Bug Fix Advisory openais bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0495-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-05-09
Last updated on: 2011-05-09
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.6.z server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Long Life (v. 5.6 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 update fixes for the following bugs:

* When a system limit for semaphores or shared memory was exceeded on SysV, the
openais client sometimes went into a loop. With this update, the openais client
handles the situation properly, and no longer enters an infinite loop when
either of these limits is exceeded. (BZ#694180)

* When the OpenAIS limit for open files was exceeded, the openais executable
terminated unexpectedly. With this update, if the limit is reached, the
published server listening socket is withdrawn and the connection closes without
causing any crashes. (BZ#694181)

* Previously, if a token was lost in the recovery state, the openais executable
sometimes accepted a commit token with old ring ID information. This resulted in
an unexpected termination. This bug has been fixed and lost tokens are now
handled properly. (BZ#694182).

* When the ring ID file for a processor was less then 8 bytes long, totemsrp
terminated unexpectedly. Now, OpenAIS always creates fresh ring ID file data
when an incorrect number of bytes are read from the ring ID. (BZ#694183)

All users of openais are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
these bugs.


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
