LATEST VERSION: 2.0 - RELEASE NOTES

Redis for PCF Release Notes

Page last updated:

v2.0.1

Release Date: February 12, 2019

Breaking Change: Dedicated VMs are absent from Redis for PCF v2.0. As of Redis for PCF v1.11, the on-demand service is at feature parity with the dedicated-VM service. Dedicated VMs are marked as deprecated in Redis for PCF v1.14. Pivotal recommends that you migrate to the on-demand service plan or back up data before upgrading to Redis for PCF v2.0 to prevent data loss in Redis deployments used as persistent storage. For information about migrating to on-demand service plans, see Migrating from dedicated-vm service plans to on-demand service plans in the Pivotal Support knowledge base.

Warning: If you are upgrading from Redis for PCF v1.14.3 or earlier, you must run the upgrade-all-service-instances errand after upgrading. Failure to do so causes compatibility issues with runtime CredHub. For how to upgrade, see Upgrade to Redis for PCF v2.0.

Security Fixes

Features

New features and changes in this release:

  • Dedicated-VM support is removed, see the Breaking Change above. To install or upgrade the tile, operators must acknowledge the deletion of dedicated-VMs using a checkbox.

  • The Redis on-demand service broker now binds apps to a service instance using BOSH DNS. Therefore, service bindings return the DNS address instead of the IP address. To use BOSH DNS with existing bindings you must rebind your apps to on-demand service instances.

  • Redis for PCF uses open source Redis v5.0.2, which includes a fix for a critical issue for users that rely on streams. For more information about Redis v5.0.2, see the Redis 5.0 release notes.

  • On-demand Redis supports secure manifests, which avoids plaintext secrets in manifests by passing these to the ODB to store in BOSH CredHub.

Known Issues

This release has the following issues:

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

  • The When Changed option for errands has unexpected behavior. Do not select this choice as an errand run rule. For more information about this unexpected behavior, see Errand Run Rules.
