Updates to rightscale_volume and rightscale_backup cookbooks from RightScale


#1

Ohai Chefs,

Updates to the following cookbooks have been published today.
rightscale_volume (1.1.0)

  • A nickname attribute is added which defaults to the value given in
    name attribute. This is useful if there are
    multiple resource actions on the same resource and the name needs to be
    unique.
  • The :detach action will not raise an exception if the volume is not
    found.
  • Fixed a bug where the volume was not created from the snapshot
    properly.
  • The exception raised when a volume is deleted on OpenStack where it
    has dependent snapshots is rescued and logged.
  • AWS Provisioned IOPS is supported on volume creation.
  • Removed unused delayed_evaluator cookbook now that the lazy evaluator
    is included in Chef 11.

rightscale_backup (1.1.0)

  • A nickname attribute is added which defaults to the value given in
    name attribute. This is useful if there are
    multiple resource actions on the same resource and the name needs to be
    unique.
  • This cookbook now depends rightscale_volume and uses the
    rightscale_volume resource to restore a backup and
    does not rely on the Backups#restore API call.
  • The filter used to search for backups now includes the cloud_href so
    it only searches for the backups on the
    current cloud.
