Description Aaron Brown 2009-07-14 18:54:54 EDT
Description of problem:
Checked both the i386 and x86_64 variants of the DVD and CD Red Hat 6.0 Alpha
images as well as the source CD images and no package for the dcb
administrative tools is included.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Extract CD images or burn CDs and search for dcb, or set up installation
repository and try to install dcbd

Actual results:
No package is found.

Expected results:
Package found and installation attempt installs package.

Additional info:
Selected yum as a "closest guess" as there is no listing for the dcbd
component and I can not install the user tool via yum.  The component really
should be dcbd.
Comment 2 Aaron Brown 2009-07-14 19:14:20 EDT
Adding zeleny@redhat.com, the package maintainer for this component in Rawhide and Intel developers robert.w.love@intel.com, yi.zoue@intel.com
Comment 3 Aaron Brown 2009-07-14 19:17:33 EDT
Yi Zou does not have a Red Hat Bugzilla account yet so my attempt to add him was rejected (and I misspelled it in the above comment, it should be yi.zou@intel.com

review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for
Comment 5 Aaron Brown 2009-07-14 19:22:36 EDT
Changing owner to Jan Zeleny, the maintainer for this package under Fedora 11 and Rawhide.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2009-07-15 21:34:51 EDT
Should be fixed in Alpha 2.
Comment 7 Martin George 2009-10-27 09:49:26 EDT
I see fcoe-utils included in RHEL 5.4 GA, but not the dcb package. Is this planned for RHEL 5.4?
Comment 8 Jan Zeleny 2009-10-27 10:26:06 EDT
No. The dcbd package depends on kernel 2.6.29 and higher, which is not included in RHEL 5.4 AFAIK.
Comment 9 Eric Multanen 2009-10-27 14:58:37 EDT
The dcbd package will be in RHEL 6 alpha 2 - correct?

Also, Jan is correct about the dcbd package and RHEL 5.4.
Comment 10 John Villalovos 2009-10-27 15:44:41 EDT
RHEL 6 Alpha 2 was released today.  Can you recheck?
Comment 11 Suzanne Yeghiayan 2009-10-30 17:25:13 EDT
dcbd-0.9.15-3.el6 was included in Alpha 2.
Comment 12 releng-rhel@redhat.com 2009-10-30 18:10:33 EDT
Fixed in 'dcbd-0.9.15-3.el6', included in compose 'RHEL6.0-20091029.0'.
Moving to ON_QA.
Comment 13 Aaron Brown 2009-11-12 21:35:56 EST
The Red Hat 6 Alpha2 release does have FCoE, dcbd and other dependencies included with the install media.  This was confirmed with both x86 and x86_64 architectures.  Versions are:
# dcbd -v
dcbd v0.9.15
Copyright (c) 2007-2009, Intel Corporation

Portions used and/or modified from:  hostapd v 0.5.7
Copyright (c) 2004-2007, Jouni Malinen <j@w1.fi> and contributors

# fcoeadm -v
fcoeadm v1.0.7
Copyright (c) 2009, Intel Corporation.

Note:  These are appropriate versions for the 2.6.31-27.el6.2 kernel that is included with the Alpha2, but they will need to be revved if / when the kernel jumps to a 2.6.32 or alter version.
Comment 14 Alexander Todorov 2010-08-20 14:14:05 EDT
In snap #12  - 0818.0 

fcoeadm is included in fcoe-utils package but there's no dcbd package or command available. Moving back to ASSIGNED.
Comment 15 Eric Multanen 2010-08-20 14:24:35 EDT
The lldpad package replaced the dcbd package.
Comment 16 Alexander Todorov 2010-08-21 07:10:58 EDT
lldpad-0.9.38-3.el6 is available in snap #12. 

# rpm -q lldpad -l

# dcbtool -v
dcbtool v0.9.38
