Description James Ralston 2005-06-24 21:29:04 UTC
For U2, we'd really like to see the aoe (ATA over Ethernet) backported, as we're
interested in looking at aoe-based SAN solutions.

I believe the aoe driver landed in 2.6.11.  I haven't tried backporting it to
the RHEL4 kernel myself yet.

This looks like a feature request. In order to file a RHEL feature request,
please either contact Red Hat's Technical Support line at 888-REDHAT-1 or file a
web ticket at  Bugzilla is not an official
support channel, has no response guarantees, and may not route your request to
the correct area to assist you.  Using the official support channels above will
guarantee that your issue is handled appropriately and routed to the individual
or group which can best assist you with this issue and will also allow Red Hat
to track the issue, ensuring that any applicable feature addition is included in
all releases and is not dropped from a future update or major release.

Comment 2 James Ralston 2005-08-19 19:45:09 UTC
I've filed Service Request Number 645318, requesting that this Bugzilla bug be
treated as an official RHEL feature request.

Comment 3 James Ralston 2007-05-02 15:25:32 UTC
Since RHEL5 is out, and it includes the aoe driver, we have no need to backport
the driver to RHEL4.  Please close this bug with CURRENTRELEASE (Bugzilla won't
let me do it).

Closing as per comment #3 from original reporter.
