Version 2.6.2
-------------
*(unreleased)*
Behaviour change: hbal won't rebalance anymore instances which have the
'auto_balance' attribute set to false. This was the intention all along,
but until now it only skipped those from the N+1 memory reservation
(DRBD-specific).
Besides that, a number of bugfixes:
- Disk adoption interaction with ipolicy checks has been fixed.
- Tap device's MAC prefix is now forcibly set to "fe" (issue 217).
- Option to force master-failover without voting added (issue 282).
- Removal of storage directory on shared file storage was fixed (issue
262).
- Validation of LVM volume group name in OpClusterSetParams
(``gnt-cluster modify``) was corrected (issue 285).

Important behaviour change: hbal won't rebalance anymore instances which
have the ``auto_balance`` attribute set to false. This was the intention
all along, but until now it only skipped those from the N+1 memory
reservation (DRBD-specific).
A significant number of bug fixes in this release:
- Fixed disk adoption interaction with ipolicy checks.
- Fixed networking issues when instances are started, stopped or
migrated, by forcing the tap device's MAC prefix to "fe" (issue 217).
- Fixed the warning in cluster verify for shared storage instances not
being redundant.
- Fixed removal of storage directory on shared file storage (issue 262).
- Fixed validation of LVM volume group name in OpClusterSetParams
(``gnt-cluster modify``) (issue 285).
- Fixed runtime memory increases (``gnt-instance modify -m``).
- Fixed live migration under Xen's ``xl`` mode.
- Fixed ``gnt-instance console`` with ``xl``.
- Fixed building with newer Haskell compiler/libraries.
- Fixed PID file writing in Haskell daemons (confd); this prevents
restart issues if confd was launched manually (outside of
``daemon-util``) while another copy of it was running
- Fixed a type error when doing live migrations with KVM (issue 297) and
the error messages for failing migrations have been improved.
- Fixed opcode validation for the out-of-band commands (``gnt-node
power``).
- Fixed a type error when unsetting OS hypervisor parameters (issue
311); now it's possible to unset all OS-specific hypervisor
parameters.
- Fixed the ``dry-run`` mode for many operations: verification of
results was over-zealous but didn't take into account the ``dry-run``
operation, resulting in "wrong" failures.
- Fixed bash completion in ``gnt-job list`` when the job queue has
hundreds of entries; especially with older ``bash`` versions, this
results in significant CPU usage.
And lastly, a few other improvements have been made:
- Added option to force master-failover without voting (issue 282).
- Clarified error message on lock conflict (issue 287).
- Logging of newly submitted jobs has been improved (issue 290).
- Hostname checks have been made uniform between instance rename and

processing jobs waiting for locks; instead, those jobs will be started
once again after the master daemon is started the next time (issue
296).
- Support for Xen's ``xl`` program has been improved.
- A type error when doing live migrations with KVM has been fixed (issue
297) and error messages for failing migrations have been improved.
- Another type error when unsetting OS parameters has been fixed (issue
311).
- Support for Xen's ``xl`` program has been improved (besides the fixes
above).
- Reduced logging noise in the Haskell confd daemon (only show one log
entry for each config reload, instead of two).
- Several man page updates and typo fixes.
