Bug Fix Advisory kexec-tools bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1272-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-09-17
Last updated on: 2012-09-17
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated kexec-tools packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The kexec fastboot mechanism allows booting a Linux kernel from the context of
an already running kernel. The kexec-tools package provides the /sbin/kexec
binary and ancillary utilities that form the user-space component of the
kernel's kexec feature.

This update fixes the following bug:

* When one interface was used for a iSCSI boot environment while is other was
used by kdump with the "net" option on, the ifconfig utility caused an error.
Consequently, vmcore was not collected in a dump server that stores vmcore
specified in the kdump.conf file. This bug has been fixed and a memory dump
capture now succeeds by kdump in an iSCSI boot environment. (BZ#822617)

Users of kexec-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
