Known Issues

  • In some cases upgrade of POA to version 5.4.10 may require manual operations.

    Read the Knowledgebase article #115663 for details before launching update to POA 5.4.10 and apply solutions if they are applicable.

  • Installation of APS 1.0 / 1.1 applications which have configuration scripts is not possible.

    Due to the issue POA-77789 SaaS SC may treat output of a configuration script for any such application as having structured output. Since structured output is not supported for APS 1.0 / 1.1 corresponding tasks will fail.

    No workaround exists.

  • The update should not be installed to PACI customers

    Due to the issue CCU-5890 all the Virtual Servers become updated in PACI IM database on one backup restoration in accordance with it's configuration. Virtual Servers parameters does not change on Hardware Node in this case.

  • Deployment of new pemui service on UI role (container scenario) fails on all pre-5.4.10 builds.
