StarWind VSAN for vSphere OVF version 20181210, Version V8, build 12658 (13 December 2018)

  • Linux Kernel update.
  • Fixed StarWindVSA.service startup output.
  • Fixed checking available underlying storage capacity during an HA device creation/extension

Synchronous replication

  • Fixed the issue with incorrect processing of storage hardware failures (introduced in build 12393). Before, in build 12393, disk storage failures on an HA node were sometimes left unprocessed. After the hardware issue was resolved and the HA node restarted, no correct full sync process was done, leading to the risk of data corruption. Updating is strongly recommended for systems running StarWind VSAN for vSphere V8 build 12393 and later!

StarWind Management Console

  • Added ACL and CHAP functionalities.
