2.5.  RHEA-2009:1318: fcoe-utils

A new fcoe-utils package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The fcoe-utils package contains the fcoeadm command line utility, which is the Fibre Channel-over-Ethernet (FCoE) management tool for Linux systems. The fcoeadm utility can create, destroy and reset an FCoE instance on a given network interface, as well as retrieve and display information about FCoE instances.
This fcoe-utils package is new to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. (BZ#494555)
All Fibre Channel-over-Ethernet users requiring an administrative FCoE interface should install this newly-released package, which adds this enhancement.
