We couldn’t wait until the end of April before pushing out our next release. That is why the Open vStorage Team decided to release today (April 17 2014) a small version with following set of features:
- Remove a vPool through the GUI: in version 1.0.2 it was already possible to create a vPool and extend the vPool across Hosts through the GUI. To make the whole vPool management process complete and more user friendly, we have added the option to remove a vPool from a Host. This is of course only possible in case there are no vDisks being served from the vPool to a vMachine on that Host.
- New version of Arakoon: Arakoon 1.7, the distributed key-value store that guarantees consistency above anything else, integrated in Open vStorage had some major rework done. This release also fixes bugs we encountered.
- Some small improvements include adding an NTP server by default to the Host and displaying the different used ports on the VSA detail page.
The version also includes bug fixes:
- Issue with connecting to SAIO via S3.
- Footer displaying incorrect values.
- Update sshd configuration to avoid client to send its own specific LOCALE settings.
- Shutting down first node in 4 node setup caused ovs_consumer_volumerouter to halt on node 2.
- KVM clones are now no longer automatically started.
- Open vStorage GUI sometimes didn’t list a second VM.
- Clone from vTemplate on KVM does not work in the absence of “default” network on Archipel.
- Restrict vTemplate deletion from the Open vStorage GUI when a child vMachine is present.
- Add vpool without copying ceph.* files now gives error.
To give this version a try, download the software and install with Quality Level Test.
