Bug Fix Advisory

Identify and remediate systems affected by this advisory.
Updated rhevm-log-collector packages that fix several bugs are now available.
The rhevm-log-collector utility allows users to easily collect log files from
all systems in their Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment.
The rhevm-log-collector packages have been upgraded to upstream version 3.5.3,
which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version.
Changes to the ovirt-engine-log-collector component:
- Previously, the Log Collector tool created its archive in the base folder,
which meant that it also archived the permissions of the current working
directory ('.'). Consequently, extracting the Log Collector archive changed the
permissions of the directory in which the archive was extracted, resulting in
unintended side effects on the system. Now, the structure has been changed to
introduce a top level directory, and users can extract the archive without
altering the directory permissions. Because extracting the archive now creates a
directory with all files under it, users can, for example, extract two different
Log Collector archives in the same directory, without those archives
- A new SOS plug-in in SOS 3.2 allows the Log Collector tool to collect
information about self-hosted engine environments, including information about
the hosted-engine setup and HA daemons. (BZ#1208113)
- In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7, the SOS package was upgraded to 3.2.
Consequently, the SOS 2 plug-ins used by Log Collector tool until Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.6.z conflicted with the SOS plug-ins included in SOS 3.2. To
avoid this, the Log Collector was split, and the conflicting SOS plug-ins were
moved to an optional sub-package; the sub-package can be installed if SOS 2 is
required, or removed if SOS 3.2 is required. Now, the Log Collector can be used
with SOS 2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 systems, and SOS 3.2 on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.7 systems. (BZ#1210644)
- The rhevm-log-collector package was upgraded to 3.5.3. (BZ#1218298)
Users of rhevm-log-collector 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.
