RHBA-2018:0263 - Bug Fix Advisory
redhat-virtualization-host bug fix, and enhancement update for RHV 4.1.9
Bug Fix Advisory
Updated redhat-virtualization-host packages are now available.
The ovirt-node-ng packages provide the Red Hat Virtualization Host. These packages include redhat-release-virtualization-host, ovirt-node, and rhev-hypervisor. Red Hat Virtualization Hosts (RHVH) are installed using a special build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with only the packages required to host virtual machines. RHVH features a Cockpit user interface for monitoring the host's resources and performing administrative tasks.
Changes to the imgbased component:
- Previously, Red Hat Virtualization Host (RHVH) copied the kernel and initrd from a subdirectory into /boot to mitigate limitations in some platform utilities, however, these files were not cleaned up after RHVH layers were removed. As a result, after a large number of updates, /boot could fill up, leaving the system in an unbootable state.
In this release, RHVH cleans extraneous boot files after layer are removed, which prevents /boot from reaching full capacity. (BZ#1533931)
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.
