Bug Fix Advisory initscripts bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0885-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-11-15
Last updated on: 2010-11-15
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

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

The initscripts package contains system scripts to boot your system, change
runlevels, activate and deactivate most network interfaces, and shut the system
down cleanly.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, an attempt to reboot or shut down a system with a
running Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) daemon may have caused
the system to stop responding. This was caused by the fact that the system was
waiting for iSCSI devices to sync, even though the network was already shut
down. With this update, the /etc/rc.d/init.d/network startup script has been
modified not to deactivate network interfaces when the iSCSI daemon is running,
and the system can be shut down or rebooted as expected. (BZ#630538)

* Due to an incorrect loading of the bonding driver module, certain systems may
not have been able to activate a bonding interface. This error has been fixed,
and the bonding driver is now correctly loaded when an ifcfg script contains the
"BONDING_OPTS" option. (BZ#652250)

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


Solution

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

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
