Bug Fix Advisory smartmontools bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1784-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

An updated smartmontools package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The smartmontools package contains two utilities, smartctl and smartd, that
enable the controlling and monitoring of Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting
Technology System (S.M.A.R.T.) enabled storage systems. These utilities provide
advanced warning of disk degradation and failure.

This updated smartmontools package fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the format in which certain HP SAS (Serial Attached
SCSI) drives returned S.M.A.R.T. data was not recognized by smartmontools and
the following error message "scsi response fails sanity test" was logged. With
this update, smartmontools now correctly recognizes the data and this error no
longer occurs. (BZ#714888)

All users of smartmontools are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.
