Description Bryn M. Reeves 2007-09-07 09:05:04 EDT
Description of problem:
The zcfcpconf.sh script makes use of the "tr" command which is installed into
/usr/bin. Since this script configures Z-series fiber devices prior to local
file system check & mount this fails on hosts that have /usr configured as a
separate file system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
s390utils-1.3.2-2.40.15, also exists in RHEL4.5 package.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a system with /usr as a separate file system (maybe on zfcp ;)
2. Boot the system

Or just read the script.

Actual results:
The pipeline in zfcpconf.sh that extracts configuration data from /etc/zfcp.conf
 fails because tr cannot be found. No zfcp devices are configured, possibly
causing the boot process to fail.

Expected results:
Zfcp devices are created as specified in /etc/zfcp.conf

Additional info:
This affects RHEL5 too - will clone.
