8.39. fcoe-target-utils

Updated fcoe-target-utils packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The fcoe-target-utils packages contain a command-line interface for configuring FCoE LUNs (Fibre Channel over Ethernet Logical Unit Numbers) and backstores.

Bug Fixes

Due to an error leaving a device marked as in-use, attempts to map a block backstore that had been previously mapped would fail. With this update, mappings of block backstores are properly released, and remapping a block device now succeeds.
Prior to this update, the kernel terminated unexpectedly when the fcoe-target daemon stopped. A patch has been provided to fix this bug, and the kernel now no longer crashes.
Previously, the target reported support for sequence-level error recovery erroneously. Consequently, interrupting the connection between the FCoE target and a bnx2fc initiator could cause the initiator to erroneously perform sequence-level error recovery instead of exchange-level error, leading to a failure of all devices attached to the target. This bug has been fixed, and connections with a bnx2fc initiator may now be interrupted without disrupting other devices.
Prior to this update, there was an error in the python-rtslib library. Consequently, when creating a pscsi (SCSI pass-through) storage object in the targetcli utility, the python-rtslib returned a traceback. The error in the library has been fixed, and pscsi storage objects are now created without errors.
Since the fcoe-utils command-line interface is required by the fcoe-target-utils packages and is not supported on the s390x architecture, fcoe-target-utils will not work properly on s390x, and thus has been removed.
Users of fcoe-target-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
