   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for sbd

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2021:3279-1
Rating:             important
References:         #1187547 #1189398 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability 12-SP3

   An update that has two recommended fixes can now be


   This update for sbd fixes the following issues:

   Update to version 1.5.0+20210720.f4ca41f

   - 'sbd-inquisitor':
     - Implement default delay start for diskless 'sbd'. (bsc#1189398)
     - Sanitize numeric arguments.
     - Tolerate and strip any leading spaces of command line option values.
     - Tell the actual watchdog device specified with '-w'. (bsc#1187547)

   Important notes on 'sync_resource_startup_default':

   - This configuration has to be in sync with the configuration in
     'pacemaker' where it is called 'sbd_sync'. The syncing enabled per
     default will lead to syncing enabled on upgrade without adaption of the
     con fig. The setting can still be overruled via 'sysconfig'. The setting
     in the 'config-template' packaged will follow the default if it is left
     empty. It is possible to have the setting in the 'config-template'
     deviate from the default by setting it to an explicit 'yes' or 'no'.
