Bug Fix Advisory system-config-cluster bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0046-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: RHEL Clustering (v. 5 server)

Details

An updated system-config-cluster package that fixes several bugs is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The system-config-cluster package contains system-config-cluster, a utility that
allows you to graphically manage cluster configuration.

This updated fixes the following bugs:

* When a cluster service with the "__independent_subtree" attribute was edited,
this attribute was stripped after saving the cluster configuration using the
system-config-cluster utility. This bug has been fixed and the
"__independent_subtree" attribute is no longer removed from services in this
situation. (BZ#741292)

* The cluster schema bundled with the system-config-cluster utility was missing
the "suborg" attribute for fence_cisco_ucs, and the following attributes for
fence_ipmilan: "cipher", "privlvl", "delay", "power_wait", and "timeout". As a
consequence, any cluster configuration that included these attributes failed
validation. This update adds the missing attributes to the cluster schema.
(BZ#808498, BZ#824451)

* The system-config-cluster utility did not allow users to configure fencing
when an unknown fencing device which was supported by the cluster, but not by
system-config-cluster was defined in the cluster configuration. Consequently,
having such a fence device in the cluster.conf file caused system-config-cluster
to produce a non-fatal traceback and refuse to show any configuration options
for that device, or for fencing devices in general. This bug has been fixed and
system-config-cluster works as expected in such a case. (BZ#837045)

All users are advised to upgrade to this updated system-config-cluster package,
which fixes these bugs.
