Chapter 5. Notable Bug Fixes
This section describes bugs fixed in this release of Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Cloud that have significant impact on users. In addition, it includes descriptions fixed known issues from previous versions.
subscription-manager Would Incorrectly Report that the
ceph-osd Package was Still Installed
Previously, when removing the
ceph-osd package from the overcloud nodes, the corresponding Ceph product key was not removed. Therefore, the
subscription-manager would incorrectly report that the
ceph-osd package was still installed. The script that handles the removing of the
ceph-osd package now also removes the corresponding Ceph product key. The script that removes the
ceph-osd package and product key executes only during the overcloud update procedure. As a result,
subscription-manager list no longer reports the Ceph OSD as is installed.
ceph-disk Unit Files
Previously, the transition to containerized Ceph left some "ceph-disk" unit files. The files were harmless, but appeared as failing, which could be distressing to the operator. With this update, executing the "switch-from-non-containerized-to-containerized-ceph-daemons.yml" playbook disables the "ceph-disk" unit files too.
