Changes since v3.1.0
- Fixed a bug that crashed the installation script during a fresh install.
- Updated the flexVDI desktop client to v3.1.2
This releases fixes a regression error introduced in v3.1.1 that made live migration impossible. With this release, live migration is again operative.
Apparently, the OCFS2 kmod we provide for CentOS 7 kernels of the 957 release is not compatible with revisions 27.2 and later. To solve this problem we have published a second release of this kmod, that is compatible with all current revisions of this kernel release. However, we have detected an error in the PREUN scriptlet of the previous RPM package that makes it impossible to remove it, with the following error message:
Error in PREUN scriptlet in rpm package kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k957-1.5.0-1.el7.x86_64
In order to correctly remove it, run the following commands:
# rpm -ql kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k957-1.5.0-1.el7.x86_64 | grep ‘\.ko$’ > /tmp/modules.txt
# yum remove –setopt=tsflags=noscripts kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k957-1.5.0-1.el7.x86_64
# cat /tmp/modules.txt | /usr/sbin/weak-modules –remove-modules
# rm /tmp/modules.txt
And finally, after almost 2 years of hard work, flexVDI v3.1 comes to life. It is a minor release update, but comes with a ton of new features and improvements under the hood:
Check your Customer Portal‘s account for flexVDI Installer 3.1 downloads, and flexVDI Downloads page for anything else. Also, do not forget the flexVDI 3.1 documentation to read about how to install a new flexVDI 3.1. platform, or upgrade your old one.
This is a bug fix release, with the following updates:
The kmod-ocfs2-flexvdi-k957 package has been released, so now you can upgrade your kernel to the new 3.10.0-957 release that came with RHEL / CentOS 7.6. Also, the flexvdi metapackage has been updated so that the new 3.0-3 release does not conflict with that kernel version.
