Bug Fix Advisory piranha bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0065-1
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)


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

Piranha provides high-availability and load balancing services for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. The piranha packages contains various tools to administer and
configure the Linux Virtual Server (LVS), as well as the heartbeat and failover
components. LVS is a dynamically-adjusted kernel routing mechanism that provides
load balancing, primarily for Web and FTP servers.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, the lvsd daemon did not correctly identify the existence of a new
virtual server when re-reading the configuration file. As a consequence, the
lvsd daemon could terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault when the
pulse service was reloaded. With this update, the lvsd daemon correctly
determines if a virtual server has been added to the configuration file when the
pulse service is reloaded. (BZ#786364)

* Previously, the lvsd daemon exited if a nanny process encountered an error as
a result of executing the ipvsadm command to add or remove a real server. If a
nanny process attempted to delete a real server that was not defined for a
virtual service, or if a nanny process attempted to add a real server that was
already defined for a virtual service, nanny encountered an error from ipvsadm
and exited abnormally. With this update, a nanny process does not exit if it
fails to add or remove a real server. (BZ#739223)

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


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
