Bug Fix Advisory ctdb bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0059-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)


Updated ctdb packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

CTDB is a clustered database based on Samba's Trivial Database (TDB). The ctdb
package is a cluster implementation used to store temporary data. If an
application is already using TBD for temporary data storage, it can be very
easily converted to be cluster-aware and use CTDB.

These updated ctdb packages fix the following bug:

* Due to a name conflict of tools provided by the samba and tdb-tools packages,
some binaries from the tdb-tools have to be renamed upon installation. The ctdb
init script did not contain the updated names for the tdb-tools utilities.
Consequently, the ctdb service could not be started via the init script. This
update corrects the ctdb init script to search for tdb-tools utilities under
their new name. (BZ#739502)

All users of ctdb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.


Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
