Caveats

This section includes open and resolved caveats for this release.

Open Caveats

The following is a list of open caveats in Release 18.2.5.

Orchestration

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

  • Ops dashboard algorithm for health nodes is currently crashing the node server.

Control Plane

  • 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.

Resolved Caveats

The following is a list of resolved caveats in Release 18.2.5.

PPS

  • Unable to edit or change recordingsToKeep value after creating orignal Series Recording.

  • Unsigned long issue in get API.

  • Do not use non-zero offset in query for affected items.

  • PPS producer sets catalogItem states in wrong order.
