Bug Description

Binary package hint: vblade

Starting vblade, then running aoe-discover and aoe-stat on the client produces no output. (Using vblade 14-1ubuntu1 from Hardy Heron and, on the client, aoetools 21-1 from debian sid).

Watching the traffic in wireshark reveals that the client is sending a broadcast packet, and an strace of vblade shows it is reading this packet, but immediately dropping it without responding.

Inspection of the code shows that this is due to an incorrect length check which causes vblade to drop requests (such as this one) which are less than 60 bytes. The best solution is probably to upgrade to version 15, but I believe the attached patch is the relevant fix.

By "https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage", I figure if there's a patch available (and the same bug has been fixed upstream) then it's clearly confirmed....

Description: vblade-14 was released with a bug that prevents it from discovering properly. This was fixed in vblade-15 and is working for later version of Ubuntu.

The patch that fixes this issue is already attached to this bug. There should not be any regressions using this patch.

How to reproduce:

Install vblade from hardy and see if the vblade is discoverable.

If you have any questions please let me know.

I ran into this bug recently while doing regression testing and can confirm that upgrading to 14-1ubuntu1.1 fixes this for me.
