Caveats

This section includes open and resolved caveats for this release.

Open Caveats

The following is a list of open caveats in Release 18.4.6.

Deployer

  • During control plane upgrade, control plane cleanup and Route 53 steering questions should be ignored ('n' should be used).

  • After a control plane upgrade, the exiting monitoring stack could lose node names if the node names are changed due to Active Directory integration requirements. This causes all health checks to report with the changed node names, instead of the defined nomenclature in cDVR deployments.

  • In Deployer Erlangen, post orchestration procedure is required after upgrading the analytics stack and before steering to the new instance. For details, contact Cisco Services.
