Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : iscsi-initiator-utils
Version     :
Release     : 0.0.fc5
Summary     : iSCSI daemon and utility programs
Description :
The iscsi package provides the server daemon for the iSCSI protocol,
as well as the utility programs used to manage it. iSCSI is a protocol
for distributed disk access using SCSI commands sent over Internet
Protocol networks.

Update Information:

Rebase iscsi-initiator-utils to upstream open-iscsi-2.0-742.
This update adds functionality similar to RHEL3/4's iscsi-ls
command and RHEL4's iscsi-rescan command. See the iscsiadm
man page for details on the session mode --rescan and --info

If upgrading from a 5.1 or lower release see the README and
man pages for details on the changes. Major changes include:

- The config files have moved from /etc to /etc/iscsi.
- The db4 database is no longer used. Instead, the node info
is stored in text files in /var/lib/iscsi and when new node
info variables are added you no longer have to rebuild the
the node db.
- iscsiadm has a new format. See the README for details.
