Summary: Updated openstack-packstack packages that fix one security issue, several bugs, and add two enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0 - noarch 3. Description: PackStack is a command-line utility that uses Puppet modules to support rapid deployment of OpenStack on existing servers over an SSH connection. PackStack is suitable for deploying both single node proof-of-concept installations and more complex multi-node installations. It was discovered that the nova.conf configuration generated by PackStack did not correctly set the libvirt_vif_driver configuration option if the Open vSwitch (OVS) monolithic plug-in was not used. This could result in deployments defaulting to having the firewall disabled unless the nova configuration was manually modified after PackStack was started. (CVE-2014-3703) This issue was discovered by Yair Fried of Red Hat. This update also fixes the following bug: * This update fixes a dependency issue between the openstack-cinder-api and openstack-cinder-backup services. The openstack-cinder-backup service is now guaranteed to be started during PackStack installation. (BZ#1075609) In addition, this update adds the following enhancements: * This update enables mysqld performance improvement if users add the following configuration options to the /etc/my.cnf file: innodb_buffer_pool_size = (10-20% of available memory) innodb_flush_method = O_DIRECT innodb_file_per_table These improvements are expected to be the default settings in the next release. (BZ#1078999) * With this update, PackStack now consistently performs the installation of the sos, sos-plugins-openstack, and rhos-collector packages on all hosts. (BZ#1131619) All openstack-packstack users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues and add these enhancements. 4.
