Bug Fix Advisory device-mapper-multipath bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1483-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-11-28
Last updated on: 2011-11-28
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

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 using the device-mapper multipath kernel module, as well as by creating and
removing partitions for Device-Mapper devices.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The multipath priority callout programs did not work correctly with CCISS
(Compaq Command Interface for SCSI-3 Support) devices because the multipath
utility was not able to convert the "!" character in the CCISS sysfs name to the
"/" character in the CCISS device name. As a consequence, callout programs
failed to set path priorities for these devices. The underlying code has been
modified, and the multipath utility now supports the new "%c" wildcard for
callout functions, and thus ensures the correct CCISS names conversion.
(BZ#729478)

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