Enhancement Advisory heketi bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2017:1111-1
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2017-04-20
Last updated on: 2017-04-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Gluster Storage Server 3 on RHEL-7


Updated heketi packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are
now available.

Heketi provides the Red Hat Gluster Storage volume life cycle management.
It creates the Red Hat Gluster Storage volumes dynamically and supports
multiple Red Hat Gluster Storage clusters.

This errata provides the following major enhancement along with several bug
fixes made to the Heketi component for this release:

Remove Device is a feature that allows heketi to move bricks from a failed
device to other devices. This way administrators can perform operations on the
failed device without losing brick data. As the copy of data happens with the
replace brick of gluster, which internally triggers selfheal, bricks can be
moved to a safer device and volumes will be served without any down time.


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