Fixed In Version: Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
* the scanner for zipl.conf configuration files (scan.c) did not allow for the "timeout" option described in the zipl.conf documentation and zipl would therefore ignore the timeout parameter in the zipl.conf file. This updated package enables the scanner to recognize the timeout parameter, and zipl will therefore honor the timeout set by the user.
