I am working on Nexenta in my lab, as I need more shared storage suitable to run virtual machines on. As part of that there was an update of the Nexenta Fusion management appliance. Which I quite like working in – a great UI.
I understand that potentially in the future Nexenta will have all the Community users in a notification list for sharing info on new updates. But currently it was an accident that I found an outstanding update (release notes).
You need to visit the Fusion VM console.
Note the version in the top left corner. This is the version we are going to move from.
All that is necessary is to arrow over to Upgrade Fusion option. Once selected it will determine if there is an upgrade or not and display the following message.
You will need to restart the VM after the upgrade is done but you will be prompted for that.
I have no release notes for this update (see below), but, there is a nice change I found. I can now edit the TimeZone when NTP is in use.
So an easy update and we are done – I went from 18.104.22.168 t 22.214.171.124 with no issues. Did not take long.
- 1/5/17 – the release notes have been updated. Also added it above.
