VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs [Windows] v2.11 Release Notes

Page last updated:

This topic contains release notes for VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs [Windows] v2.11.

Because VMware uses the Percona Distribution for MySQL, expect a time lag between Oracle releasing a MySQL patch and VMware releasing TAS for VMs [Windows] containing that patch.

Warning: Windows stemcells v2019.44 and later include a version of tar that is incompatible with winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and earlier. For more information, see Windows Stemcell v2019.44 is Incompatible with winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and Earlier in Known Issues.

Before you install the tile, refer to the Windows Stemcell Compatibility Matrix.

There are no new features in this release of TAS for VMs [Windows].

Breaking Changes

There are no breaking changes in this release of TAS for VMs [Windows].

Known Issues

See the following TAS for VMs [Windows] v2.11 known issues:

Upgrades Fail When the Stemcell Does Not Change

If you upgrade to a version of TAS for VMs [Windows] that uses the same stemcell, TAS for VMs [Windows] can fail to create containers, causing the deployment to fail. If there are stemcell changes or if the Microsoft base layer changes, this error is unlikely to occur.

For more information, see Failure to create containers when upgrading with shared Microsoft base image in the VMware Tanzu Knowledge Base.

Smoke Tests Fail when Isolation Segment in Foundation

The Smoke Test errand runs extra, failing tests when TAS for VMs [Windows] is deployed with Isolation Segment. They are “Compute isolation disabled” and “Application Workflow Linux Applications”.

To work around this issue, disable Smoke Tests. For more information, see Windows Tile smoke-tests fails for isolation segment segments in the VMware Tanzu Knowledge Base.

Windows Stemcell v2019.44 is Incompatible with winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and Earlier

Windows stemcells v2019.44 and later include a newer version of tar that is incompatible with winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and earlier. TAS for VMs [Windows] deployments that use Windows stemcells v2019.44 and later cannot untar winfs2019-release v2.33.1 and earlier. Compatible Windows stemcells for this winfs2019-release include v2019.0 through v2019.43.
