Upgrade Instructions

Click here for instructions on upgrading to QuantaStor v5.8.0.

Release Highlights

Disk Management

  • Major update to the the Physical Disk > Disk Copy feature, which allows raw data copying from a physical disk to another disk, ZFS-based volume or file on a share, or from a ZFS-based volume to a physical disk, volume or share. [ QSTOR-7320 ]

Storage Pool Management

  • Adds a new "Auto Repair" feature has been implemented. [ QSTOR-7276 ]

  • Added support for mixed SSD sizes for Ceph Journal creation when the Create OSD Advanced option 'Allow Mixed size pairing of SSD' is checked. Note that the smallest of the two SSD's will be used as the capacity limit for the resulting mirrored Journal Group. [ QSTOR-7048 ]
  • Fixed an issue with the Ceph OSD create when using an odd number of SSDs and the Mirror Journal checkbox is checked. Now there is an error dialog that appears before any actions are performed at the task level. [ QSTOR-7042 ]
  • Fixes RBD information collection logic to limit the use of 'rbd du' due to slow collection of used capacity [ QSTOR-7118 ]

High Availability Failover

  • Added further checks to the HA Failover Group Create to block creation of HA pools on unsupported SATA+SAS Interposer configurations. [ QSTOR-6707 ]
  • Added further protections to Storage System Modify when renaming the server. This prevents unsupported server names that do not meet DNS FQDN standards. [ QSTOR-6734 ]
  • Fixed an issue where a single Bad or Failing drive in a Storage Pool could cause an Automatic Pool HA Failover to occur. This was a regression introduced in QS 5.5.0. Only a loss of disks that would affect pool availability (such as loss of JBOD connectivity from the active node) will cause the automatic failover trigger. [ QSTOR-6998 ]
  • Fixed an issue with changing the name of a Storage System which is a member of a Site Cluster. [ QSTOR-1733 ]
  • Fixed an issue with launching the SIte Cluster Add Node Dialog soon after the site cluster has been created. [ QSTOR-7000 ]
  • Fixed some minor Web UI items and corner cases with Site Clusters. [ QSTOR-6695 ]

  • Updated IBM Cloud S3 endpoints. [ QSTOR-6993 ]
  • Updated the s3 cloud provider locations to match the AWS endpoint documentation. Merging logic for updating the database with the 'qs_cloud_provider.conf' file needed to be fixed. The cloudProvider and cloudProviderLocation tables are now being updated properly on service start-up. [ QSTOR-6964 ]

Network Interfaces

Remote Replication, Snapshots and Backup Policies

  • Added Backup Policy reports to the QS CLI with the backup-job-list and backup-job-get commands. [ QSTOR-6943 ]

  • Fixed an issue in the Create Backup Policy dialog with specifying the Domain for SMB user credentials. [ QSTOR-7045 ]
  • Fixed bug preventing the usage of special characters in the password field for Backup Policies. Added server side validation to the username field to disallow non-smb supported special characters. Added server-side help/error messaging to inform the user to not use unsupported characters. [ QSTOR-4272 ]
  • The SMB username and password are no longer logged for Backup Policies. Instead, authentication data is contained in a temporary .auth file so the password is not presented out to the qs_service.log file. [ QSTOR-4272 ]
  • Fixed some issues with creating a SMB based backup policy from the qs CLI [ QSTOR-6947 ]
  • Fixed the task failure message for deleting snapshots that are managed by a replication schedule. [ QSTOR-4489 ]

Service Core

  • Added the ability to set a specific IP address or FQDN to be used when contacting a remote node. This can be done by echoing/writing the IP Address or FQDN into a file located at '/var/opt/osnexus/quantastor/SYSTEM_ID.gpp' where SYSTEM_ID is the remote nodes Storage System ID. This provides the ability to override the grid communication port if the nodes were disconnected from each other and their IP addresses or hostnames are changed while unable to communicate. [ QSTOR-7012 ]
