For planned improvements and known issues, see Release Notes for Abiquo 3.10.1 

3. Release Notes for Abiquo 3.10.2

3.1. Improvements

Key

Summary

8721

Allow change of disk controller defaults per host plugin. Added properties in format abiquo.pluginmetadata.{HV}.diskControllers, which is a list of comma separated values per plugin, and the default is the first element in the list. Errors in the properties will prevent the plugin from loading. This is an API property that must have the same values in all abiquo.properties files on the platform. The values are not case sensitive and possible disk controllers are SCSI, IDE, VIRTIO

9233

Allow change of compatible and base disk format from host plugin metadata. Added properties in the format abiquo.pluginmetadata.{HV}.compatibleDiskFormatTypes, which is a list of comma separated values per plugin, and abiquo.pluginmetadata.{pluginTypeLowerCase}.baseDiskFormatType, which is a single value per plugin that must be present in the previous list. Errors in the properties will prevent the plugin from loading. These are API properties that must have the same values in all abiquo.properties files on the platform. The values are not case sensitive and possible disk formats are documented in the Template Compatibility Table

9235

Single step for vmdkStreamOptimize to vmdkSparse conversion

 

3.2. Resolved Issues

Key

Summary

9129

User Scopes tab and template scopes tab should be restricted by user scope. If the administrator has a limited scope, they can only manage their own scope. If the administrator has the Allow user to switch enterprise privilege and an unlimited scope (global scope or all enteprises), they can manage all scopes. When editing templates, allow administrator to edit a shared template with Allow user to switch enterprise privilege (with no need for Manage scopes privilege) and to save the template if the administrator scope is greater than or equal to the template scope. However, for both user scopes and templates, administrators with all related privileges but without unlimited scope will only be able to manage their own scope, not lesser scopes

9133

Hyper-V: retrieve hypervisor fails if there are volumes not mapped to a drive letter. Abiquo will now ignore these volumes and log them

9199

Remote console does not work from infrastructure view

9202

Unexpected error when capturing an imported VM that has been VMotioned

9207

Error getting compatible tiers when any datastores on a machine are not assigned to a tier

9214

Scheduled action plan does not take into account if the VM is protected

9219

OpenID: Login process may return error message. For Internet Explorer cookies, in server.xml on Abiquo Tomcat, the <Host> section should contain an <Alias> section with the domain of the web server (where users access the UI). Default Java session timeout was changed to 30 minutes to ensure user delays during OpenID login will not result in errors.

9222

API won't start if there are any action plan schedules with end time in the past and without start times

9223

In Internet Explorer 11, popups that open over other popups are not working properly

9225

Search for Azure ARM templates by ID does not validate ID format, leading to an unexpected error. The template ID format should be {region}/{provider}/{name}/{version}

9226

In Internet Explorer 11, popups are full screen width

9227

Network synchronize button is shown for non-public providers, where synchronization is not appropriate

9238

Not possible to create/edit a VM with a template from another enterprise through the API, even with the correct privileges and scope

9242

Prevent static noVNC tokens

9251

Avoid ''reconfigVM_Task'' without any VirtualMachineConfigSpec change

6. Release Notes for Abiquo 3.10.5

6.1. Features

Key

Summary

Other versions

9441

Allow end user to define the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) in the UI and the API.

  • The user can define the "fqdn" attribute when creating a VM through the API. Before deployment, the user can edit the VM and enter or modify the FQDN through the UI and API.
  • Abiquo checks that the user has entered a valid FQDN
  • Abiquo sets the FQDN in the virtual machine using guest customizations (if properties are set on ESXi) or cloud init (supported hypervisors/templates via metadata)
  • If Abiquo is automatically generating the hostname with guest tools, Abiquo can automatically generate the domain name. For the hostname Abiquo uses the automatically generated hostname, and for the domain, it uses the "dnsSuffix" attribute of the virtual machine networks. If the virtual machine is not connected to any networks, then Abiquo uses the "dnsSuffix" from the VDC's default VLAN. If no "dnsSuffix" is found, then Abiquo sets the 'localdomain' domain name
  • Abiquo does not validate that the cloud init or guest tools process has successfully configured the FQDN in the virtual machine
  • When the user captures a VM with guest tools, Abiquo tries to import the FQDN. If only a hostname is found, Abiquo will automatically add the domain to the hostname

7. Release Notes for Abiquo 3.10.6

7.1. Features

Key

Summary

Other versions

9512

Implement storage allocation rule for load level of hypervisor datastores at the datastore, datastore tier or datacenter level. The most specific rule will be used in each case. Allocation Rules#Storage load level rules and API Changelog v3.10#Abiquo API 3.10.6 Changelog

 

 

7.2. Improvements

Key

Summary

Other versions

9640

Set virtual machine memory reservation. Administrators can set the percentage of swap to set with com.abiquo.esxi.experimental.memory.allocation and if the platform should avoid swap with com.abiquo.esxi.experimental.avoidvmxswap. The defaults are 0 and false respectively

 

9650

Prevent user from accessing a virtual machine before the guest customization applies the password. See Generate a random password at VM deploy. For Windows templates, set the User (API loginUser) to "Administrator". In order to deploy a virtual machine, you must set this attribute if the wait for guest customizations is configured

 

9655

Add a tooltip to the Add template button

 

9658

Allow restriction of the available disk controllers through the user interface. See Display custom list of controllers when adding virtual disk to VM

 

9662

Better manage concurrency errors. Use another HTTP status code and API error to indicate ObjectOptimisticLockingFailureException (StaleObjectStateException). Use Status code 503 and add API Error DB-0 - "Another request has updated this entity. Try again in a few moments"

 

9667

Add VM reference for each alarm in alert email

 

9669

Improve management of virtual machine rollback from lost connection. To avoid odd situations such as an occasional duplicated MAC address, when a deploy generates a bad rollback (for example because the connection to the host is lost), and an orphan VM remains in vCenter, Abiquo will not free the machine. It will wait until the VSM detects the machine and synchronizes it with the real state. This will prevent the user from eliminating the undeployed machine in Abiquo and reusing the MAC address for another machine.

With the same condition, the "restore" button will be disabled: Note that the behavior is different in 3.10.5
