XenSource XenServer - Change History

TKU October 2008

In TKU October we added a new constant sudo_enabled. The command xm list will not be run as sudo unless this flag is set to true, the default value is false.

Please see this link for more information.

TKU February 2009

In TKU February 2009 the patterns for XenSource XenSever was updated with changes to the 'type' attribute for the XenServer.
The 'type' attributes have changed as follows:

  • 'XenSource Server' to 'XenSource XenServer Server'
  • 'XenSource Domain' to 'XenSource XenServer Domain'

In addition to this, the vm_type attribute (created when SI for XenServer domain is created) was changed in from: 'Xen Domain' to 'XenServer Domain'

As of TKU Feb 2009, the pattern also utilizes new features available in Foundation 7.2 and the flag that indicates whether credential elevation is used ('sudo_enabled') has now been moved to the configuration section of the pattern and named: 'priv_execution'.
In addition to this, the Discovery function that runs the code that achieves escalation of privileges is also specified in the configuration block of the pattern.

Finally, the Consolidation method was modified. A new approach is used, which rectifies a bug in the former Unix trigger, and adds support for consolidating Windows guest hosts. For more details, please refer to the relevant page.

TKU May 2009

In TKU May 2009 Xen Source XenServer pattern updated to resolve an issue that could occur on some hosts where an attempt to download '/sys/hypervisor/uuid' file could lead to discovery hanging due to a bug in the Linux kernel of the host. The pattern only attempts to download the file if 'xenstored' process is running.

TKU November 2013

In TKU November 2013 a 'vm_class' attribute is added to Host nodes that are running virtualization software discovered by Atrium Discovery to enable easier reporting in a future version of Atrium Discovery

TKU March 2014

TKU February 2015
