Known Issues

CloudCenter has the following known issues:

  • When an application running a public CentOS image on AWS is terminated, the volume attached to the instance is not cleaned up. To work around this issue, add the volume size in the Root Disk field (Deployments page) depending on the image and cloud (see Manage Instance Types > Root Disk Size).

  • When you View ACL Resource Details for an Extension resource, the API returns the delete permission if the user has administrative permission for it. However, the Update ACL Resource Details API does not support the delete permission for Extensions. To work around remove the delete permission from the response of View ACL Resource Details API, before using it in the Update ACL Resource Details API.

Resolved Issues

The following issues were resolved/addressed in CloudCenter

  • Issue: Managed Disk are not supported for Azure Gov Cloud and resulted in deployment failures (Managed Disk are supported for Azure Gov Cloud from CloudCenter 4.8.1 and later releases). 
    Resolution: Azure Gov cloud does not support managed disks. A fix included in CloudCenter ensures that only unmanaged disks are used when configuring CloudCenter for Azure Gov Clouds.

  • Issue: The latest suffix in the image path no longer works in CloudCenter 4.8.1. 
    Resolution: CloudCenter includes a fix to ensure that this feature works as designed when using the latest suffix in the image path.

  • Issue: The ipamDealloc script was not being called and it did not contain some parameters when a VM fails deployment. These parameters are required to deprovision the VM. See Callout Scripts for additional context.
    Resolution: The CloudCenter platform re-injects the variables and the output from the IPAM script to the IPAM dealloc script in CloudCenter and this feature functions as designed. 

  • Issue: Some users automatically sign in using SSO and may only have email addresses. The owner component used in the VMs page issues a JS error when trying to access these accounts using the first and last name. 
    Resolution: CloudCenter includes a fix to address this JS error and the VM page loads as designed.

  • Issue: If a user has exceeded the budget limit, the system still allows this user to attach a storage disk to a running deployment.
    Resolution: Effective CloudCenter, the Actions Library Attach Volumes action is prevented if a user on a Budget Bundle plan user has exceeded the budget limit quota. 

  • Issue: When the user deploys a job, the cloud cost is not deducted from the user credit if the user is on a budget bundle plan. 
    Resolution: Effective CloudCenter, the cloud cost will be deducted from the user credit for the on a budget bundle plan.

  • Issue: If a user has a small balance on the budget credit and the hourly cost of the current deployment exceeds this balance, then the current deployment is allowed to proceed. 
    Resolution: Effective CloudCenter, if any deployment results in the budget credit being depleted beyond the hourly cost required, then the CloudCenter platform will not allow that deployment to proceed.

  • Issue: When upgrading to CloudCenter 4.8.1, the upgrade errored out for a customer as the Node ID was duplicated and as a result the unique index could not be created for this resource.
    ResolutionCloudCenter includes a fix to remove the file that caused this error and include another file that drops the Node ID index check, if it exists.

  • Issue: When using Azure RM on Linux, AgentLite fails to install if using password authentication.
    ResolutionCloudCenter includes a fix to correct inject the password into the agent installation script.
