Bug Fix Advisory iscsi-initiator-utils bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0721-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-09-29
Last updated on: 2010-09-29
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated iscsi-initiator-utils package that fixes a bug is now available.

The iscsi-initiator-utils package provides the server daemon for the iSCSI
protocol, as well as the utility programs used to manage it. iSCSI is a protocol
for distributed disk access using SCSI commands sent over Internet Protocol
networks.

This updated iscsi-initiator-utils package fixes the following bug:

* Previously, iscsiadm did not contain a discovery mode with an update option.
This prevented vdsm to discover targets with CHAP (Challenge-Handshake
Authentication Protocol) authentication. This update adds a iscsiadm discoverydb
mode ('iscsiadm -m discoverydb') which fixes this issue and can be used to
create, store and edit discovery records. (BZ#604649)

* Previously, iscsid shared the 'semarg' structure between multiple devices and
thus caused a deadlock to occur when logging was initiated. With this update,
each process is assigned its own structure and deadlocks no longer occurs during
the logging process. (BZ#632094)

All users of iscsi-initiator-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated
package, which resolves this issue.
