Bug Fix Advisory device-mapper-multipath bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0696-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-09-13
Last updated on: 2010-09-13
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated device-mapper-multipath packages that fix a bug are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The device-mapper-multipath packages provide tools to manage multipath devices
by giving the "dm-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 packages provide a fix for the following bug:

* when multipathd occassionally received spurious remove uevents from the
kernel, multipathd incorrectly removed the multipath device. Since remove
uevents are only supposed to be generated after a device has been already
removed, multipath no longer removes a multipath device when it receives a
remove uevent. Instead, it simply cleans up its internal state if the device
has been removed. (BZ#624772)

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