Known Limitations

HAProxy not Supproted with RHEL 6

HAProxy officially removed from the EPEL repo under EL6 by RedHat on 2.21.13. The "Load Balancer with HAProxy" ServerTemplate will strand using RHEL 6 since the haproxy package is no longer available.

Limit for listing buckets in Google

When listing all of the buckets in a specified project, there is a maximum number that will return. Buckets are listed alphabetically and not chronologically, so the buckets returned are the first 100 in an alphabetical list. For more information, see https://developers.google.com/storag...ods#getservice.

Restore from ROS

When doing a restore from ROS, we recommend setting the "Percentage of the LVM used for data (1)"  input to 50. This does not affect backups, so a system already set to 90% can do a backup without issues. If a secondary restore does fail, set the "Percentage of the LVM used for data (1)" input to 50 on the next server, change the 'Total Volume Size" input accordingly and relaunch.

Bug Fixes

Microsoft SQL sql-server-mirroring/mirroring-state graph missing

It was discovered after launching two MSSQL Principal and Mirror servers in AWS using the Database Manager for Microsoft SQL Server ServerTemplate that "sql-server-mirroring/mirroring-state" is missing, generating the WARNING icon for the five alerts in this ServerTemplate that rely on this graph; "sql-server-mirroring/mirroring-state" should be available. (4501)

Incorrect graphs for the Microsoft SQL SQL ServerTemplate

It was discovered that a principal-mirror pair with the Database Manager for Microsoft SQL Server ServerTemplate were returning incorrect graphs. Few graphs are labeled *_per_sec, but they only go one way: up. Some reset to 0 when SQL Server is restarted. If wmi is returning a total value, we now convert that into 'per_sec' using the Counter type and not Gauge. (4582)

Microsoft Active Directory ServerTemplate fails backups when server is 'Locked'

Continuous backups were failing for locked servers with the Microsoft Active Directory ServerTemplate. (4749)

Microsoft SQL ServerTemplate: "Property Owner is not available for Database..." after restore

When launching a standalone MSSQL server with snapshot backups using the Database Manager for Microsoft SQL Server (v12.11.2-LTS) ServerTemplate in AWS, an error would occur when RDP'ing into the server, creating a database and running "DB SQLS Backup Data and Log volumes" to create a backup. (4948)
