Interactive Cloud OS 15.10 released

Interactive Cloud OS 15.10 gives you a one node OpenStack Juno installation ready to run in less than 10 minutes. This includes booting from CD-ROM, formatting the hard disk, installing the Linux OS and configuring OpenStack.

This is a maintenance release to update the packages of the previous release 15.3 to latest kernel and security patches and to fix this nasty bug causing the mysql service not to start if setting the required init-connect in its configuration file.

If you’re already running 15.3 or 14.11 you do not need to reinstall 15.10. Just do a zypper up by yourself and apply the hotfix for the mysql service.

If you’re doing linux system updates for Interactive Cloud OS 15.3 and 14.11 (as it is recommended) with zypper up, after September, 26th OpenStack fails to start.

To fix this, we’ve provided a small hotfix to patch the mysql service. To install the hotfix, just login on your Interactive Cloud OS node via console or ssh and run the next two commands:

/bin/bash hotfix.sh
