There are no new features in this release.

Bug Fixes

The following bug fixes have been applied in the 4.6.1 release:

  • Solidfire cinder storage driver updated to properly lock the creation of cache volumes to avoid duplicate volume errors.
  • Glance image sync between contoller nodes updated to ensure launching virtual machines doesn’t result in a checksum verification error.
  • Dashboard will no longer pass a boot device attribute to nova on volume attach to allow alternate disk drivers, like (virtio-scsi) to function properly.
  • Downloadable capacity reports now report total sockets and total cores correctly.
  • VPP will now handle CIDR notation in allowed_address_pairs correctly. This fixes a problem where new instances get stuck in “paused” status and will not restart after a compute host reboot even though a port exists for the vitual machine.
  • VPP multicore CPU support can now be disabled manually if needed.
