Bug Fix Advisory piranha bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1059-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: RHEL Clustering (v. 5 server)


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

Piranha provides high-availability and load balancing services for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. Piranha includes various tools to administer and configure the
Linux Virtual Server (LVS), as well as the heartbeat and failover components.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, the pulse daemon aborted unexpectedly with a
segmentation fault when trying to reload if there were services without defined
servers. This update restarts only running services. Now, the pulse daemon
reloads as expected. (BZ#674859)

* Prior to this update, the nanny service forcibly terminated monitoring of all
the remaining services as well. This update allows to disable this behavior. A
new option in lvs.cf, hard_shutdown, controls this behavior. Old behavior is
retained with the default setting of 1 and manual intervention is required
with 0. The remaining monitors are not affected. (BZ#505172)

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


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
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
