Scylla Enterprise customers are encouraged to upgrade to Scylla Enterprise 2018.1.1 in coordination with the Scylla support team.

Bug Fixes in this Release (With Open Source Issue Number Where Applicable):

  • Upgrading to latest version of the RHEL kernel causes Scylla to lose access to the RAID 0 data directory. #3437 A detailed notice has been sent to all relevant customers.
  • An upgrade from Scylla 2017.1 to 2018.1 may cause frequent and redundant schema updates.  #3394
  • Multi-DC writes may fail during schema changes. #3393
  • Installing Scylla 2018.1 on an old CentOS kernel results in the following error “systemd[5370]: Failed at step CAPABILITIES spawning /usr/bin/scylla: Invalid argument”. In Scylla 2018.1.1 the dependency on kernels later than kernel-3.10.0-514.el7 is explicitly added to Scylla Enterprise package spec, making Scylla installations on older kernels impossible. #3176

Known Issues

Scylla Enterprise 2018.1.1 was not validated on IBM POWER8 architecture. If you are using 2018.1. on Power, please wait for future notices on upgrade availability. In the meantime, you should explicitly install Scylla Enterprise 2018.1.0, not 2018.1.
