Yoga Series Release Notes

20.3.0-10

New Features

  • Now this module supports configuration of networking-baremetal in Debian and Ubuntu. Previously it was supported in RHEL/CentOS only.

  • The neutron::agents::ovn_metadata class now supports the following two new parameters.

    • ovsdb_probe_interval parameter to configure [ovn]ovsdb_probe_interval in ovn metadata agent config file.

    • ovsdb_retry_max_interval parameter to configure [ovn]ovsdb_retry_max_interval in ovn metadata agent config file.

Bug Fixes

  • Bug #1987460: Previously the neutron::agents::ml2::mlnx class causes duplicate resources when used with the neutron::agents::dhcp class or the neutron::agents::l3 class. Now it is possible to workaround the error by implementing the following mitigation.

    • Include the neutron::agents::ml2::mlnx class AFTER the neutron::agents::dhcp class or the neutron::agents::l3

    • Set the interface_driver parameter and the dhcp_broadcast_reply parameter consistently.
