Ussuri Series (10.0.0 - 10.1.x) Release Notes


Bug Fixes

  • 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 error state, when a new introspection is requested, the state is now appropriately set to starting.


Bug Fixes

  • Fixes database migrations with SQLAlchemy 1.3.20.


Bug Fixes

  • Fixes the issue that IPv6 link local addresses are ignored during interface validation which fails introspection.

  • Fixes AttributeError: 'Node' object has no attribute 'uuid' when trying to introspect an active node that is not currently in the cache.

  • No longer aborts the whole process if one periodic task fails.

  • Fixes the node identification logic to enable a user to list the redfish_address label for driver_info field values for identification of a machine using the [DEFAULT]ipmi_address_fields configuration option. Previously the host would just not be matched as the full URL would be evaluated instead of what the URL may resolve to.

  • 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 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.

  • No longer tries to set local_gb to -1 if the matched root device has size of zero.


New Features

  • Added the capability to define a scope for the inspection process. Previously, all introspection rules were applied when inspecting any node. There was no mechanism to apply only a selected set of rules. This change introduces a scope field to introspection rules. If a scope is set on an introspection rule, it will only apply to nodes that have a matching inspection_scope property. If not set, it will apply to all nodes.

  • Added physnet_cidr_map processing plugin, the plugin uses the IP address of interfaces returned during inspection and set the port physical_network via lookup from a CIDR to physical network mapping in config option [port_physnet]/cidr_map.

Upgrade Notes

  • The python-ironicclient package has been removed as a dependency in favor of openstacksdk. Third party modules and plugins will require an update if they previously invoked ironicclient.

Other Notes

  • The devstack plugin for ironic-inspector has been changed to utilize pre-built ironic-python-agent images based on Centos8 instead of legacy CoreOS based images.

  • Added base class (BasePhysnetHook) for plugins that assign a physical network to ports.
