Ah yeah, I guess I should add it. The iscsiadm --version values (minus the .el) is from upstream. The 6 in the rpm versioning was just for the rpm/redhat specific versioning. But I guess if we have the .el6 in there we should add the rest.

Comment 2 Suzanne Logcher 2012-05-18 20:54:07 UTC
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 4 Bruno Goncalves 2012-10-24 07:04:29 UTC
"iscsiadm --version" now shows the main version number, 6 in this case:

iscsiadm --version
iscsiadm version 6.2.0-873.2.el6

rpm -q iscsi-initiator-utils
