Advisory: RHBA-2011:0537-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-05-19
Last updated on: 2011-05-19
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux High Availability (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Resilient Storage (v. 6)

Details

Updated cluster and gfs2-utils packages that fix various defects are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The cluster packages contain the core clustering libraries for Red Hat High
Availability as well as utilities to maintain GFS2 file systems for users of Red
Hat Resilient Storage.

This update provides fixes for the following defects:

* CMAN init script race condition has been fixed (BZ#595725)
* plock owner synchronization has been fixed (BZ#617306)
* plocks are now ignored until they written to their checkpoint (BZ#623810)
* plock signatures are now re-sent after a new totem ring forms (BZ#623816)
* post_join_delay now works after a loss and subsequent regain of quorum
(BZ#624844)
* "service cman stop remove" now functions correctly (BZ#634718)
* Active cluster nodes with higher configuration version numbers are no longer
killed when they join the cluster (BZ#639018)
* The ccs_tool man page no longer shows 'update' and 'upgrade' subcommands
(BZ#577874)
* ccs_tool cluster configuration editing has been dropped (BZ#614885)
* The interaction between corosync and cman restarting independently of one
another has been improved (BZ#617234)
* reporting of corosync's exit code has been improved (BZ#617247)
* cman_tool manual page no longer talks about "config version" as an argument to
-r (BZ#619874)
* Qdiskd now stops voting & exits if removed from the configuration (BZ#620679)
* gfs_controld: fix plock owner in unmount (BZ#624822)
* Qdiskd now reports to users when the quorumd "label" attribute overrides the
"device" attribute (BZ#635413)
* Qdiskd now has a hard limit on heuristic timeouts (BZ#636243)
* Pacemaker-specific versions of dlm_controld and gfs_controld have been removed
since they are no longer required (BZ#649021)
* cman now allows users to select udpu (UDP unicast) corosync transport
mechanism (BZ#657041)
* Qdiskd now assumes votes for each cluster node are 1 when not specified in
cluster.conf (BZ#663433)
* The cman init script can no longer include an incorrect sysconf file
(BZ#669340)
* DLM recovery no longer hangs after fencing completion in some instances
(BZ#678704)
* The cluster.rng schema has been updated (BZ#645830, BZ#618705, BZ#684020,
BZ#629017, BZ#680172)
* A memory leak in the XML parser has been fixed (BZ#680155)
* Heuristic checks are unreliable (BZ#688154)
* cman quorum timeout is too short (BZ#688201)

The following issues have been addressed in the gfs2-utils package:

* fsck.gfs2 was truncating directories with more than 100,000 entries
(BZ#628013)
* fsck.gfs2 was processing some files twice (BZ#621313)
* fsck.gfs2 no longer crashes if journals are missing (BZ#622576)
* When mounting a gfs2 file system, the same device requested on the command
line now appears in /proc/mounts and /etc/mtab (BZ#632595)
* gfs2_convert now resumes after an interrupted conversion (BZ#637913)
* fsck.gfs2 can now repair rgrps resulting from gfs_grow->gfs2_convert
(BZ#576640)
* mkfs.gfs2 no longer segfaults with 18.55TB and -b512 (BZ#624535)
* mkfs.gfs2 now supports discard request generation (BZ#656956)
* fsck.gfs2: reports master/root inodes as unused and fixes the bitmap
(BZ#663037)
* gfs2_convert no longer corrupts the file system if the di_height is too large.
(BZ#630005)
* gfs2_convert no longer exits success without doing anything (BZ#688734)

In addition, this update provides the following enhancements:

* gfs2_edit now outputs hexadecimal values in lower-case (BZ#634623)
* gfs2_edit now prints continuation blocks (BZ#634623)
* gfs2_edit's savemeta and restoremeta functions now report progress (BZ#634623)
* gfs2_edit has improved handling of corrupt file systems and enhanced usability
(BZ#674843)
* It is now possible to prevent the cluster software from starting at boot using
the kernel command line (BZ#563901)
* The cluster now has a script which can be used with the watchdog daemon to
reboot the host (BZ#560700)
* Fenced now sends notifications over DBus (BZ#592964)

All users of Red Hat High Availability and Red Hat Resilient Storage are advised
to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
