LATEST VERSION: 2.1 - RELEASE NOTES

Redis for PCF Release Notes

Page last updated:

Warning: If you are upgrading PCF v2.3 to v2.4, you must run the bosh -d MY-DEPLOYMENT restart redis-on-demand-broker errand after upgrading. Failure to do so causes compatibility issues with runtime CredHub.

v1.14.6

Release Date: May 8, 2019

Features

New features in this release:

  • A new errand is now available to the operator: recreate-all-service-instances. See Post-Deploy Errands.

Security Fixes

This release includes the following security fixes:

  • This release now uses Redis OSS v4.0.14, which contains a few minor fixes backported from v5.0. Detailed release notes for this patch are available on the Redis release page.
  • Updates golang to v1.12.1, which contains a fix for a regression around sync
  • Updates On-Demand Broker to v0.26.1, which contains a fix for the recreate-all-service-instances errand
  • Adds error message and logging when a shared service instance is missing a PID file
  • Updates Service Backups to v18.2, which contains a fix for an issue where up-to-date versions of scp no longer support path .

Resolved Issues

This release fixes the following issues:

  • For PCF v2.4 and later, no metrics emitted from cf-redis-broker reached the metrics Firehose.

  • The fields for AWS Secret Access Key pair required to set up S3 Backups were marked as text and not secret. These have now been updated so your S3 keys are masked. Pivotal recommends that you rotate your S3 credentials to ensure they are safe.

Known Issues

This release has the following issues:

  • The redis-odb service broker listens on port 12345. This is inconsistent with other services.

v1.14.0

Release Date: October 3, 2018

Features

Breaking Change: Redis for PCF v1.14 and later requires a Xenial stemcell. You must manually download and import a new stemcell into the Ops Manager Stemcell Library before deploying Redis for PCF v1.14.0. This might break automation you have set up to update Redis for PCF deployments that used Trusty stemcells. To download the Xenial stemcell from Pivotal Network, go to Stemcells for PCF (Ubuntu Xenial). For instructions on importing the stemcell, see Update Stemcell.

New features and changes in this release:

  • Support for the Log Cache cf CLI plugin, which enables developers to access logs for an on-demand service instance using the command cf tail. For more information, see Access Redis Metrics for On-Demand Service Instances.

  • A new Deprecate Dedicated-VM Plan errand disables service access to the dedicated-VM plan for non-admin app developers. Run this errand to prepare for deprecation of support for dedicated nodes. For more information, see Post-Deploy Errands.

  • In addition to registering the cf-redis-broker with PCF, the Broker Registrar errand now disables service access to the dedicated-VM plan for non-admin app developers. For information, see Post-Deploy Errands.

  • Adds a Delete All Dedicated Instances checkbox to the tile in the Warning - Deprecating Dedicated tab, for operators to remove all dedicated nodes ahead of the upcoming removal of support for dedicated nodes.

    Note: For PCF v2.2, after you select the Delete All Dedicated Instances checkbox and before you click Apply Changes, the Resource Config tab cannot be changed and displays the warning Please review the errors below. You can safely ignore this warning.

  • Adds a Cleanup Metadata if Dedicated-VM Plan Disabled errand that cleans up any metadata in PCF for any dedicated-VM service instances if zero dedicated instances are provisioned. For more information, see Post-Deploy Errands.

  • Redis on-demand instance processes and cf-redis-broker routing processes are now wrapped in the BOSH Process Manager (bpm). For more information about bpm, see bpm in the BOSH documentation.

  • The major stemcell line is now Ubuntu Xenial. See Breaking Change above.

  • Switches to syslog from syslog-migration. This means that the legacy log format is no longer supported and all logs are now RFC5424 compliant.

Known Issues

This release has the following issues:

  • CVE-2018-15759.

  • If more than one of Redis for PCF 1.13.0-1.13.4 and/or 1.14.0-1.14.1 is uploaded at the same time then this can result in an install failure. This can be solved by upgrading to the latest patch of this minor or the next.
