Subject [NOTICE] Impending shutdown of download.cloud.com - this may affect your CloudStack installation
Date Tue, 20 Mar 2018 18:44:40 GMT
On April 30, 2018, the domain download.cloud.com will be decommissioned.

THIS MAY AFFECT YOUR CLOUDSTACK INSTALLATION. PLEASE READ FURTHER.

BACKGROUND
download.cloud.com was used to host the seed templates (images) for a
CloudStack installation. This included the system vm templates for releases
prior to 4.10. Around March 2017[1], a new site was established (
download.cloudstack.org) and all the content (templates) was copied over to
the new site. From release 4.10 onwards[2][3], the seed templates are
fetched / downloaded from the new site during an installation of Apache
CloudStack.


To check if your CloudStack installation has a reference to the old site (
download.cloud.com), check your vm_template table:

SELECT url FROM vm_template;

WHO MAY BE AFFECTED
CloudStack operators installing a version of Apache CloudStack prior to
version 4.10 after the shutdown. An already running/functioning CloudStack
cloud will continue to operate with no disruption after the shutdown.
However, operations such as: adding a zone, backup and restore, secondary
storage backup/restore, etc may be affected.

STEPS TO BE TAKEN TO AVOID IMPACT
Update the vm_template table to point to the new location:

UPDATE vm_template SET url = REPLACE(url, 'download.cloud.com', '
download.cloudstack.org');

TRIAL RUN OF THE SHUTDOWN
During the last week of March 2018, download.cloud.com will be taken
temporarily offline. This is to make sure that CloudStack operators who
have not paid attention to this notice but are affected, will pay attention.

This notice will be posted periodically until the shutdown.
