Previously, during the upgrade of the underlying Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system to version 7.2, the version of Samba installed with Red Hat Gluster Storage would be replaced by the newer Samba version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As a consequence, the SMB features of the Red Hat Gluster Storage installation would stop working.
With this update, the Samba version of RHGS is updated so that it will no longer be overwritten by the Red Hat Enterprise Linux update. The updated Samba package also complies with new dependencies of other Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 packages.
This update must be installed either prior to or along with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux update. This ensures continued functionality of the SMB features of the Red Hat Gluster Storage installation.
