Train Series (9.0.0 - 9.2.x) Release Notes¶
Fixes an issue where a failed inspection due to a transient failure can prevent retry attempts to inspect to be perceived as a failure. If a prior inspection fails and is in
errorstate, when a new introspection is requested, the state is now appropriately set to
Fixes the issue that IPv6 link local addresses are ignored during interface validation which fails introspection.
Fixes database migrations with SQLAlchemy 1.3.20.
No longer tries to set
local_gbto -1 if the matched root device has size of zero.
Fixes accessing API endpoints with trailing slashes. Now they’re treated the same way as without slashes, although the latter remain canonical URLs.
No longer aborts the whole process if one periodic task fails.
No longer uses introspection delay for nodes with
manage_boot==False(i.e. boot is managed by ironic). It is useless and may actually break introspection if a node boots before it gets whitelisted in the PXE filter.
The introspection start API is now synchronous when
manage_boot==False. This means that any failures will be propagated to ironic, preventing it from powering a node on and booting it without the PXE filter updated.
Fixes an issue during manual inspection of active nodes where the node uuid was not passed back to the inspector when it tried to identify a matching port.
No longer tries to power off nodes after introspection if
Introspection now respects the
force_persistent_boot_deviceparameter in a node’s
Fixes an issue happening during manual inspection of active nodes where the code attempts to delete or update ports, while the only modification allowed for active nodes is updating the MAC address if the node is in maintenance.
The Train release of Ironic Inspector features support for running separate API and conductor services.
Allows splitting the ironic-inspector service into ironic-inspector-api and ironic-inspector-conductor which coordinate via tooz and its underlying backend. A new configuration option
[DEFAULT]standaloneis introduced to enable this feature. The configuration defaults to True, and ironic-inspector runs as a single service, which is compatible with the old behavior. When set to False,
ironic-inspector-api-wsgiis used to start the API service, and
ironic-inspector-conductoris used to start the conductor service. For ironic-inspector running in non-standalone mode, the user needs to set the new configuration option
[coordination]backend_url, which specifies the backend used for coordination.
Updates the default Ironic API version to 1.56, which is the most recent version in the Stein series Bare Metal release (12.1.0).
Fixes introspection of active nodes that are not in the lookup cache, see story 2006233.
Adds the capability for introspection data to be posted to the API when a baremetal node is in
rescuestates. This feature may be useful for data center operators who wish to update introspection data periodically.
To enable this feature, set
True. When this is set, the value of
[processing]power_offis overridden for nodes in
Adds support to enroll node with IPv6 BMC address. Introduces a configuration option
[discovery]enabled_bmc_address_versionto specify the order of preferred IP version of the BMC address.
The deprecated options from the
os_endpoint_typehave been removed. Please use keystoneauth options instead.
The deprecation configuration options
[swift]section have been removed.
The configuration option
[swift]max_retriesis deprecated. It has been doing nothing for a few releases already.
No longer fails introspection if memory or CPU information is not provided in the inventory. These are no longer required for scheduling, introspection should not require them either.
A new option
enable_mdnsallows to enable publishing the baremetal introspection API endpoint via mDNS as specified in the API SIG guideline.
Adds support to reapply with provided unprocessed introspection data. The introspection data is supplied in the body of POST request to
/v1/introspection/<node_id>/data/unprocessed. The introspection data will also be saved to storage backend.
The deprecated SSL configuration options
[DEFAULT]ssl_key_pathwere removed, please use configuration options from
The deprecated configuration option
Fixes insufficient input filtering when looking up a node by information from the introspection data. It could potentially allow SQL injections via the
/v1/continueAPI endpoint. See story 2005678 for details.
Fixes an issue when extra_hardware plugin failed to save extra hardware information to Swift, the collected information is not processed and consumed.
Fixes an issue while mapping port InfiniBand MAC address to EthernetOverInfiniBand MAC. Prior to this fix, it will fail to map and raise an exception.
