IBM SmartCloud Provisioning 2.1.0 Fixpack 1 has been released at the end of November.
This fixpack adds support for zLinux as managed-to platform and include a few enhancements in the network segregation space, image management, ldap management
A few more details about enhancements:
- you can now use the "Resetting connection" button even if you have images provisioned on that hypervisor (of course the hypervisor should be in maintenance mode in the Workload Deployer). This allows you for example to discover newly added networks in your hypervisor without the need to get rid of deployed images.
- more statuses have been added to describe the High Scale Low Touch compatibility in virtual Image Library and messages have been improved so that you can easily understand on which hypervisor the image can run
- you can now deploy virtual system patterns on zLinux platform
- you can use Image Construction and Composition Tool to extend zLinux images
The fixpack can be installed as an update on top of your existing IBM SmartCloud Provisioning 2.1 installation or as a fresh new installation.
