Subject Re: [VOTE][ACS44]Apache CloudStack 4.4.1 RC 3 in branch 4.4-RC20141014T2316
Date Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:09:28 GMT


Upgraded from 4.3.1 to 4.4.1, following the docs (
it worked and usual VM lifecycle (create, start, stop, reboot etc), networking etc in basic

The issue is that, the upgrade docs ask you to pre-register/install a 4.4.0 template before
we upgrade to 4.4.x which works. But if I upgraded from 4.3.1 using a 4.4.1 template the upgrade
path 4.4.0-4.4.1 fails because in Upgrade440to441 in updateSystemVmTemplates() we are using
hardcoded checksums as the 4.4.1 templates I used from jenkins.b.o had different checksums
which resulted in failure of the DB migration and CloudStack mgmt server got stuck.

To summarize;

- Hardcoded systemvm template names in Upgrade440to441 :: updateSystemVmTemplates
- Harcoded checksums and restricted to 4.4.0 templates in Upgrade440to441; if someone upgrades
from pre-4.4.0 should we allow them to use latest 4.4.1 templates? I understand this is tricky
as 4.4.1 is not released yet should we find a way we can not hardcode this?


Lastly, I tested and found that the previous Cluster settings UI/API blocker issue is not
seen anymore (reported by Geoff and Pierre in previous voting round).
