Issues Resolved In This Hotfix
This hotfix resolves the following issues:
- When creating a Storage Repository (SR) or a Virtual Disk (VDI), predefined XML entities (for example &, <, >, “, ‘) entered into the Name and Description fields, are written directly into the SR metadata. Any subsequent actions such as creating an SR or a VDI will fail with an error message, as the XML parser fails to parse metadata if it contains predefined XML entities.
- If there is a failure or a change in the number of paths to storage, attempts to create or destroy a VDI on an LVM-based SR may fail and will display the following error message: Error in Metadata Volume Operation on SR. The VDI will be created, but will lack a Name or Description.
- If multipath is active, on some storage arrays an error may occur when reading the Metadata Volume during an SR attach and display the following error message: Error in Metadata Volume Operation on SR.
- Storage may take several minutes to become available when using Dell PowerVault MD32xxi Storage Arrays with LVMoiSCSI
- Xapi frequently hangs pool slaves due to exceeding the number of sessions on the Pool Master.
- An SR may fail to connect when the XenServer host is booted with one failed iSCSI path when using Hitachi or Compellent storage arrays.
- XenServer may not discover all of the available LUNS when using the wildcard IQN. This occurs when using Compellent storage arrays via iSCSI.
- Improvements to the XenCenter Update functionality; customers are correctly notified in XenCenter when new XenServer Tools are available.
In addition, this hotfix includes the following previously released hotfixes.
