[Xen-users] XCP, Xen Cloud Control System version released!

Greetings all:
Sorry I've been a bit behind schedule, I've just released XCCS version for both XCCS-VA (virtual appliance) and XCCS-SA (standalone) packages!

This is a major upgrade for XCCS-SA, adding a load of new features that debuted in XCCS-VA. For XCCS-VA, this is mostly a bug fix release to to correct the host evacuate and shutdown functions for an apparent XCP 0.5.0 bug.

This release also adds a new feature to the host evacuate function. Any virtual machines that normally can't be migrated (out of date PV drivers for example) and previously were simply shut down when an evacuate was launched now will automatically be restarted on another one of the XCP pool hosts.

As always, Xen Cloud Control System can be downloaded from http://www.xencloudcontrol.com!

Release Notes

Bug fixes:

bug 10272010-1, host-get-vms-which-prevent-evacuation does not work
properly for VMs with out of date PV drivers, causing host-evacuate
and shutdown-host to fail. add check for PV-drivers-up-to-date to
host-evacuate and shutdown-host.

bug 10272010-2, load-balancer fails under certain conditions if the
percentage of free memory on the least memory free host is a single
digit. an incorrect sort in this condition yeilds a negative percent
unbalance. add check to load-balancer for a least free memory
percentage less than 10 and add a leading zero to the percentage so
the sort works correctly.



modify host-evacuate and shutdown-host so that any VMs that are
shut down because they can't be live migrated or their PV drivers are
out of date are automatically restarted on another available pool host.

add blue color code for host disabled to host-info and pool-status.
