Updated iprutils packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The iprutils packages provide utilities to manage and configure Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) devices that are supported by the ipr SCSI storage device driver.


The iprutils packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.4.5, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. Notably, this update adds support for reporting cache hits on the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) disk drive, and increases the speed of array creation for an advanced function (AF) direct-access storage device (DASD). (BZ#1148147)

Bug Fix

Previously, the format of firmware files was case sensitive. As a consequence, device attributes were not saved correctly for SIS-64 adapters after updating firmware with the file format. With this update, the firmware format is case insensitive, and device attributes are saved correctly in the described situation.
Users of iprutils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
