Added iptables rules to storage nodes on all CloudBoot compute resources to block access to Port 8080 from all sources except for a storage network and localhost.


Fixed an issue when you could not enable NVMe as a storage device for Xen-based CloudBoot compute resources from Control Panel UI.


Upgrade CloudBoot Packages

  • Create a backup of the /tftpboot directory in case the storage packages rollback is needed.

  • Power off Windows virtual servers before proceeding to the following procedures.

To upgrade the OnApp Storage packages, follow the next procedure. 

  1. Upgrade the repo:

    CP_host# rpm -Uvh http://rpm.repo.onapp.com/repo/onapp-repo-6.0.noarch.rpm
  2. Update the onapp-store-install package:

    # yum update onapp-store-install
  3. Update the following packages:

    # yum update onapp-ramdisk-tools
    # yum update onapp-ramdisk-centos6-xen
    # yum update onapp-ramdisk-centos6-kvm
    # yum update onapp-ramdisk-centos7-xen
    # yum update onapp-ramdisk-centos7-kvm
    # yum update onapp-ramdisk-centos7-default

    After the packages installation, go to the Control Panel's Settings menu > Configuration and click the Save Configuration button.

  4. Run the script:

    CP_host# /onapp/onapp-store-install/onapp-store-install.sh

    Be aware that the disk-less nodes password is the root password for the CloudBoot compute resources. By default it is blank.

    When run in the interactive mode, enter the required information.

To upgrade CloudBoot backup servers, refer to the Upgrade Guide. The "Simple Reboot" and "Migrate and Reboot" options are available.
