Description Richard Soderberg 2005-06-16 10:31:18 UTC
Vipul has released razor-agents 2.71 to address two critical issues in all prior
razor-agents.  One of these issues addresses a bug in the discovery logic, where
a razor-agent that cannot reach the discover server may go into an infinite loop
until discover is available, slowly leaking memory and eventually crashing the

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. iptables -I OUTPUT --dport 2703 -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset
2. rm ~/.razor/*.lst
3. razor-admin -d -discover

Actual Results:  
razor-agents 2.67 goes into an infinite loop, due to a bug in the Perl code
within bootstrap_discovery when bootstrap_discovery fails.

Expected Results:  
Failed to connect to the discovery server twice and then stopped, as 2.71 does.

The two issues fixed by 2.71 affect all razor-agents 2.67 deployments on all
operating systems, Gentoo included.
