Details

An updated fence-agents package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat fence agents are a collection of scripts to handle remote power
management for several devices. They allow failed or unreachable nodes to be
forcibly restarted and removed from the cluster.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The fence_rhevm fencing agent uses the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization API
to check the power status ("on" or "off") of a virtual machine. In addition to
the states of "up" and "down", the API includes other states like "unassigned",
"powering_up", "paused", "migrating", "unknown", "not_responding",
"wait_for_launch", "reboot_in_progress", "saving_state", "restoring_state",
"suspended", "image_illegal", "image_locked" or "powering_down". Previously,
only if the machine was in the "up" state, the "on" power status was returned.
The "off" status was returned for all other states although the machine was
actually running. This allowed for successful fencing even before the machine
was really powered off. With this update, the fence_rhevm agent detects power
status of a cluster node more conservatively, and the "off" status is returned
only if the machine is really powered off, it means in the "off" state.
(BZ#785816)

All users of fence-agents are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.
