Bug Fix Advisory dmraid bug-fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2009:1347-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2009-09-02
Last updated on: 2009-09-02
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated dmraid packages that fix several bugs and add enhancements
are now available.

The dmraid packages contain the ATARAID/DDF1 activation tool that supports
RAID device discovery, RAID set activation, and displays properties for
ATARAID/DDF1 formatted RAID sets on Linux kernels using device-mapper.

This update applies the following bug fixes:

* The dmraid logwatch-based email reporting feature has been moved from the dmraid-events package
into the new dmraid-events-logwatch package. Consequently, systems that use this dmraid feature need
to complete the following manual procedure:
1. Ensure the new 'dmraid-events-logwatch' package is installed.
2. Un-comment the functional portion of the "/etc/cron.d/dmeventd-logwatch" crontab file.

* The sgpio and dmevent_tool applications get installed with the dmraid
package now.

* The drive order for isw RAID01 sets is now identical with the OROM order.

* Various issues with wrong LED rebuild and metadata states have been fixed.

This update adds the following enhancements:

* Device Failure Monitoring, using the tools dmraid and dmevent_tool, is
now included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 as a Technology Preview.
Device Failure Monitoring provides the ability to watch and report device
failures on component devices of RAID sets.

* dmraid now automatically activates device event monitoring for the isw
metadata format (Intel IMSM). The dmevent_tool is still available to allow
for manual (de)registration.

* dmraid now supports an "--rm_partitions" option to allow for removing
partition devices for RAID set component devices.

* Activation of isw RAID sets on disks with long serial numbers is now
supported.

All dmraid users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues and add these enhancements.
