Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2008-05-16
Last updated on: 2008-05-16

Details

Updated device-mapper-multipath packages that fix a bug are now available.

The device-mapper-multipath packages provide tools to manage multipath
devices by giving the device-mapper multipath kernel module instructions on
what to do, as well as by managing the creation and removal of partitions
for device-mapper devices.

These updated device-mapper-multipath packages fix a bug that occurs when
running multipathd on a system with selinux enabled. On such systems,
selinux was causing multipathd to crash whenever it created new multipath
devices.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated device-mapper-multipath
packages, which resolve this issue.
