Advisory: RHBA-2014:0021-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2014-01-13
Last updated on: 2014-01-13
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated lvm2-cluster packages that fix one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The lvm2-cluster packages contain support for Logical Volume Management (LVM) in
a clustered environment.

This update fixes the following bug:

* When one of the LVM client processes was killed, the clvmd daemon had to wait
for a mutex to stop the LVM client thread. Consequently, lvm utility commands in
a cluster became indefinitely blocked. This update introduces a patch which
fixes the deadlock, and lvm utility commands now work correctly. (BZ#1039772)

Users of lvm2-cluster are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.
