RightImages v13.3

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: 1.6.13
  • Base OS Snapshot timestamp: 201301061301

Changelog

All Images

  • Removed support for TATA cloud.
  • Ubuntu: Fixed SFTP path in SSHd configuration (w-5210)
    • This only affected RightScale-generated images.
    • SoftLayer images did not exhibit this issue.

  • Partition all images (w-5127)
    • This only affects RightScale built images.
    • This does not affect SoftLayer as they maintain their own images.
    • This does not affect Rackspace or EC2 RHEL, since these are re-bundled images supplied by the provider. 

Azure Images

  • Ubuntu: Removed secondary mirror frozen to 12/22/2012 for new platform changes (w-5364)
  • CentOS: Disabled OpenLogic repo by default. This fixes an issue where a package install fails because the repository URL is sometimes unreachable. This failure is due to a known issue with the OpenLogic mirror. When updating the kernel or Azure Linux agent, the OpenLogic repo must first be enabled: yum update --enablerepo=openlogic. The openlogic is a modified standard kernel with added hyper-v drivers. CentOS 6.4 will contain native support for hyper-v at which point updating the kernel from a standard repo will is supported. (w-5514).

EC2 Images

  • Added RHEL 6.3 for Sydney.

Google

  • Added support for /dev/disk/by-id/google-* device path. (w-5221) Google documentation recommends:

Always reference your ephemeral and persistent disks using the disk alias path rather than linking to it using /dev/vd*. The /dev/vd* path can change at anytime and is not a reliable path to use. Use the disk alias path, which always points to the correct location of the disk:
  • For ephemeral disks, use use /dev/disk/by-id/google-ephemeral-disk-*
  • For persistent disks, use /dev/disk/by-id/google-*

For more information, see Formatting and Attaching Additional Ephemeral Disk and Attaching a Persistent Disk at https://developers.google.com/comput...tips#isolating

Rackspace Open Cloud

  • Updated RightLink to version 5.8.12 which adds support for RackConnect.
  • Ubuntu only: SSH host keys from base the Rackspace image are no longer removed. This will allow Rackspace to be able to manage the instance before RightLink starts. Once the RightLink agent starts, it regenerates the SSH host keys so that it is unique for the instance. (w-5422)

Known Issues

All Ubuntu Images

For all Ubuntu Images, resolv.conf contains search domain for EC2 us-west-2 region. This will be fixed in the v13.4 image release. (w-5554)

  • This only affects RightScale-generated, non re-bundled images.
  • This does not affect Rackspace since these images are re-bundled separately in each region.
  • SoftLayer images did not exhibit this issue.
  • WORKAROUND: Use fully-qualified domain names.
