  • The Cloud Foundry team has released patched BOSH stemcells 3146.17 and 3232.12 with an upgraded Linux kernel that resolves the aforementioned issues. We recommend that Operators upgrade BOSH stemcell 3146.x versions to 3146.17 OR other versions to 3232.12
  • Upgrade Pivotal Elastic Runtime 1.6.x versions to 1.6.33 or later OR 1.7.x versions to 1.7.11 or later
  • Upgrade Pivotal Ops Manager 1.6.x versions to 1.6.18 or later OR 1.7.x versions to 1.7.9 or later
  • Upgrade Pivotal MySQL to 1.6.13 or later 1.6.x versions OR 1.7.x versions to 1.7.10 or later OR edge versions 1.8.0-edge.8 or later
  • Upgrade Pivotal RabbitMQ 1.5.x versions to 1.5.13 or later OR 1.6.x versions to 1.6.3 or later
  • Upgrade Pivotal Redis 1.4.x versions to 1.4.28 or later OR 1.5.x versions to 1.5.16 or later
  • Upgrade Pivotal Push Notification Service 1.3.x versions to 1.5.3
  • Upgrade PCF Metrics 1.0.x versions to 1.0.9 or later
  • Upgrade PCF Metrics: Log Search 1.x versions to 1.0.0 or later

  • Upgrade Pivotal Single Sign On 1.x versions to 1.15 or later OR 1.1.x versions to 1.1.1 or later

Special Note for 1.7.x Ops Manager Deployments

The 1.7.x release line of Ops Manager includes a new feature that allows tile stemcells to “float”, which will allow Operators to update their Ops Manager deployment once rather than installing all new Services product releases. If you upgrade one Service tile in Ops Manager 1.7.x with the newly released stemcell, all tiles will automatically upgrade. For more information about the floating stemcell feature, refer to this document.
