An update that has four recommended fixes can now be installed.


This update for nvme-cli fixes the following issues:

  • Nvme flush now determines the namespace id, when not given via -n flag. This also fixes a failing test in the regress-script.
  • Fix failing service on devices without fc-hardware (bsc#1133594)
  • Add to allow stopping the parameterized services (bsc#1127076). Also change the service type so udevd doesn't have to wait for the termination of the service process.
  • rename transport type to bring the discovery log more in line with the code, see discussion at (bsc#1126565)
  • Increase size of ONTAP namespace path variable
  • Add new 'ontapdevices' command and corresponding documentation. Requested in (bsc#1131930).
