1.225.1.  RHBA-2009:1286: bug fix and enhancement update

Updated tog-pegasus packages that fix various bugs and add enhancements are now available.
OpenPegasus WBEM Services for Linux enables management solutions that deliver increased control of enterprise resources. WBEM is a platform and resource independent DMTF standard that defines a common information model and communication protocol for monitoring and controlling resources from diverse sources.
These updated packages upgrade tog-pegasus to the more recent upstream version 2.7.2, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous packaged version. The OpenPegasus Feature Status page referenced below summarizes the changes in this version. (BZ#474458)
In addition, these updated packages provide fixes for the following bugs:
  • the upstream documentation about using SSL with OpenPegasus shipped in the previous package was inaccurate and out-of-date. This updated package contains additional documentation in the file README.RedHat.SSL that describes how to configure and how to use SSL with OpenPegasus. (BZ#479038)
  • when the out of process providers feature is enabled, OpenPegasus executes WBEM providers in a separate process from the WBEM server. This isolates the server from any problems in the providers. Previously, the tog-pegasus package installed OpenPegasus with this feature disabled. Now, OpenPegasus is installed with the out of process providers enabled by default, therefore making WBEM services more reliable. (BZ#455109)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated tog-pegasus packages, which resolve these issues and add these enhancements.
