v2.3.4

Release Date: August 31, 2020

Resolved Issues

This release has the following fix:

  • Rotating the Services TLS CA certificate no longer causes app downtime: In Redis for PCF v2.2.11 and earlier and Redis for Pivotal Platform v2.3.3 and earlier, following the Rotating the Services TLS CA and Its Leaf Certificates procedure can cause downtime for apps bound to the Redis service. This issue no longer occurs.

Known Issues

This release has the following issue:

  • Service creation can fail when using an external UAA: An issue with the Redis on-demand service broker and TLS verification means that service creation might fail on the TLS handshake. This has been observed as the upgrade-all-service-instances errand failing, particularly when a separate internal load balancer is present.
