3 March 2021
The cloudstack software that manages CI virtual machines will be upgraded on Tuesday 16 March (from v4.11 to v4.13): the CI portal will likely be unavailable on that day, and in particular creating new virtual machines or projects will be impossible. However, existing virtual machines and Jenkins instances will still be available as usual. If you need new virtual machines, please create them before or wait until the end of the upgrade!
The upgrade will make ISO image uploading easier and will allow virtual machines to be created with “custom” offers, by choosing manually and independently the number of cores and the amount of RAM.
As a side note, thanks to many efforts performed by our users, a notable amount of memory has been freed on the VMware hypervisor: if you were blocked for creating new Mac OS virtual machines, you can now try again.
Thank you for using CI!
