Bug Fix Advisory device-mapper-multipath bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2014:0410-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2014-04-17
Last updated on: 2014-04-17
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated device-mapper-multipath packages that fix one bug are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The device-mapper-multipath packages provide tools to manage multipath devices
using the device-mapper multipath kernel module.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, if the user created duplicate aliases, or aliases that matched the
user_friendly names, those devices switched their paths, and thus caused
multipath device path corruption. The underlying code has been fixed, and the
multipath utility now refuses to reload a device with an existing duplicate
alias. In addition, multipath now issues a warning message on potentially
conflicting aliases. As a result, multipath no longer corrupts data if users
name two devices identically. (BZ#1065229)

Users of device-mapper-multipath are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant
