RHBA-2017:2777 - Bug Fix Advisory
gdeploy bug fix and enhancement update for RHEL7
Bug Fix Advisory
Updated gdeploy package(s) that fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements is available for Red Hat Gluster Storage 3.3.
gdeploy is a tool which automates the process of creating, formatting,
and mounting bricks. When setting up a fresh cluster, gdeploy could be the
preferred choice of cluster set up, as manually executing numerous commands
can be error prone. The advantages of using gdeploy includes automated
brick creation, flexibility in choosing the drives to configure (sd, vd,
etc.), and flexibility in naming the logical volumes (LV) and volume groups
With this update, gdeploy now provides NFS-Ganesha, Samba, and SSL setup support in volumes. It also fixes several bugs and includes logging enhancements.
This update fixes the following bugs:
- Previously, gdeploy would fail if a subscribed user tries to subscribe again as subscription-manager would report an error stating user already subscribed. Since the failure did not report to anything fatal, it can be ignored. Users can also debug in case they face any genuine subscription-manager error. (BZ#1405966)
- Previously, ‘script’ module was used which would result in gdeploy failure if NFS-Ganesha packages are not installed on the local system. From this release onward, ‘shell’ module will be used which runs gdeploy without having the packages installed on the local system. (BZ#1452001)
In addition, this update adds the following enhancements:
- With this release, ‘volname’ is made optional while creating NFS Ganesha cluster, which was mandatory before. You might want to create an NFS Ganesha cluster without exporting or building any volumes i.e. creating a cluster without having any gluster volume. (BZ#1394796)
- With this release, a user can configure the chunksize from the backend-setup. It is simpler compared to ‘pv’, ‘vg’ or ‘lv’. Previously, ‘lv’ module was the only way to use chunksize as a parameter. (BZ#1444862)
- With this release, RAID5 disk-type is available in gdeploy along with JBOD, RAID6 and RAID10. (BZ#1411907)
Users of gdeploy with Red Hat Gluster Storage are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs and adds these enhancements.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
