RightImages v13.2

Table of Contents

Overview

These release notes document new features, changes, and bug fixes to RightImages.

  • RightLink version: 5.8.8
  • OS package repository freeze date: 11.15.12
  • Base OS Snapshot timestamp: 201211150000

Changes

Base Images

These changes affect all distros and all clouds:

  • Ruby upgraded to version 1.9.3p327 (5141)
  • Rubygems upgraded to version 1.8.23 (5145)
  • Ephemeral drive now mounted to /mnt by default (4472)
  • NTP package added that defaults to time.rightscale.com to ensure RightLink enrolls (5025)

Ubuntu Images

  • Rsyslog no longer drops messages from RightLink due to message rate limit (4912)
  • Updating kernel on Ubuntu will now update grub.conf (4918)

CentOS

  • Updating kernel on CentOS will now update grub.conf (4919)

Google

  • gcutil upgraded to version to 1.4.1 (5192)
  • Ephemeral disk paths changed (5221)
  • The v5-8-8-5 google images have picked up the latest kernels from Google Compute Engine which now use a SCSI disk interface rather than a block interface. If you have been referencing your disks using /dev/vd*, your scripts should be changed to use following path for ephemeral disks:
    • /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0Google_EphemeralDisk_ephemeral-disk-*

 

In the future, RightScale will be implementing support for disk path aliases which will isolate customer script from future Google Compute Engine infrastructure changes.
