Updates announcements and testing
@stormi sounds good. I was guessing that 2019 might do the job. Tempted to use 2022 on a fresh installation and not use the "old" 2019. (Thanks!)
@stormi Installed on my testlab, no issues
The security update is now live. Thank you everyone for the prompt feedback in this short timeframe!
There are at least two blocking issues with this update candidate, so we'll retain it until they are fixed:
- HTTP 403 errors on port 443. Easily reproduced: just load XCP-ng's web page over HTTPS, most images and scripts don't load. We debugged it and reported it to the XAPI project: https://github.com/xapi-project/xen-api/issues/4517
I am using my own self signed certificate on my servers and did not notice the page looking any different, all pictures and text are there.
I do notice the "deploy xoa" script is not working. The buttons seems to be non-functional and do nothing when clicked.
All other buttons and links are functional.
On a larger screen the alignment of the page content is different (topics and pictures side by side in the old page, but in a single colomn in the new page, just like it is with the old page on smaller windows).
Another thing I think is cosmetical but annoying:
when not typing https explicitly in the browser bar (so using http) I get an "403 forbidden" message instead of being forwarded to https
Edit: browser is firefox version 91.0.2 64 bits on windows 10
@stormi Nice work and the joint effort by the community for tests gets better every time . Keep up the good work . Updated my (semi production) three host homelab and it works - as usual. Now it is time to tear down my playlab for some 10G testing .
Hi @stormi is there any easy way to rollback the September updates??? I'm guessing not but I have a strange issue which I think coincides with my last reboot after applying the updates so want to confirm or eliminate as the cause.
@jmccoy555 Have a look at
yum history. You should find the update listed and be able to rollback.
Another way is to use
yum downgrade package-1version-release package2-version-releaseon every package involved in the update (list found in
Note (for you or anyone coming here later): rollback/downgrade is not officially supported, because it's not tested, and it is not always possible to ensure that it really brings the exact previous state. You wouldn't rollback a XAPI update that modified the structure of the XAPI db, for example. However for many packages it's safe to attempt it. The September update, that only contains xen packages IIRC, is one of the updates that should be easy and safe to revert.
@stormi thanks as always. If I do find the issue I'll let you know..... if I break everything then I'll just get a
It appears that the rollback worked, but doesn't appear to have an impact on my issue, which is good news in a way.
