Latest CentOS 7 operating system upgrade

CentOS 7 in new installations of BMC Discovery 11.3

New installations of BMC Discovery 11.3 run on CentOS 7. The upgrade to BMC Discovery 11.3 from 11.1 and earlier versions replaces Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 with CentOS 6.

The replacement of earlier OS versions with CentOS 7 ensures continued support for the appliance OS during its lifetime, and provides support for newer hardware where you choose to install on hardware. It also provides SMB 2 support, and the ability to run Apache 2.4.

CentOS is an enterprise-class Linux platform that is derived from and aims to be functionally compatible with its upstream source, RHEL. This compatibility enables BMC to perform the same CentOS testing against the Red Hat 6 and 7 STIGs.

When applying OS upgrades to BMC Discovery 11.3, ensure that you download and apply the correct CentOS operating system upgrade.

Latest CentOS 7 operating system upgrade

The latest BMC Discovery CentOS 7 OS upgrade includes all applicable CentOS updates up to 15 July, 2020

This OSU contains updates to fix the Ghostcat vulnerability (CVE-2020-1938). However, if you upgrade to any version of BMC Discovery earlier than 12.0.0.2, the upgrade will overwrite /usr/tideway/tomcat/conf/server.xml with that included in the upgrade, effectively reverting the change made by this OSU. If you plan to upgrade in the near future, you should either:

  • install the OSU, and then modify the server.xml files described below after the product upgrade
  • postpone the product upgrade until BMC Discovery 12.0.0.2 is available
  • postpone installing this or later OSUs until after the product upgrade

The change in the OSU updates the following files, /usr/tideway/tomcat/conf/server.xml and /usr/local/tomcat/conf/server.xml. The following line is updated:

'<Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" />'

to:

'<Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" address="::1" />'

TKU and OSU release timing

To provide a more predictable release cadence for our customers, BMC will publish the latest TKU and OSU on the first Wednesday of the month.

The OS upgrade supports the installed BMC Discovery (64 bit architecture) virtual appliances on CentOS 7. The following file is available from the BMC Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) site for 64 bit architecture:
