Bug Fix Advisory
Red Hat Insights patch analysis
Identify and remediate systems affected by this advisory.
Updated OpenStack Orchestration packages that resolve various issues are
now available for Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10.0 (Newton) for RHEL 7.
Red Hat OpenStack Platform provides the facilities for building, deploying
and monitoring a private or public infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud
running on commonly available physical hardware. This advisory includes
- OpenStack Orchestration service
OpenStack Orchestration (heat) is a template-driven engine used to specify
and deploy configurations for Compute, Storage, and OpenStack Networking.
It can also be used to automate post-deployment actions, which in turn
allows automated provisioning of infrastructure, services, and
applications. Orchestration can also be integrated with Telemetry alarms to
implement auto-scaling for certain infrastructure resources.
Changes to the openstack-heat component:
- This update enables heat to resync the state of resources from nova and neutron when the heat resources are in `FAILED` state but the back-end resources are fine. This allows recovering from upgrade failures without replacing the resources.
- Originally, it was not possible to update any resource (still existing in the template used for update) that was in `DELETE_COMPLETE`state. The problem has been fixed. As a result, all `DELETE_COMPLETE` resources are now replaced when the stack is updated.
- This update introduces a new resource, `OS::Neutron::Trunk`, that adds support of neutron trunks in heat templates.
- With this update, the OS::Nova::ServerGroup resource now allows the 'soft-affinity' and 'soft-anti-affinity' policies to be used in addition to the 'affinity' and 'anti-affinity' policies.
- With this update, the `OS::Neutron::RBACPolicy` resource supports managing QoS policies and networks, which allows to share the Neutron QoS policy to subsets of tenants.
- With this update, the `OS::Neutron::Port` resource now supports the 'baremetal' and 'direct-physical' (passthrough) vnic_type.
- Originally, resources in the `CHECK_COMPLETE` state could not be looked up by their reference ID. Consequently, autoscaling was no longer possible after completing the stack-check operation on a stack containing an autoscaling group. The problem has been fixed. As a result, the resources in the `CHECK_COMPLETE` state can now be looked up by their reference ID and autoscaling continues to work after a stack-check.
Before applying this update, ensure all previously released errata relevant
to your system have been applied.
