Update Collax V-Bien 6.9.10 and Collax V-Cube, V-Cube+ 6.9.10


Collax V-Update 6.9.10 - New hardware, security, Windows Server 2022

This update extends the wizard for creating a VM with the “Windows Server 2022” template.

For using the console of a Windows Server 2022 via VNC, a new virtual graphics driver is required: “Virtio VGA”. This is automatically adopted by the wizard. The driver is also suitable for other VMs, such as the previous versions of Windows.

As of this update, the Intel E810 network cards with transfer speeds of up to 100 GBit/s are supported. The usage has been certified for all V-products.

This update introduced support for RAID controllers with the LSI SAS3916 chipset. The Broadcom 95xx MegaRAID controller family, which uses this, has been certified for all V products. The controllers now support NVMe in addition to HDD and SSD.

With the controller a change of the management tool from “megacli” to “storcli” became necessary. Please note that this changes the output of the messages of the monitoring (Nagios). With the new check, the temperatures of the controller, the disks and the cache buffering unit (BBU or CacheVault) are now also monitored. If the threshold temperatures are exceeded, the administrator is informed.

In connection with the side channel attacks on processors, security vulnerabilities have also been published for Intel® and AMD processors. This update updates the microcode that closes the gaps.

Further information and details can be found in the Release-Notes of each product.
