Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2019:2176-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1142768
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15

An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


This update for nvme-cli fixes the following issues:

  • Add patch to fix error when calling 'nvme error-log', introduced by patch 0008. This also fixes the corresponding failing test in the regress-script. (bsc#1142768)
  • Reorder install steps: Install systemd services first, since they are required for the udev rules, avoiding a theoretical race condition.
  • Add script to determine host NQN based on the system UUID, which adds a new dependency on dmidecode for the corresponding archs: x86_64, aarch64, i586.
  • Write hostnqn and hostid not only if the corresponding file doesn't exist, but also when it is empty.
