OpenShift Container Platform 4.4.4 bug fix update
Bug Fix Advisory
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform release 4.4.4 is now available with
updates to packages and images that fix several bugs.
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is Red Hat's cloud computing
Kubernetes application platform solution designed for on-premise or private
This advisory contains the container images for Red Hat OpenShift Container
Platform 4.4.4. See the following advisory for the RPM packages for this
Space precludes documenting all of the container images in this advisory.
See the following Release Notes documentation, which will be updated
shortly for this release, for details about these changes:

This update fixes the following bugs:
- Some Red Hat OpenStack environments could enforce a policy where VMs were unable to boot with ephemeral disks and need to boot from a Cinder volume. As a result, it was impossible to install OpenShift Container Platform with IPI because the bootstrap node would be unavailable. Now, the bootstrap node follows the rootVolume setting from the controlPlane machine pool. OpenShift Container Platform with IPI will now install successfully. (BZ#1828238)
- Cluster-network-operator on Kuryr bootstrapping had no logic to remove deprecated security group rules when they were replaced by new ones. The security group rules were left in place, causing incorrect security settings on environments updated from OpenShift Container Platform 4.3 to 4.4. Now, cluster-network-operator removes the old security group rules and pods are updated correctly. (BZ#1832899)
- On high incoming log rates Fluentd could flood the node's filesystem because the buffer queues were not limited. A node under disk pressure could crash the nodes and applications would be rescheduled as a result. Now, The Fluentd buffer queue per output is limited to fixed amount of chunks (default 32), reducing node disk pressure. (BZ#1826861)
- A code change removed variables set by the `ENV` statement in a Dockerfile from the internal list of variables to use when later resolving arguments in the Dockerfile. Now, the code has been updated to add variables defined by the `ENV` statement into the internal list of variables. (BZ#1817175)
- SVG errors were logged in the browser console due to incorrect attributes. Now, the patternfly and react-charts packages have been updated from upstream and SVG errors are no longer present. (BZ1765074)
All OpenShift Container Platform 4.4 users are advised to upgrade to these
updated packages and images.
For OpenShift Container Platform 4.4 see the following documentation, which
will be updated shortly for release 4.4.4, for important instructions on
how to upgrade your cluster and fully apply this asynchronous errata
