Previously, CTDB was unable to start due to a missing filesystem directory. In spite of manually creating the directory, CTDB could not function properly due to an incorrect SELinux context. With this update, the rpm package now properly creates the missing directory with the required SELinux context and CTDB starts correctly. (BZ#1772836)
Users of Samba with Red Hat Gluster Storage are advised to upgrade to these updated packages.
