Description

LSAC(v2)
The OpenIPMI packages provide command-line tools and utilities to access platform information using Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). System administrators can use OpenIPMI to manage systems and to perform system health monitoring. This update fixes the following bug: * In cases of congested network or slow-responding BMC (Baseboard Management Controller), the reply operation timeout triggered the protocol command retry action. Consequently, the ipmitool utility could incorrectly process a LAN session protocol command with the reply from a previous protocol command. This update fixes handling of expected replies for each command alone and cleans up expected replies between commands. Now, the retried reply of the first command is correctly ignored while the later command, which is currently pending, is properly processed in the described scenario. (BZ#867008) Users of OpenIPMI are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
