Bug Fix Advisory device-mapper-multipath bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1599-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-12-20
Last updated on: 2012-12-20
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
using the device-mapper multipath kernel module.

This update fixes the following bug:

* If the initrd RAM disk was not rebuilt when a new storage device was added to
the system, the new device could be assigned a user_friendly_names value that
collided with a value already assigned to another device. Consequently, the
original device then stopped working correctly. Now, the multipathd daemon
accepts the "-B" option, which makes the user_friendly_names bindings file
read-only. When initrd calls multipath with the "-B" option, devices without a
binding to a user_friendly_names use their World Wide Identifier (WWID) instead,
thus fixing this bug. (BZ#858010)

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


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
