Advisory: RHBA-2013:0095-1
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 gfs-utils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The gfs-utils packages provide various user-space tools necessary to mount,
create, maintain, and test Global File Systems (GFS).

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the gfs_fsck file system checker failed to detect "bad
indirect block pointer" corruptions due to incorrect error paths. This update
modifies the gfs_fsck error paths. Now, gfs_fsck detects and repairs corruptions
as expected. (BZ#788694)

All users of gfs-utils 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 use the Red
