    Unix Improvements

    New Features

    Updates

    • Rewritten H-Sphere Updater
      • Added option to set a list of packages excluded from the update.
      • Added option to skip regeneration of config.xml
      • Provided a more thorough check while adding new physical/logical servers:
        • check on supported Perl version;
        • check if selinux is enabled on the server;
        • check if kernel supports quota
      • If the /hsphere partition or the /hsphere symlink to actual H-Sphere partition is absent, the updater automatically chooses the partition with the largest free space available and creates the /hsphere symlink there. If required, the updater modifies /etc/fstab by adding quota flag to the H-Sphere partition and/or remounts this partition and executes quotacheck.
      • Additional check of logical server configuration. If a newly created physical box doesn't contain any logical servers or service IP (or shared IP on a Web server) is not set on one of the logical servers, the updater will stop on this box.
      • If H-Sphere cluster uses MyDNS service instead of Bind, check/install of the hsphere-bind package is skipped;
      • If any of the checks fails, the updater stops and informs what is required to continue the update.
