Eucalyptus Cloud 4.4.6 has been released, updating our OS support to allow use of CentOS and RHEL 7.9 in addition to the existing support for 7.x.

This release has some important compatibility and functionality fixes and is recommended for all 4.4.x deployments.

As with version 4.4.5, this release was tested using 2.9.0 qemu packages which should be installed when upgrading from earlier versions.

Some fixes of note in this release are:

  • EC2 instance metadata v2 support
  • EC2 node controller crash when running windows instance

You can find the full list of resolved issues in the release notes.

If upgrading from 4.4.2 or earlier, note that the RPM repository location has changed, updated Eucalyptus and Euca2ools release RPMs should be installed as detailed in the install guide so that the new location is used.
