Wallaby Series Release Notes


New Features

  • The scripts tripleo-mount-image and tripleo-unmount-image will mount the contents of an overcloud image file using qemu-nbd, making it available for chroot, or other read/write image operations. The scripts handle partition image (overcloud-full.qcow2) as well as the whole-disk image (overcloud-hardened-uefi-full.qcow2) with its multiple LVM volume mount points.


Deprecation Notes

  • The DeployArtifactURL(s) server is no longer makes any use of Swift when using built-in scripts to upload artifacts. The old upload-swift-artifacts file is now a symlink pointed to the updated upload-artifacts script. While the file has changed, the API remains the same. The symlink will ensure that legacy automation remains functional while moving over to the new script. The symlink will be removed in a future release.

Other Notes

  • Removed skopeo based container image uploader. This has been deprecated since stein and does not work with our current registry implementation.



Bug Fixes

  • The qemu user on the host gets created using uid/gid 107. Certificates on the host, but also the vhost-user sockets created by ovs use this uid/gid. With the move to TCIB images the default kolla ids were reverted and the previous overwrite dropped. This make e.g. the qemu processes to fail to use the libvirt-vnc bind mounted certificates. This change brings back the previous overwrite of the qemu user uid/gid.
