Subject RE: [ACS 4.3] Release Notes
Date Mon, 27 Jan 2014 09:30:22 GMT
I can see there are some issues with 4.3 release notes  available at

Upgrade instruction says 
For registering template 
Name and description has  systemvm-xenserver-4.2. 
   4.2 should change to 4.3 in all hypervisor
Template url should point to 64 bit templates for all hypervisor
Os types should be OS Type: Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 (64-bit) instead of 32 bit in all hypervisors

Before step 4 we need to perform one more step  for rolling upgrades feature to be more effective

download new system Vm template to all primary storage pool using prepareTemplate API . Wait
till this download is complete

I have done so many upgrades never needed step 10
10. (VMware only) Additional steps are required for each VMware cluster. These steps will
not affect
running guests in the cloud. These steps are required only for clouds using VMware clusters:

With rolling upgrades we can tell to use
$ nohup  cloudstack-sysvmadm -d <IP address> -u cloud -p -s > sysvm.log 2>&1

s option will upgrade only SSVMs and CPVMs.

*	All VRs are still on older version, existing services will continue to be available. MS
cannot send any commands to VR until it is upgraded
*	Selectively upgrade VRs using upgradeRouterTemplate API (zone/pod/cluster/account/domain
*	MS will send command to upgraded VRs and normal functioning resumes
*	For VRs which are not upgraded, services will continue to be available (VR state is same
as before upgrade). VR cannot receive new commands until VR is upgraded.

These changes are applied from all the upgrade versions  in release notes.

Animesh, I will take those filters and modify the CHANGES file, but It will be Sunday.
