Victoria Series Release Notes


New Features

  • Support for Dell EMC PowerMax backend has been added.

  • The new manila::keystone::authtoken::service_type parameter has been added to configure the service_type parameter in authtoken middleware.


New Features

  • Add mysql_enable_ndb parameter to select mysql storage engine.

  • A new class has been introduced (“manila::image::glance”) to allow configuration parameters necessary for the usage of glanceclient within Manila’s service instance module. See Launchpad bug 1741425 for more details.

  • The new manila::cron::db_purge class has been added. This class can be used to set up cron job to purge soft-deleted records from database.

Deprecation Notes

  • The parameter ‘manila::backend::glusternative::glusterfs_native_path_to_private_key’ has been deprecated and replaced with ‘manila::backend::glusternative::glusterfs_path_to_private_key’. The older option will be removed in a future release.

  • The parameter ‘manila::backend::netapp::netapp_root_volume_name’ has been deprecated and replaced by ‘manila::backend::netapp::netapp_root_volume’. The older option will be removed in a future release.

  • The parameter ‘manila::share::netapp::netapp_root_volume_name’ has been deprecated and replaced by ‘manila::share::netapp::netapp_root_volume’. The older option will be removed in a future release.

  • The parameter ‘manila::backend::cephfs::cephfs_enable_snapshots’ has been deprecated. Manila’s CephFS driver has changed the default behavior in the Victoria cycle to always support snapshots, because they are fully supported in Ceph Nautilus, the minimum version of Ceph supported by Manila. Since the cephfs_enable_snapshots config option will be removed in a future release, we recommend that you stop relying on it. Manila’s snapshots can be disabled by virtue of share type extra specs if desired.
