Bug Fix Advisory ovirt-guest-agent bug fix and enhancement update for RHV 4.0.7

Advisory: RHBA-2017:0538-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2017-03-16
Last updated on: 2017-03-16
Affected Products: Red Hat Virtualization ( v.4 for RHEL 5)
Red Hat Virtualization ( v.4 for RHEL 6)


Updated ovirt-guest-agent packages that fix several bugs and add various
enhancements are now available.

The ovirt-guest-agent allows the Red Hat Virtualization Manager to receive
internal guest events and retrieve information such as the IP address and list
of installed applications from the guest. Additionally the guest agent allows
the Manager to execute specific commands, such as shut down or reboot, on guest
virtual machines.

Changes to the ovirt-guest-agent component:

* Previously, when virtual machines were stopped during a system shutdown or
reboot they appeared to VDSM as if they had been shut down from within the guest
operating system. This information was sent to the Red Hat Virtualization
Manager and this meant that the Manager did not start highly available virtual
machines on a different host because the Manager considered the the shut down of
the virtual machines to be user-initiated. Now, the Red Hat Virtualization guest
agent allows VDSM to detect that the virtual machine was shut down from within
the system and this means that highly available virtual machines stopped during
a system shutdown are restarted on a different host. (BZ#1389332)


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