New Features

  • The 2.32 microverison adds support for virtual device role
    tagging. Device role tagging is an answer to the question 'Which
    device is which?' from inside the guest. When booting an instance,
    an optional arbitrary 'tag' parameter can be set on virtual network
    interfaces and/or block device mappings. This tag is exposed to the
    instance through the metadata API and on the config drive. Each
    tagged virtual network interface is listed along with information
    about the virtual hardware, such as bus type (ex: PCI), bus address
    (ex: 0000:00:02.0), and MAC address. For tagged block devices, the
    exposed hardware metadata includes the bus (ex: SCSI), bus address
    (ex: 1:0:2:0) and serial number.

    In the client, device tagging is exposed with the 'tag' key in the
    --block-device and --nic boot arguments.

Known Issues

  • While not an issue with the client itself, it should be noted that
    if a tagged network interface or volume is detached from a guest,
    its metadata will continue to appear in the config drive, even after
    instance reboot.

Upgrade Notes

  • Support for microversion 2.31 which fixes a bug in the os-console-
    auth-tokens API

  • novaclient.v2.client.Client raises an exception in case of direct
    usage instead of warning message. novaclient.client.Client is a
    primary interface to initialize the python client for Nova.

Deprecation Notes

  • The following CLIs and python API bindings are now deprecated for

    • nova baremetal-node-list

    • nova baremetal-node-show

    • nova baremetal-interface-list

    These will be removed in the first major python-novaclient release
    after the Nova 15.0.0 Ocata release. Use python-ironicclient or
    python-openstackclient for CLI and python-ironicclient or
    openstacksdk for python API bindings.
