Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Public Cloud 12

An update that has two recommended fixes can now be installed.


This update for azure-li-services contains the following fixes:

  • Bump version: 1.2.3 to 1.2.4

  • Reference commit for SUSE maintenance This submission creates a reference to bsc#1157041

  • Reference commit for SUSE maintenance This submission creates a reference to bsc#1157040

  • Bump version: 1.2.2 to 1.2.3

  • Right name for vli sp2 folder

  • Add folder for SLES15 SP2 VLI images

  • Fixed VLI package list for sle15 cpp48 does not exist on sle15, instead the cpp package by its name provides is used. On sle15 this resolved to cpp7. This is related to Issue #186

  • Bump version: 1.2.1 to 1.2.2

  • Added Microsoft requested packages to VLI images This Fixes #186

  • Add retry loop to setup sbd device There is no deterministic way to know when the iSCSI device is ready to be processed by sbd. Thus the calls to setup the sbd device has been placed into a retry loop that runs max 3 times with a 2sec wait period in between. This Fixes #188

  • Add directory for SLES15-SP2

  • Saptune setup As pointed before, saptune supersedes sapconf. This is the right path to setup saptune. Update image descriptions not to install sapconf. This Fixes #185

  • Update LI image versions For the refresh of the images in the SUSE namespace the version number has been increased

  • Bump version: 1.2.0 to 1.2.1

  • Right sequence saptune

One of the issues is that `saptune` is a different tool that supersedes `sapconf`. Then the `saptune daemon restart` command will always overwrite the profile with `saptune`. Two different tools that can't be mixed. Only one should be used. In case of SLES (not SLES for SAP), the sequence should be For SLES 12 ``` tuned-adm profile sap-hana systemctl enable --now sapconf.service ``` and for SLES15 ``` tuned-adm profile sapconf systemctl enable --now sapconf.service ``` For SLES for SAP, the sequence is the same for 12 and 15: ``` saptune daemon start saptune solution apply HANA ``` This Fixes #172
  • Bump version: 1.1.39 to 1.2.0

  • Change the setup of the login shell The login shell was setup based on assumption regarding other user attributes set. This way caused some negative side effects which lets us change the behavior. This patch does the following * Adds a new attribute named: loginshell * If loginshell is present the value for loginshell will be used, if not the default /sbin/nologin applies * All implicit assumptions for setting up the login shell got deleted

This Fixes #178
  • sbd device to wait for udev to finish This Fixes #179

  • Bump version: 1.1.38 to 1.1.39

  • Consolidate all image descriptions in git Instead of maintaining image descriptions in obs we want to maintain them in git. With this change only a service and multibuild configuration applies in obs but the data to build the image will live in git. This allows for real development and review regarding changes to the kiwi image descriptions.

  • Restart iscsi subsystem after device discovery Only after restart of the iscsi subsystem the device nodes from a previous device discovery gets created properly. This Fixes #170

  • Bump version: 1.1.37 to 1.1.38

  • Added more logging to the process Add a log file /var/log/azure-li-services.log which adds logging information from the service process. Usually error log information is present on the systemd level but for checking the process, it's calls and potential further information it's also useful to have a processing log file. The log file will be created on the host and gets also copied to the config lun in the same way as the systemd workload log

  • Bump version: 1.1.36 to 1.1.37

  • Delete ineffective startup.nsh code startup.nsh is read by the firmware in an early boot phase. It doesn't make sense to write that file as part of the boot services because it's too late in the process. startup.nsh if required needs to be provided by the image itself

  • Extend storage service dependencies The storage service can be used for remote storage like NFS storage to be attached to the machine. This requires the network to be online. Having the network only configured is not enough it must also be online. Thus the storage service unit is extended to wait for the

  • Bump version: 1.1.35 to 1.1.36

  • Fixed network setup for bonding on vlan vlan network definitions that uses bonding etherdevices were missing a switch to correctly assign the ip configuration This Fixes #164

  • Bump version: 1.1.34 to 1.1.35

  • Apply saptune startup sequence suggested by $MS Implementing startup sequence as suggested in SAP Note 1275776. This Fixes #149

  • Log command calls on the console Implements a simple logging facility for the Command classes and write the commands called to the console. This will lead to more detailed information about the command calls in the systemd status information

  • Load yaml in safe mode The default yaml loader is unsafe, thus we should switch to the safe_load method. For details see:

  • Bump version: 1.1.33 to 1.1.34

  • Start saptune daemon after applying profile For some reason the saptune daemon needs to restart if a profile has been set through the tuned-adm profile command. This Fixes #149

  • Revert fix for service order of saptune daemon It has turned out that the simple change in order did not solve the problem. In fact the daemon needs to be restarted on profile setup

  • Allow ssh access with shell Allow access through ssh without shadow hash and with shell. Fixes #151

  • Bump version: 1.1.32 to 1.1.33

  • Fix service order on startup of saptune daemon The tuned profile must be applied prior to the start of the saptune daemon. This Fixes #149

  • Bump version: 1.1.31 to 1.1.32

  • Fixed travis badge link

  • Mount LUN in sync mode Per request from Microsoft the location that holds the config file and is also used for the status flag and log should be mounted with the sync option. This Fixes #144

  • Activate SAP Hana profile via tuned-adm Check for the presence of the sap-hana profile and switch to sapconf if not found. Activate the selected profile via the tuned-adm control command. This Fixes #142
