1.14.1. RHBA-2010:0057: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2010:0057
An updated bootparamd package that fixes a bug is now available.
Bootparamd is a server process that provides information to diskless clients necessary for booting; consulting the /etc/bootparams file for required information.
When bootparamd is used for multihomed environment handling, it would previously evaluate the route to be returned to the first requesting client and re-evaluate the route to be returned for each client thereafter. Even though it re-evaluates what router IP to return for each following client, it would always send back the first route, due to it being the one that was cached. This updated package ensures that no re-evaluation occurs concerning the router IP to return for each client. (BZ#446108)
All users of bootparamd are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
