nevisAppliance 2.202211.1019 - 16.11.2022

Highlights

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Nevis Cluster 2.202211.1019 Rolling Release.

Announcement

The Rolling Release is still Rocky-Linux-8 based. It contains additional experimental SELinux policies for NEVIS components. The OS and Nevis components are prepared to be run in SELinux enforcing mode. Although the initial setting is permissive mode, you can use the e option in the nevisAppliance menu, to switch into enforcing mode. This mode uses SELinux policies for all Nevis components, except nevisDp (Dataporter). During installation, or applying the update images, the machine initiates an additional reboot to apply the SELinux contexts. This is expected behavior of the system.

This means that you need additional knowledge on how to work with an SELinux system. We support you while moving towards this direction.

nevisAppliance 2.202208.1005 - 17.08.2022

Highlights

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Nevis Cluster 2.202208.1005 Rolling Release.

Announcement

In this Rolling Release, we switch the base OS from Centos-Stream-8 to Rocky-Linux-8 to receive better CVE reporting. With this, we are also able to react faster and provide you an even more secure nevisAppliance. Also with this release, we added experimental SELinux support. The OS and Nevis components are prepared to be run in SELinux enforcing mode. Although the initial setting is permissive mode, you can use the e option in the nevisAppliance menu, to switch into enforcing mode. This mode uses SELinux policies for the major Nevis components, that is nevisProxy, nevisAuth, nevisIdm, nevisLogrend, nevisCred, and nevisKeybox. During installation, or applying the update images, the machine initiates an additional reboot to apply the SELinux contexts. This is expected behavior of the system.

This means that you need additional knowledge on how to work with an SELinux system. We support you while moving towards this direction.

The naming of the provided downloadable files for setting up and maintaining the nevisAppliance is changed according to the below scheme to show the relation to nevisAppliance:

This is the second Rolling Release that is Centos Stream 8 based, and it is a full replacement of the November 2021 Rolling Release 2.202111.948.

We have improved the upgrade process and with this, also Centos 7 based nevisAppliances can be smoothly upgraded without re-allocation of new machines. Just update with our update-nevis.sh script, and provide the corresponding OS and NEVIS images.

We crafted this release using additional packages to help you having a smooth and easy upgrade of existing LTS 2019 or LTS 2021 based nevisAppliances, as well as the current Rolling Release based ones with just minimal effort.

We recommend you make yourself familiar with the changes the base OS (Centos Stream 8) comes with compared to Centos 7, which was the former OS of the nevisAppliance.

To enhance security on the nevisAppliance Rolling Release, it comes with SELinux in disabled mode state, which we enhance in upcoming releases using improved policy files and running it in enforcing mode.

nevisAppliance 2.202111.948 - 17.11.2021

Highlights

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Nevis Cluster 2.202111.948 Rolling Release.

Announcement

Centos 7, the base Operating System used so far on the nevisAppliance, reached EOL. nevisAppliance has a new Operating System, Centos Stream 8.

This is the first Rolling Release that is Centos Stream 8 based to provide you the best support and latest patches on the successor of Centos 7.

We crafted this release using additional packages to help you having a smooth and easy upgrade of existing LTS 2019 based nevisAppliances, as well as the current Rolling Release based ones with just minimal effort.

info

This release is a major update. It needs additional effort to preserve the existing configurations from the previous Centos 7 based nevisAppliance.

  1. Start a fresh installation using the provided ISO boot image, and install the image files of your choice. Do not upgrade or mix existing Centos 7 based installations with the new images. If you apply the new Rolling Release nevisAppliance images to a previous (earlier than August 2021 RR) you end up with a stuck GRUB bootloader during reboot.
  2. For NEVIS components, you can find the existing configuration in /var/opt/<component>. Apply them on newly allocated machines/VMs, and consider dependencies of /var/opt/<component> in other files as well.
  3. Then go through the component Release Notes and Migration Guides, and make the necessary configuration and setup changes for your instances. If you have a nevisAdmin 4 based setup, you can deploy your configuration to the new allocated machines replacing the Centos 7 based nevisAppliances.

To enhance security on the nevisAppliance Rolling Release, it comes in its first release with SELinux in disabled mode state which we enhance in upcoming releases using proper policy files and running it in enforcing mode.

If you run into any issues during the upgrade, we are here to support you.

nevisAppliance 2.202105.934 - 15.06.2021

Highlights

We are pleased to present the Nevis Cluster 2.202105.934 Rolling Release Update. This nevisAppliance release fixes the memory leak that occurred when using OpenOffice with adnooprint as the nevisIDM printing facility. If you use the nevisIDM printing functionality on the extended nevisAppliance image, we recommend upgrading to this latest version.

Currently, the only supported printing facility is adnooprint together with LibreOffice. To give a clear plot, we removed the oooserver package in this release. Migration To use the new printing tool, perform the following steps:

  1. Adjust the OPENOFFICE_HOME variable in the /var/opt/adnooprint/<instance>/conf/env.conf file as shown in the next code snippet:
...
OPENOFFICE_HOME=/usr/lib64/libreoffice
...
  1. The /tmp/.config folder can prevent LibreOffice from starting (ending in a TIMEOUT). Therefore, remove an existing /tmp/.config folder completely after installing the nevisAppliance images. Use the following command: rm -Rf /tmp/.config

Removed

Support for adnwildfly and adnjboss as deployment containers has been removed in this release. This also pertains to the two J2EE deployment containers.

nevisAppliance 2.202008.740 - 15.10.2020

Issue with automatic start of NEVIS components

Who is affected?

  • Customers that used nevisAdmin 3 (or inst createcommands) to set up instances.
  • NOT affected: nevisAdmin 4 customers.

What is the problem?

  • Since the last nevisAppliance 2.202008.729 RR release (August 2020), some NEVIS components were not automatically started after the nevisAppliance reboot.
  • Older RR releases are not affected.

Installation steps

  1. Make sure that all your NEVIS standalone instances are enabled at systemd-level.
  • If this is not the case, enable them using the command systemctl enable.
  1. Install the hot fix release 2.202008.740.
  2. After reboot, check that all instances are running.

Background

The August 2020 RR release provided an improved nevisAppliance startup process, including a better systemdintegration. From this release on, dependencies in systemd files are configured such that custom scripts are completed before NEVIS components are started. In the release notes of the August release, this change was marked as "FIXED: The issue regarding the boot order and the configuration of custom init.d scripts.".

This change accidentally removed the automatic startup of container-based setups, such as instances that are started as part of adnglassfish, adnwildfly or adnjboss. Also, standalone instances disabled in systemd were not started anymore after reboot.

With this hotfix release, the startup of container-based instances has been re-introduced to keep backward compatibility. To start standalone instances (such as nevisProxy, nevisAgent, nevisAuth, nevisLogrend), enable them in systemd first as per the above installation steps.

Deprecated

Support of adnwildfly as deployment container is deprecated and will be removed in the November 2020 release. Plan the migration of your adnwildfly based instances to a standalone container deployment until this date.

Upgraded NEVIS components

  • FIXED: The issue with the missing neviswf command on PATH. The command is now available.
  • UPGRADED: The CentOS operating system has been upgraded to the latest available versions.

Upgrade notes

  • This version of the nevisAppliance ships with the nevisProxy version for RHEL7, with the latest Mod Security and OpenSSL 1.1. Carefully read the nevisProxy release notes for details and backwards compatibility. There are known incompatibilities with old Mod Security rules and CA trust chains which are not created with the proper CA:TRUE flag. You can check old versions of nevisAdmin 3 used to create CA certificates without that flag on the nevisAdmin 3 host if you are affected and need to rotate all certificates signed by this CA:
openssl x509 -text -in /var/opt/nevisadmin/default/nevisadmin/repository/cert/ca_certificate.pem \
| grep "CA:TRUE"
# OK: CA:TRUE
# NOK: (no output)

If there is no output, this CA is no longer readable by nevisProxy and all certificates must be rotated. See the nevisAdmin 3 release notes and reference guide for detailed instructions.

  • Carefully read the nevisIDM, nevisAuth and nevisAdmin 4 release notes for additional backward incompatibilities.

Resolved issues

  • UPGRADED: The Linux kernel and system libraries to the latest available versions.
  • CHANGED: The value for kernel.pid_max parameter in /etc/sysctl.conf was increased to 65534. This increases the ability to work on systems with lots of resources and to perform under heavy load. Otherwise, errors like -bash: fork: Cannot allocate memory were displayed. It addresses an issue known to RedHat and described at `http://access.redhat.com/solutions/1434943. (NEVIS-5791, NEVISAPPLIANCE-430)
  • FIXED: OpenJDK support for nevisAuth and nevisIDM when rendering images or documents, like captchas. Previously, errors like "libfreetype.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" occurred on the Base and DMZ nevisAppliance when using OpenJDK. This was fixed by ensuring the fontconfig packages are always installed. (NEVISAPPLIANCE-425)
