Known Issues

* All the pike versions 16.0.7 and before use mariadb-server 10.1
  with no minor version frozen. The latest version, 10.1.31, has
  presented problems with the state transfer for multi-node
  environments when the variable "galera_wsrep_sst_method" is set to
  "xtrabackup-v2" (the default value). This causes a new cluster to
  fail, or an existing cluster to be unable to transfer state when a
  node is rebooted.

  To work around this issue, the recommendation is to set the
  following overrides in "/etc/openstack_deploy/user_variables.yml" to
  ensure that the last known good version of MariaDB is used.

  From 16.0.8 onwards, these values are set as defaults and will be
  updated from time to time after verifying that the new versions
  work. As such, setting these overrides is not required for 16.0.8

     # Use these values for Ubuntu
     galera_repo_url: https://downloads.mariadb.com/MariaDB/mariadb-10.1.30/repo/ubuntu
     galera_client_repo_url:  "{{ galera_repo_url }}"

     # Use these overrides for CentOS/RHEL:
     galera_repo_url: https://downloads.mariadb.com/MariaDB/mariadb-10.1.30/yum/centos7-amd64/
     galera_client_repo_url:  "{{ galera_repo_url }}"

     # Use these values for SuSE
     galera_repo_url: https://downloads.mariadb.com/MariaDB/mariadb-10.1.30/yum/opensuse42-amd64
     galera_client_repo_url:  "{{ galera_repo_url }}"

  The problem has been registered upstream and progresson the issue
  can be followed there: https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-15254

* For all pike releases up to 16.0.7 when executing the os-nova-
  install.yml playbook the "nova-novncproxy" and "nova-
  spicehtml5proxy" services will fail. The workaround to resolve this
  issue is to restart the services.

     cd /opt/rpc-openstack/openstack-ansible/playbooks
     # start the service again
     # replace nova-novncproxy with nova-spicehtml5proxy when appropriate
     ansible nova_console -m service -a 'name=nova-novncproxy state=restarted'
     # set the appropriate facts to prevent the playbook trying
     # to reload it again when the playbook is run again
     ansible nova_console -m ini_file -a 'dest=/etc/ansible/facts.d/openstack_ansible.fact section=nova option=need_service_restart value=False'

  This issue has been resolved in the 16.0.8 release.
