Stemcells for Windows Release Notes

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

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.

  • Fixed startup issue on GCP.
