Bug Fix Advisory cmirror bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0256-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-02-20
Last updated on: 2012-02-20
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)


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

The cmirror package provides user-level tools for managing cluster mirroring.
Cmirror is needed for LVM-based mirroring (RAID1) in a cluster environment.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, cmirror could become suspended with the pvmove command
on a segmented volume when attempting to connect to the checkpoint service. With
this update, cmirror uses a finite number of retries when connecting to the
checkpoint service and no longer becomes suspended. (BZ#566799)

* Prior to this update, the cmirror init script was by default switched on after
the RPM installation, while all the other cluster init scripts were switched
off. With this update, the cmirror init script is by default switched off.

All users of cmirror 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
