Result: the needed package is available on the host. (BZ#2058177)
* Previously, the ovirt-ha-broker service failed to start on a host with a
DISA STIG profile.
In this release, the ovirt-ha-broker binaries were moved to /usr/libexec.
As a result, the ovirt-ha-broker service succeeds to start on a host with a
DISA STIG profile. (BZ#2050108)
* Previously, during self-hosted engine deployment, the tpgt value was not
used in the iSCSI login, creating duplicate iSCSI sessions.
IN this release, the tpgt value is used in the iSCSI login, and no

* Previously, if storage problems occurred and disappeared during a VM
migration attempt, it sometimes led to the VM being paused and not resuming
even if the VM had an auto-resume policy set.
In this release, the VM is handled according to its resume behavior policy
when the storage state changes during a VM migration attempt. (BZ#2010478)
* Previously, the VDSM used UDEV links to create the LVM filter. As a
result, the LVM sometimes grabbed SCSI devices during the boot process by
In this release, the LVM does not not try to grab SCSI devices during the
boot process, only using the multipath device specified in the LVM filter.
