Subject RE: [VOTE] Apache Cloudstack 4.9.0 RC1
Date Mon, 11 Jul 2016 18:33:10 GMT
Hey Will,

I was referring to the need to add:



to when upgrading.

Asking admins to add this manually won’t give the impression of a ‘well-packaged’ product.
 And I suspect will end up like the manually encrypting vmware passwords step, which was required
for one upgrade, and now clients constantly ask us if they need to repeat the step, because
its carried forward to every upgrade note.

Kind regards,

Paul Angus

Hi Paul,
Can you review the discussion here to see if it clears anything up:

Can you help me understand what you are expecting the functionality to be and what you are

Is it not possible to add the additional entries into when CloudStack is upgrading
rather than manually? If it is possible, then manually intervention is a -1 in my book.
Sure it's not a big fix required - but it's still required for CloudStack to work in a slick
manner.  We're trying to improve the user experience.

Kind regards,

My vote +1 (binding)

Tests are passed on a virtual topology of servers  (CS over CS)
(1mgr+2nodes+1nfs) :

1/ Fresh install of 4.9.0RC1 (adv net) on Ubuntu 14.04.4 + KVM + NFS : OK Some standard tests
with success (create vm, migration, HA, create networks, create user, create ssh key, destroy
vm, register template, create snapshot, restore snapshot, create template, ip association,
ip release, static nat, firewall rule) Some tests with cloudstack ansible module with sucess
too (create network, register templates, create vm, ip, firewall rule)

2/ Test upgrade from 4.7.1 to 4.9.0RC1 : OK with the same remarks than Wido (need to add JDBC
driver type in

3/ Tests of all localizations of Web UI of 4.9RC1 : Localization works well except Spanish:
the Web UI won't display due of 2 localization strings with a escaped quote (from Transifex)
'label.number.of.system.vms': 'Número de VM\\'s del Systema',
'label.vm.state': 'Estado de VM\\'s',
Fixed in the PR1583

Perhaps add in the Release notes this 2 issues (jdbc type & spanish l10n)

Thanks to the RM.
