Advisory: RHBA-2013:1677-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-11-20

Details

Updated conman packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

ConMan is a serial console management program designed to support a large number
of console devices and simultaneous users. ConMan currently supports local
serial devices and remote terminal servers.

The conman packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.2.7, which provides
a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. With this
update, support for the ipmiopts directive in the conman.conf configuration file
has been included. (BZ#951698)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the length range of timezone strings was not sufficient to process
all known timezone codes. As a consequence, the conmand daemon failed to start
if the timezone name consisted of five or more characters. The maximum string
length has been set to 32, and conmand now always starts as expected.
(BZ#891938)

Users of conman are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs and add these enhancements.
