3. Business Case
lsvpd provide VPD to many different consumers and for many different reasons.  It is used by ppc64-diag in the determination of root-cause of hardware or  OS failure.  It is used by IBM Director to track hardware inventory and system usage information.  Without lsvpd, Director is unable to properly report diagnostics information or hardware failure, or provide specific repair instructions for adapter replacement.

lsvpd-1.6.7 incorporates a major bug-fix over 1.6.5, dealing with adapter output order.  Please pull down this version, or newer, from the referenced repository.

IBM is signed up to test and provide feedback, setting OtherQA.
Comment 3 John Jarvis 2011-08-25 15:41:02 EDT
Updates to this component are not in plan for RHEL 5.8.
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-09-22 20:39:54 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 5 John Jarvis 2011-10-19 14:39:53 EDT
Closing as WONTFIX as this component is not in plan for update in RHEL 5.8.
