I was trying to get the kernel reread the status of the disks in
one raid controller after creating a new arrray. I erroneously
thought partprobe would do that. But running it had a nasty side
affect: It probed a different array in another controller which had
a GPFS filesystem and had no partition table, but was in the past
partitioned with parted. It mentioned that it found a backup
partition table, and then overwrote the current partition table
with the one from the backup.

Red Hat bugzilla 247278:


I am using parted-1.6.19-19.EL.x86_64 on rhel 4

Fixed packages were released last July:


Please update to parted-1.6.19-22.EL.
