Bug Fix Advisory device-mapper-multipath bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0728-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-09-30
Last updated on: 2010-09-30
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:

* Due to a race condition between udev and Device-Mapper, kpartx may have
attempted to create partitions on a multipath device before it was completely
initialized, causing no Device-Mapper partitions to be created. With this
update, udev now waits for the multipath device to be completely initialized
before attempting to create partitions on it. (BZ#634903)

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