Bug Fix Advisory mdadm bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0018-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated mdadm packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The mdadm packages contain a utility for creating, managing, and monitoring
Linux MD (multiple disk) devices.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Due to a bug in the raid-check script, non-zero mismatch counts were reported
on RAID 1 arrays, although this could happen legitimately on this type of array.
Consequently, the "repair" and "check" commands did not work as expected. The
raid-check script has been fixed and now non-zero mismatch counts are no longer
reported in the described scenario. (BZ#566828)

* Under certain circumstances, arrays that were always busy when running the
raid-check script would never be checked due to a bug in the script. This script
has been modified and all RAIDs with active I/0 are checked as expected.
(BZ#735803)

All mdadm users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs.
