1.184.1. RHBA-2010:0231: bug fix and enhancement update

Updated sblim packages that fix various bugs and add various enhancements are now available.
SBLIM stands for Standards-Based Linux Instrumentation for Manageability. It consists of a set of standards-based, Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) modules that use the Common Information Model (CIM) standard to gather and provide systems management information, events, and methods to local or networked consumers via an CIM object services broker using the CMPI (Common Manageability Programming Interface) standard. This package provides a set of core providers and development tools for systems management applications.
These packages address the following bugs:
* The libraries installed with sblim-cmpi-base were assigned incorrect permissions. This meant that any user outside of a specific group could not read the packages, forcing the check for the SBLIM Base in sblim-sfcb to fail. To fix this bug, when the libraries are installed the assigned permissions allow for any user group to access them. The library files are now able to be used in the building of other packages. (BZ#526756)
* Some sblim packages were released with the incorrect version number. This did not cause any error in installation or the running of the components. For consistency in file naming conventions and to improve package management, the version numbers of all sblim packages now reflect the correct version numbers. (BZ#516785)
As well, these updated packages add the following enhancements:
* A new sblim-smis-hba package has been added to the SBLIM package set. This package adds the Host Bus Adapters (HBA) API that is an industry standard C language for management of fibre channel host bus adapters and discovery of SAN resources. (BZ#512238)
* A new sblim-sfcb package has been added to the SBLIM package set. This package adds the Small Footprint CIM Broker (SFCB). The SFCB allows for improved standardized Linux Systems Management in terms of a CIM and WEBM infrastructure between linux distributions. (BZ#512370)
* A new sblim-sfcc package has been added to the SBLIM package set. This package adds the Small Footprint CIM Client (SFCC). The SFCC provides a client that can directly access the SFCB in order to add a CIM to your programs. (BZ#512374)
* These packages include the upgrade of many SBLIM packages to the latest upstream versions. These upgrades fix bugs and add KVM support and CMPI 2.0 compliance. (BZ#512230)
* The license for all SBLIM packages has been changed to EPL. (BZ#512230,
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated sblim packages, which resolve these issues and add these enhancements.
