Bug Fix Advisory openais bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0708-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-09-21
Last updated on: 2010-09-21
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

An updated openais package that fixes various bugs is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The Application Interface Specification (AIS) is an API and a set of policies
for developing applications that maintain services during faults. The OpenAIS
Standards Based Cluster Framework is an OSI-certified implementation of the
Service Availability Forum AIS. The openais package contains the openais
executable, OpenAIS service handlers, default configuration files, and an init
script.

This updated openais package provides fixes for the following bugs:

* previously, an internal protocol variable was set on retransmission when it
should only have been set on the first transmission. With this update, this
variable is only set on the first transmission. (BZ#601077)

* previously, multicast could be delayed while sending unicast packets due to
the bahavior of many hardware switches. With this update, only required messages
are retransmitted. (BZ#621264)

All users of OpenAIS are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves these issues.


Solution

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

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
