Stemcells for Windows Release Notes

This topic includes release notes for Windows stemcells used with Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) Runtime for Windows.

1200.14

Release Date: Febuary 13, 2018

  • [Bug Fix] Fixes issue with OpenSSH 0.0.24
  • For vSphere, you must install the patch manually because it was not available through Windows Update when the patch was initially shipped. In addition, you must manually enable the patch. See Creating a vSphere Stemcell by Hand for information about installing the patch.

1200.13

Release Date: January 17, 2018

1200.3

Release Date: August 22, 2017

  • Agent backs off exponentially when unable to reach the director, moving from 5 seconds to 160 seconds over 6 connection attempts, to reduce the impact on small-footprint BOSH VMs. This resolves BOSH Agent Open Issue #137.
  • BOSH SSH is now supported as a beta feature. Users can enable connecting to a cmd session using the bosh ssh command by running the relevant job from windows-utilities-release.
  • Fixed an issue where jobs were being stopped synchronously rather than concurrently, preventing stop scripts that waited on other stop scripts from ever finishing.
  • Fixed an issue where jobs that failed to start on the first attempt weren’t being retried.
  • Other minor bug fixes and performance improvements.
