SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for nvme-cli
Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2019:2171-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1142768
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15-SP1

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


This update for nvme-cli fixes the following issues:

  • Update nvme-cli to upstream version 1.8.1 (FATE#327304), (jsc#SLE-6589), (eco#166), Tracking Bug (bsc#1142768) * wdc: new commands: drive status, clear assert dump status, drive resize, NAND statistics * Add reporting of Virtual Management support to id-ctrl * NetApp: add command for NetApp ONTAP devices * Revert stop-on-failure with connect-all
  • 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.
