An updated virt-who package that fixes several bugs is now available for Red HatEnterprise Linux 7.
The virt-who package provides an agent that collects information about virtualguests present in the system and reports them to the subscription manager.This update fixes the following bugs:* Prior to this update, virt-who failed to connect to Red Hat EnterpriseVirtualization Manager 4.0, as virt-who did not properly parse the virt-whoconfiguration file. With this update, virt-who reads its configuration asexpected, and can successfully connect to Red Hat Enterprise VirtualizationManager 4.0. (BZ#1372187)* Previously, virt-who was very verbose when writing to its log file.

As aresult, the log file grew very quickly, especially in large environments. Now,virt-who logs significantly less information in non-debug mode, and the log filethus grows slower. (BZ#1369473)* Prior to this update, virt-who could not handle error code 429 (Too ManyRequests) and stopped its operation when the error occurred. With this update,virt-who delays further communication with the Red Hat Subscription Manager whenit receives error 429, but resumes the operation afterwards. (BZ#1368365)Users of virt-who are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixesthis bug.
