

- Previously, in some situations, iprconfig failed to change the IOA asymmetric
access mode if the saved mode in the configuration file located in the
"/etc/ipr/" directory was different than the current mode. With this update,
iprconfig sets the mode correctly and a warning message is returned when this
inconsistency is detected. (BZ#830982)
- Previously, iprutils showed the wrong disk platform location within the system
location string when the "iprconfig -c show-details sgx" command was used. Now,
the platform location for the hard disk is combined with the location of
"secured easy setup" (SES) and the physical location slot number which prevents
this error from occurring. (BZ#869751)

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
