Bug Fix Advisory openib bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1056-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

An updated openib package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The openib package provides the user space initialization scripts for the kernel
InfiniBand drivers.

* Prior to this update, bash encountered a syntax error in the ifup-ib script on
systems with an active InfiniBand network interface but without an explicitly
set maximum transmission unit (MTU). Due to this error, a boot process error
message was displayed during InfiniBand's interface initialization that too many
arguments were used. This update modifies the ifup-ib initialization script so
that it runs without errors. (BZ596823)

All InfiniBand users are advised to upgrade to this updated openib package,
which fixes this bug.


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
