Enhancement Advisory jwhois enhancement update

Advisory: RHEA-2011:0419-2
Type: Product Enhancement Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated jwhois package that adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The jwhois package provides a whois client which is used to obtain information
about domain names and IP addresses from whois servers.

This update adds the following enhancement:

* Previously, jwhois did not contain the whois server details for the dotEmarat
extension. Due to this issue, whois queries for these extensions were
incorrectly directed to whois.internic.net. With this update, the configuration
file correctly directs queries for the dotEmarat domains to whois.aeda.net.ae.
(BZ#663972)

All users of whois clients are advised to upgrade to this updated package which
adds this enhancement.


Solution

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
