Advisory: RHBA-2011:1152-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-08-11
Last updated on: 2011-08-11
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated device-mapper-multipath packages that fix one 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.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, device-mapper-multipath was looking for a CCISS device information
at the incorrect location in the sysfs file system. As a consequence, it was
impossible to configure multipath on CCISS devices. This bug has been fixed,
device-mapper-multipath now finds the device information properly in the
described scenario, and multipath can now be properly configured on CCISS
devices. (BZ#728144)

All users of device-mapper-multipath are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix this bug.
