Current Series Release Notes


Upgrade Notes

  • Due to the limitations of managed in-band inspection, the inspector_extra_kernel_options parameter must only contain key=value pairs. Use extra_kernel_options to provide generic kernel options.

Bug Fixes

  • Uses the appropriate ironic-python-agent branch when building a deploy ramdisk instead of unconditionally using master. Set ipa_git_branch to override.

  • The inspector iPXE template kernel command line argument ip has been removed as it is incompatible with the BOOTIF and missing autoconf parameters with dracut. Without this change CoreOS IPA images cannot be booted. Further details can be found in story 2006700.

Other Notes

  • The default libvirt network interface card type has been changed from virtio to e1000 in order to support testing on Bionic. Users should not experience any issues as a result of this, however the bifrost-create-vm-nodes setting test_vm_nic can be used to explicitly choose virtio network interface cards.
