RHBA-2014:0033 - Bug Fix Advisory
ovirt-node bug fix and enhancement update
Bug Fix Advisory
An updated ovirt-node package that fixes various bugs and contains a number of
enhancements is now available.
The ovirt-node package provides the utilities and recipes used to create and
configure the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor ISO image.
Note: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor is only available for the
Intel 64 and AMD64 architectures with virtualization extensions.
Some of the highlights included in this release are:
- This feature enables iSCSI software root support by enabling a small footprint
installation on the physical machine. Root and HostVG can be located on an iSCSI
target enabling usage of small drives for installation. (BZ#520111)
- IPv6 support has been added to the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.
The IPv6 function is enabled in the hypervisor TUI, and the NIC can receive IPv6
addresses. This is available in version rhev-hypervisor6-6.5-20131017.0.iso.
- A new feature has been developed, which is to create a new installer based on
the new TUI code-base. This has been done because the new codebase is more
flexible and supports features like response to screen resize request and mouse
input. The installer has been migrated to the new TUI codebase and utilizes all
its features. (BZ#911400)
- After successfully adding a host, the information for rhevm bridge was not
displayed in TUI. The TUI was displaying information for the em1 interface which
was not relevant. To fix this the following keys were added to let the TUI know
about the management instance which is managing the node, important NICs on the
system, and pages to be locked. (BZ#1017173)
- In previous upgrades cron was used to reboot the system. During the
installation process the installer wrote a new crontab file, but the installer
did not remove the crontab entry after an upgrade. This meant the system kept on
rebooting. To fix this, the crontab entry responsible for rebooting the system
is removed at boot, this ensures that the system is not kept in a reboot cycle.
- Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor now provides third party plugin
support, which allows independent software vendors (ISVs) to load applications
onto the hypervisor. This provides tools for developers to inject third party
plugins onto the hypervisor ISO image, to extend hypervisor functionality while
maintaining compatibility. (BZ#688331)
Detailed descriptions for other bug fixes and enhancements in this release are
provided in the Technical Notes book:
Users of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor are advised to upgrade
to this updated package, which corrects these issues and adds these
