Version: 3.8.x.x LTS

Release notes


Only use LTS21 releases (3.8.x) in combination with nevisProxy LTS21 (4.x).

If you use nevisProxy from LTS19 (3.x), use nevisAdmin LTS19 (3.7.x) instead.

Do not upgrade nevisAdmin 3 to 3.8.x if you cannot upgrade all nevisProxy instances to at least release 4.0.

Known issues

Since JDK version 1.8.0_322, the Glassfish container of nevisAdmin may stop responding to incoming requests after a few minutes. The reason for this is an error during the SSL handshake with certain browsers. If you are facing this issue, you may have to disable an algorithm in the file of the JDK.

Where this file is located depends on your operating system. Example: /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.8.0/lib/security/

Search for the configuration of jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms in that file, and add RSASSA-PSS to disable the problematic algorithm. The configuration looks as follows:

jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, MD5, SHA1 jdkCA & usage TLSServer, \
RSA keySize < 1024, DSA keySize < 1024, EC keySize < 224, \
include jdk.disabled.namedCurves, RSASSA-PSS

General upgrade instructions

After installing the nevisAdmin RPM, or upgrading the admin appliance, run the following command to ensure that nevisAdmin is redeployed:

nevisadmin redeploy

Release 3.8.5 has fixed a bug where symlinks were missing after upgrading RPMs. However, old versions are still affected.

Proceed as follows if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 3.8.5. The example is for nevisAgent, do the same for nevisAdmin:

## install new version
rpm -i nevisagent-<new_version>-1.noarch.rpm

## check which versions are installed
rpm -qa nevisagent

## remove previous version
rpm -e nevisagent-<old_version>-1.noarch --noscripts
