Description Vesselin Kolev 2010-05-06 22:12:02 UTC
Description of problem:

When iser is used, librdmacm-devel should be installed to satisfy start-up dependencies:

(from syslog)
tgtd: librdmacm.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - iser transport not used

The bug is similar to another reported:


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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make some iser based configuration in /etc/tgt/targets.conf
2. Start service (tgtd daemon):

# service tgtd start
Actual results:

Daemon starts, but error is logged in syslog.

Expected results:

Clean start with no errors of this kind.

Additional info:

librdmacm-1.0.10-2.el6 doesn't provide /usr/lib/librdmacm.so. The missing library is provided by librdmacm-devel-1.0.10-2.el6.

It's preferable to  dlopen() the versioned file and require the library package, rather than the .so symlink and the -devel pacakge.

Comment 4 Mike Christie 2010-05-08 01:45:42 UTC
I am going to mark this as a dup of 589689 since these errors are all under needing to make iser get installed correctly.

Oh yeah,

To properly use dlopen like how Bill describes in comment #3, I am using this bugzilla:

Actually, let me use this one for Bill's comment.

590097 is a different issue.

I can replicate this here and here is the patch I am proposing to fix the problem where we require the devel packages when we only want the lib ones:
