Version 2.14.1
*(Released Fri, 10 Jul 2015)*
Incompatible/important changes
- The SSH security changes reduced the number of nodes which can SSH into
other nodes. Unfortunately enough, the Ganeti implementation of migration
for the xl stack of Xen required SSH to be able to migrate the instance,
leading to a situation where full movement of an instance around the cluster
was not possible. This version fixes the issue by using socat to transfer
instance data. While socat is less secure than SSH, it is about as secure as
xm migrations, and occurs over the secondary network if present. As a
consequence of this change, Xen instance migrations using xl cannot occur
between nodes running 2.14.0 and 2.14.1.
- This release contains a fix for the problem that different encodings in
SSL certificates can break RPC communication (issue 1094). The fix makes
it necessary to rerun 'gnt-cluster renew-crypto --new-node-certificates'
after the cluster is fully upgraded to 2.14.1
Other Changes
- The ``htools`` now properly work also on shared-storage clusters.
- Instance moves now work properly also for the plain disk template.
- Filter-evaluation for run-time data filter was fixed (issue 1100).
- Various improvements to the documentation have been added.
