Bug Fix Advisory initscripts bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1275-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-09-17
Last updated on: 2012-09-17
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 6.3.z)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated initscripts packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The initscripts package contains basic system scripts to boot the system, change
runlevels, activate and deactivate most network interfaces, and shut the system
down cleanly.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the naming policy for VLAN names was too strict. Consequently, the
if-down utility did not properly remove descriptively-named interfaces from the
/proc/net/vlan/config file. This update removes the name format check and
if-down now works as expected in the described scenario. (BZ#854852)

All users of initscripts are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
