Key Announcements

Potential 7.1 Deployment Failures:

  • Cause: SF 7.1 introduced a more rigorous validation of security settings; in particular, requiring that settings ClusterCredentialType and ServerAuthCredentialType have matching values. However, existing clusters may have been created with ‘x509’ for the ServerAuthCredentialType and ‘none’ for the ClusterCredentialType.
  • Impact: In the case mentioned above, attempting an upgrade to SF71CU1 will cause the upgrade to fail.
  • Workaround: No workaround exists for this issue, as the ClusterCredentialType is immutable. If you are in this situation, please continue using SF70 until the SF71CU2 release becomes available.

For more details, please read the release notes.
