Release 1.10.2.

Version: 1.10.2.2 Build: 28d8ab9f
Release: 17 November 2022

This is a patch release is intended only for use with Access Control Plus (ACP) AuthZ policy enforcement, not Gerrit. The following fixes are included.

  • NV-9046 - Properly enable M+ privilege.

  • NV-9056 - properly implement default AuthZ policy.

For deployment requirements, see the notes for the major release.

Version: 1.10.2.1 Build: 1086e0da
Release: 3 March 2022

Git MultiSite 1.10.2 provides fixes for two issues found in the previous release. For deployment requirements, see the notes for the major release.

  • NV-8617 - Fixed an issue where content delivery could be mistakenly removed, requiring a time-consuming workaround that included loss of repository access for a short time and required a restart of all replicators in the containing replication group.

  • NV-8650 - Added a check that the pack files used to update the repository do not contain any corruption. Due to the graph nature of Git, sometimes these pack files can contain objects that the repository already has. If the repository is corrupt, then the pack files can be corrupt, and the update to the repository will fail.

    The code that does this check in GitMS 1.10.1 is flawed and may only catch the corruption on the nodes remote from the initial push (originating node). The repository on the remote nodes will go Local Read-only (LRO). We are fixing this flaw.

    The new code included in this release will ensure that the pack file makes health checks before creating the update proposal and will reject the update request at that time. This will prevent a slip into the LRO state. However, the real cause may very well be that the repository is already corrupt. You should run a “git fsck --full --strict” to validate that the repository is healthy (and it was the pack file(s) that were corrupt). Run that command on all nodes in the replica family and repair the other sites with an uncorrupt version. If all replicas are corrupt, then please contact WANdisco support.

Software versions required or supported

The tested versions are listed below, we support these and higher patch levels. While we make every attempt to continue to support older Linux patch levels, it is sometimes not possible. In addition, because we do not test every patch level we may not know about an incompatibility that exists. For absolute compatibility it is best to choose the tested patch level.

  • CentOS 7.6

    • Contact WANdisco Support for more information about running on this platform.

  • JDK 8

    • Important: JDK 7 is no longer supported. You must now run JDK 8.

We don’t support GitMS on 32-bit architecture because this would impose serious limits on scalability. You must deploy on a 64-bit OS.

System user and group assignment for GitMS

During install you are asked which user and group you want to run GitMS as. The primary group of the user account that GitMS will be run as should ALWAYS be used as the group that GitMS should be run as or else there will be a mix of directory entries (directories, files) that contain either theAccount:theGroup or theAccount:thePrimaryGroup since the running process is most likely to run as theAccount:thePrimaryGroup and not theAccount:theGroup.

Required software versions:

  • C-Git - 2.19.1 (WANdisco version)

Other software versions:

  • JGit version installed with GitMS - 5.1.13-WDv1

Browser compatibility:

Release 1.9.4.1

Version: 1.9.4.1 Build e10f07f0
Release: 22 October 2018

New

  • NV-6796 - New Git repos will always be deployed in GRO with the final state transitioning it out of GRO.

  • NV-6844 - GitMS will now always log either an ACCEPTED or DENIED on all AuthZ requests.

  • NV-6873 - Updated to use C language Git version 2.17.1.

  • NV-6919 - A clarification message has been added to the on Consistency Check UI when overlapping runs cause inconclusive/mismatched results.

  • NV-6924 - CRITICAL: AuthZ file is now parsed on product startup (instead of waiting until 1st change) thereby providing proper checking (it had been denying every request until the AuthZ file changed.

  • NV-6927 - The configurable max time to wait for Consistency Check to complete can now be enabled. See the Consistency check timeouts section for more information.

  • NV-6953 - Upgrade to use JGit version **.

  • NV-6963 - Enable alternate path to git gc command used during replicated garbage collection. See Command line JGit GC for more information.

  • NV-6976 - GitMS can poll GerritMS for account information and import information into GitMS.

  • NV-6990 - Downgraded all AuthZ requests to INFO level to prevent Dashboard spamming.

  • NV-6998 - GitMS installation now depends on the "net-tools" package. A future release will eliminate this dependency.

Fixed

  • NV-6471 - Prevented "comment size overflow" for JGit.

  • NV-6647 - Prevented PANIC during consecutive sync start/sync stops in a rare case.

  • NV-6709 - Properly remove the "git-multisite-hook" package when removing "git-multisite".

  • NV-6812 - PANIC prevented if adding a new repository to an replication group that the local node is not a member of.

Known Issues

  • NV-6988 - There is a required change to the log configuration file in this release. If you are upgrading to GitMS 1.9.4, and the logging configuration was modified in the previous version, then after upgrade has completed you will see the following warning:

    IMPORTANT: For gitms release 1.9.4, please ensure that you add the following to the log4j.properties file before restarting gitms. This additional log configuration stops spamming of the gitms.log file:
    
    # CryptoFactory
    log4j.logger.com.wandisco.security.crypto=INFO
    # jsonpath
    log4j.logger.com.jayway.jsonpath=INFO

    You need to add this property to to the log4j.properties file before restarting GitMS.

  • NV-6984 - Logging configuration warnings during upgrade
    There are changes to logging configuration files so if you are upgrading GitMS you will need to copy the new template configuration files into place after making sure that any local customizations have been preserved (in most cases there will be no local customizations).

    If you see the following message during upgrade then you need to determine if any changes were made to the configuration file. The message may be buried in installer output, the Linux "script" command can be used to help with searching. These changes then need to be added to the new configuration file and it copied into place.

    WARNING: Custom changes to logging configuration have been detected. The previous logging configuration
    has been left in place. Please merge the changes from the latest version into your local configuration

    It is possible that changes were not made as our code does have the potential for false positives. This is something we will fix in a future release.

Please turn off thread dumps unless asked to enable them by WANdisco support. To do this edit the application.properties file and set threaddump.enabled=false.

Release 1.9.3.3

Version: 1.9.3.3 Build d3b85284
Release: 2nd March 2018

New

  • NV-6650 - The talkback.sh script now supports invocation via the full path.

  • NV-6682 - It is now checked during upgrade that GITMS_UMASK is defined in main.conf, if not then upgrade will fail.

    Check GITMS_UMASK before upgrade

    Before upgrading you must check that GITMS_UMASK is set in the main.conf file on all machines. E.g.

    GITMS_UMASK=0022

    The value is normally 0000, 0002 or 0022, it is what you would want to use for a 'umask'. Before choosing a number, consider the current repository permissions and the desired level of security.

    Note: The account that GitMS runs as must be the account that owns every file system object in the repositories (including any directory in which the repositories reside).

  • NV-6712 - GFR RPM will now install into a symlinked installation directory.

  • NV-6752, NV-6783 - An autosftp script has been added to help upload talkbacks to the WANdisco support site. For more information see Uploading talkback files.

Fixed

  • NV-5948 - Eliminated duplicate warning messages on the dashboard for certain failed repository creation operations.

  • NV-6420 - The GitMS AuthZ parser now runs only once per AuthZ file update.

  • NV-6755 - Incorrect dashboard messages during repository moves from one replication group to another have been eliminated.

  • NV-6771, NV-6781, NV-6782 - Fixed the repository deployment process to eliminate race conditions. We advise that consistency checks are run (after upgrade) once per repository to find any damage caused by this bug. Please contact WANdisco support if any issues are found.

  • NV-6798, NV-6799 - Fixed many bugs impacting the performance of UI.

Known Issues

Please turn off thread dumps unless asked to enable them by WANdisco support. To do this edit the application.properties file and set threaddump.enabled=false.
If using one of the newer RHEL/CentOS 7.x platforms, you will need to run yum install net-tools before running the installer. The installation will fail without this.
  • NV-6848 - If you are upgrading using the tarball installer then "WRITE" permissions may need to temporarily be added to any files being upgraded. If a permission error is displayed then add the 'w'-bit (e.g. chmod a+w file1 file2 …​) and re-run the installation.

Software versions required or supported

The tested versions are listed below, we support these and higher patch levels:

  • RHEL 6.6

    • Red Hat 6 requires the RHEL Server Optional repository to be enabled in Red Hat Network.

  • CentOS 6.6

    • See Red Hat note above.

  • RHEL 7.1

  • CentOS 7.1

  • SUSE 11.3

    • Contact WANdisco Support for more information about running on this platform.

  • JDK 7

    • JDK 8 is only tested with CentOS currently but is supported on all platforms.

We don’t support GitMS on 32-bit architecture because this would impose serious limits on scalability. You must deploy on a 64-bit OS.

During install you are asked which user and group you want to run GitMS as. On Ubuntu this change does not apply system-wide, so some files have the default group set. This is not a problem, but something to consider when deciding on your OS.
