Xena Series Release Notes

3.12.0

New Features

  • The VirtualMedia.insert_media call now supports credentials for the image URI.

Bug Fixes

3.11.0

New Features

  • Adds root property to Sushy resources to link to main Sushy object. Empty for Sushy root itself.

Upgrade Notes

  • “Inserted” and “WriteProtected” optional attributes are no longer present in the InsertMedia API call payload when default values {“Inserted”: True, “WriteProtected”: True} are specified by the consumer (e.g. Ironic) and PATCH method of configuring virtual media is not used. Behaviour is unchanged if PATCH method is used.

Bug Fixes

  • Removing “Inserted” and “WriteProtected” parameters from the Redfish VirtualMedia::insert_media() API call payload when default values {“Inserted”: True, “WriteProtected”: True} are set and PATCH method is not used. Those parameters are optional as per Redfish schema 2021.1. Some BMCs (e.g. SuperMicro X11/X12 platforms) treat these fields as read-only and setting them causes vMedia insert failures. These attributes should default to True on the BMC side. Some BMCs using PATCH method of configuring virtual media (e.g. Lenovo SD530) still require “Inserted” attribute, so only changing this for non-PATCH methods of configuring virtual media such as InsertMedia action.

  • Fixes OEM resource attribute parsing for OEM resources with required fields. Before the fix an error such as “The attribute <attribute name> is missing from the resource <resource path>” occurred.

3.10.0

New Features

  • Adds Drive.volumes property for list of volumes that drive is part of.

Bug Fixes

  • Removes the requirement from Context to be present when requesting a subscription, some BMCs do not report Context when the subscription is created with empty string and would cause MissingAttributeError.

  • Fixes Processor.sub_processors for “‘Processor’ object has no attribute ‘conn’” error.

3.9.0

New Features

  • Adds support for the Redfish EventService resource. EventService is responsible for managing event subscriptions and generates the events sent to subscribers.

3.8.0

New Features

  • Add support for caching Redfish Attribute Registries. In particular, cache the BIOS Attribute Registry and provide a function to return it if it matches the AttributeRegistry field in System BIOS.

Bug Fixes

  • Adds a fallback for inserting and ejecting virtual media using the PATCH HTTP request instead of the explicit action URIs. The fallback is required for Lenovo ThinkSystem machines (i.e. SD530, ..) that only implement the PATCH method.
