Bug Fix Advisory iscsi-initiator-utils bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0438-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-02-20
Last updated on: 2013-02-20

Details

Updated iscsi-initiator-utils packages that fix multiple bugs and add various
enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The iscsi-initiator-utils packages provide the server daemon for the Internet
Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) protocol, as well as the utility
programs used to manage it. iSCSI is a protocol for distributed disk access
using SCSI commands sent over Internet Protocol (IP) networks.

* The iSCSI user-space driver, iscsiuio, has been upgraded to upstream version
0.7.6.1, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous
version. In particular, VLAN and routing support. (BZ#826300)

This update fixes the following bugs:

* The "iscsiadm --version" command was missing the main version number, the
leading "6.". This update corrects the version number value and "iscsiadm
--version" now shows the main version number correctly. (BZ#811428)

* For some bnx2i cards, the network interface must be active for the iSCSI
interface to report a valid MAC address. This sometimes lead to a failure to
connect to an iSCSI target and consequently, iSCSI root setups failing to boot.
This update changes iscsistart to put the network interface associated with the
iSCSI context into an active state. As a result, iSCSI boot with bnx2i cards now
works correctly. (BZ#854776)

* Due to a regression in the iscsiuio 0.7.4.3 update, iSCSI discovery and login
failed on certain hardware. This has been corrected as part of the iscsiuio
0.7.6.1 update. As a result, iSCSI is functional again. (BZ#868305)

All users of iscsi-initiator-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
