Bug Fix Advisory rgmanager bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0066-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-01-30
Last updated on: 2012-01-30
Affected Products: RHEL Clustering (v. 5 server)


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

The rgmanager package contains the Red Hat Resource Group Manager, which
provides the ability to create and manage high-availability server applications
in the event of system downtime.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, rgmanager inappropriately called the rg_wait_threads() function
during cluster reconfiguration. This could lead to an internal deadlock in
rgmanager which caused the cluster services to become unresponsive. This
irrelevant call has been removed from the code and deadlocks now no longer occur
during cluster reconfiguration. (BZ#759542)

All users of rgmanager are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.


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
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
