Virtualizor 2.7.5 Launched

Hi,

The Virtualizor Team has released Virtualizor 2.7.5
This version has some bug fixes.
The following is a list of changes in this version:

[Task] MySQL bin logs were taking much space after sometime so now it will be reset when the hourly cron will be executed.

[Bugfix] If a vps was suspended due to bandwidth overuse or from slave server, at that time Master was not aware of the status and while syncing the resources the vps status was reset to unsuspended. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] Cloud user was not able to edit the vps of his user. It was giving error regarding storage. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] If Cloud user has unlimited user creation resource, then in the new theme Cloud user was not able to create any user anymore. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] While creating the VPS if VNC is enabled then the VNC Key Map was applied only for KVM vps not for the other virtualization vps. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] In enduser new theme, on OS-Reinstall wizard the images were not aligned properly and the radio buttons were not shown proper in Chrome browser. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] In the last version the bug was introduce due to which if the virtio was enabled while creating the VPS and ISO was selected to boot from, it was not able to boot from ISO. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] There was a spelling mistake in french language. This is fixed.

Virtualizor supports OpenVZ, Xen, XenServer and Linux-KVM on CentOS and Ubuntu and they all can be managed from the Master. We are adding more features and if you have any suggestions, do let us know. We hope you enjoy this version of Virtualizor.

Virtualizor 2.7.4 Launched

Hi,

The Virtualizor Team has released Virtualizor 2.7.4
This version has some cool new features and some bug fixes.
The following is a list of changes in this version:

1) [Feature] New UI : We have added the option to enable the new UI. There are many improvements and fixes since we first launched the new UI in Beta. An Admin can enable the new UI from the Virtualizor Admin Panel -> Configuration -> Master Settings -> Enable New UI for endusers. The new Enduser UI is now in the Release Candidate stage and we expect it to be fully stable in the next release.

2) Multi Disk provisioning is now possible in Virtualizor for KVM, Xen. However the Hypervisor limits will apply e.g. KVM doesnt allow more than 3 IDE devices for a VM.

3) VM Disk Stats : We have added the support for accumulating disk statistics for KVM, Xen and XenServer VPS. For KVM an hourly cron will be run to accumulate the data to give the most recent statistic available. For Xen and XenServer (including KVM), the data will be collected when the VM is booted via Virtualizor.

4) VM CPU monitoring : We have added the support for CPU monitoring of KVM, Xen and XenServer VPS. Previously it was only available for OpenVZ. The CPU monitoring is still in a beta stage, however it will be very close to the actual usage.

5) [Feature] We added IOPS support for KVM VMs which utilize an LVM storage. Previously it was only available for file based VMs. This feature will work on CentOS 7+ Nodes only.

6) [Feature] We have enabled XenServer VM Backups via FTP and SSH for 64 Bit systems e.g. XenServer 6.5

7) [Feature] Added the option to enable SSL for MySQL connections to the PDNS server. You can enable this while editing or adding a new PDNS server.

8) [Feature] Added the option to delete the Backup for OpenVZ VMs in the enduser panel.

9) [Task] Now the Admin can add an ISO in Virtualizor if they have downloaded the ISO to the /var/virtualizor/iso path. The ISO URL is now optional.

10) [Task] We have added an handler to edit the fstab of a VM if VirtIO is enabled for a VM via the Edit wizard.

11) [Task] Now, the OS template size will be checked on the slave. If it doesnt match the size as per the Master, the OS template will be downloaded again.

12) [Task] For OpenVZ VMs, we have added the support for Internal IPv4 Netmask.

13) [Task] Added check for primary IP while adding an IP or creating a new IP pool.

14) [Task] Improved API : The Data Sync API between nodes has been improved.

15) [Task] Added OSID on OS template page for convenience.

16) [Bugs] Changed the default Xen network interface for CentOS 6+ nodes to eth0 from peth0. This fixes the bandwidth usage calculation of the node.

17) [Bugs] While adding a Slave server, if the Version of the Master and the Slave were not same, there could be a possible partial loss of VM data. This is fixed now as we have added a version check for the Slave server.

18) [Bugs] Previously a Cloud User could delete a subuser even if the user had a VM. This is fixed now.

19) [Bugs] Added a check for Number of Cores while adding or editing a VPS. The number of cores cannot be empty while adding / editing a VPS.

20) [Bugs] The .inf file was not created on OpenVZ nodes for local backups. This is fixed now.

21) [Bugs] The VM Migration wizard did not consider the Overcommit RAM setting. This is fixed now.

22) [Bugs] A Cloud user could create a subuser with the same email. This is fixed now.

23) [Bugs] While creating a Windows template, the WINTOOL LVM was not deleted after the process. This is fixed now.

24) [Bugs] If the Master node is a multivirt of KVM and OpenVZ, while saving Slave Configuration settings for the master like CPU Model, timezone, etc. was not working. This is fixed now.

25) [Bugs] If a Cloud user was allowed to create unlimited subusers by setting “0”, the cloud user would not be able to create any subuser. This is fixed now.

26) [Bugs] In Xen if XL was enabled, the vif name of a VM was not detected correctly. This is fixed now.

Note : We have added an option to “Disable New Theme” in Virtualizor Admin Panel -> Configuration -> Master Settings. This setting is for admins who would like to have the old Enduser theme enabled when we launch the new enduser theme in the next release as stable. Saving the “Disable New Theme” will disable the new theme till the time we support the old theme i.e. 6 months from the date of making the new theme stable.

We would like to thank all users who have helped in improving the enduser UI.

Virtualizor supports OpenVZ, Xen, XenServer and Linux-KVM on CentOS and Ubuntu and they all can be managed from the Master. We are adding more features and if you have any suggestions, do let us know. We hope you enjoy this version of Virtualizor.

Virtualizor 2.7.3 Launched

Hi,

The Virtualizor Team has released Virtualizor 2.7.3
This version has some cool new features and some bug fixes.
The following is a list of changes in this version:

1) [Feature] With this version we would like to announce a new Enduser theme ! It will be in beta for some time and the old theme will be supported for another 6 months from this release.
Our new enduser theme is based on the Single Page Interface concept and uses JSON API calls in Virtualizor to perform actions. For hosting companies this means they need to edit only one HTML file to fully customize the look and feel of this theme into something of their own.

Detailed docs on how to make the new theme will soon be available. We plan to make this new theme stable within a month from now. The new theme is also Mobile Friendly (it uses bootstrap). We will also be porting this to the billing software modules we maintain.

To use the new theme, login to an enduser account and use the following URL to access the new theme :
http(s)://YOUR-HOST-NAME/SESSION/index.php?act=i&w2=1

Here are some screenshots of the new theme :

2) [Feature] In the Admin Panel, the pagination tool has been improved to set the number of results per page.

3) [Feature] For the enduser panel, we have combined the language files into one single language file. Existing languages have also been updated with the single language file structure. Old language files will be deleted when the old enduser theme is disabled in Virtualizor.

4) [Task] Now virtio can be enabled while editing the VPS. (Note : It cannot be disabled once enabled)

5) [Task] In the Admin Panel, we have added pagination wherever possible.

6) [Task] The Enduser API has been improved and will soon have a detailed documentation done.

7) [Task] The Admin API has also been improved.

8) [Task] Improved the UI of various Logs in the Admin Panel.

9) [Task] There were many functions which were not defined in the SDK. This has been improved.

10) [Task] Added multiple action tool on in the Media Group and DNS wizards.

11) [Task] In the Add and Edit VPS wizard, we have changed the text of kb -> KB for Network Speed and Upload speed. This is to avoid confusion as some users assumed it was kilo bits/second. The unit was and is kilo bytes/second.

12) [Task] The ISO download wizard now supports FTP protocol as well i.e. public FTP mirrors can be used for download of an ISO.

13) [BugFix] For XEN HVM VMs with TAP devices, the default bridge was taken as the xenbr0 which resulted in bandwidth miscalculation. This has been fixed to use the bridge name as per the saved configuration.

14) [BugFix] On XenServer the network speed was written wrong in configuration for upload limit. This is fixed now.

15) [BugFix] In the Rebuild VPS wizard when multi virtualization is enabled on the Node, the OS list was showing OS templates of both virtualization software. This is fixed now.

16) [BugFix] Cloud user was not able to create the VPS if multi virtualization was turned on. This is fixed now.

17) [BugFix] Resizing the file system for QCOW2 was failing on some VPS which had been powered off and the filesystem was not clean. This is fixed now.

18) [BugFix] When multi-virtualization was enabled and if the primary storage was OpenVZ, Virtualizor was not able to create the VPS for KVM. This is fixed now.

19) [BugFix] In the Add and Edit VPS wizard, there was a Javascript bug due to which Network Speed and Upload speed was not set correctly if the drop down was used. This is fixed now.

20) [BugFix] If admin had disabled the API credential for endusers, a user would still able to access the API credential wizard with the direct URL. This is fixed now.

21) [BugFix] In the Admin Panel Backup wizard, the logs were not getting cleared if admin clicked on Clear logs. This is fixed now.

22) [BugFix] If multi virtualization is enabled and the Node was booted into a wrong kernel, the warning for the wrong kernel would have “1” at the end. This is fixed now.

23) [BugFix] There was a bug in detecting the size of a QCOW2 file if it had a decimal in the size. This is fixed now.

24) [BugFix] In the edit template wizard when the admin edited a precreated template, disabled fields would show blank values when the form was submitted. This is fixed now.

Virtualizor supports OpenVZ, Xen, XenServer and Linux-KVM on CentOS and Ubuntu and they all can be managed from the Master. We are adding more features and if you have any suggestions, do let us know. We hope you enjoy this version of Virtualizor.

Critical QEMU Vulnerability – VENOM – affects Xen, KVM, VirtualBox, XenServer

What is the VENOM vulnerability?

A new vulnerability, dubbed “VENOM” has been discovered, which exploits the virtual floppy drive code in QEMU. This vulnerability potentially allows an attacker to break out of their VM (guest) and gain privileged access to the Host machine, and its guest VMs.

The official website, which contains more, useful information can be found here: http://venom.crowdstrike.com/

Upstream advisory: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2015-0998.html

What virtualization/hypervisors are affected?

Any hypervisor that uses QEMU – Xen, KVM, VirtualBox and XenServer are amongst those affected by this exploit.

What can I do to resolve the VENOM vulnerability?

If you have a VM (guest) on a host whose technology is affected by this exploit, you should urgently update your virtualization platform for example, for KVM:

yum clean all && yum update qemu-kvm -y

And for others :

yum clean all && yum update -y

Following the update, the guests (virtual machines) need to be powered off and started up again for the update to take effect. Please note that it is not enough to restart the guests because a restarted guest would continue running using the same (old, not updated) QEMU binary.

NOTE : Please make sure you choose the correct kernel to boot.

New OS Templates launched

The Virtualizor team has launched following templates.

CentOS 7.1 (x86_64) – KVM, XEN-HVM and XCP-HVM
Scientific-7.0/7.1 (x86_64) – KVM, XEN-HVM and XCP-HVM
fedora-21 (x86_64) – KVM, XEN-HVM and XCP-HVM
Suse-12.3/13.1 (x86_64/x86_6464) – XCP-HVM

Hi,

The Virtualizor Team has released Virtualizor 2.7.1
This version has some features and some bug fixes.
The following is a list of changes in this version:

[Feature] Added search for the left menu in Admin panel. Admins can now just search easily instead of scrolling the options.

[Feature] Added a setting to delete Users with no VPS. Admins will need to enable this feature.

[Feature] Added a setting to delete OS Templates on slave nodes, if the setting is enabled. This will consume more bandwidth as the templates will be downloded on the slave if a VPS is created / rebuilt.

[Feature] Added the Multi delete options in the List VMs, Users and IP pages.

[Feature] Added Multi VM Suspension and Unsuspension on the List VPS Page.

[Feature] Windows password strength checker has been added. If the template has “windows” in its name, the windows password strength will apply. This is to adhere to the Windows Password scheme in various Windows OS.

[Task] List Users and List IP pages are now showed in table.

[Task] The number of Cloud users will be displayed on the Admin Dashboard.

[Task] Templates which were not there as per Virtualizor but which had the OS Template file in the /var/virtualzor template folders were deleted to save space. We have now added an exception to not delete symlinks.

[Task] All logging will be in one directory now /var/virtualizor/log

[Task] Logs of different VPS, will now be stored seperately. e.g. a VPS rebuild log can be found in /var/virtualizor/log/rebuid/VPSID.log instead of the old /tmp/rebuild.log

[Task] The background scripts Logging has been improved. More details will be logged which can help to debug any error.

[Task] The Windows Template creator tool will now use the new storage code. However only block devices are supported as of now.

[Bugfix] Migration was failing for KVM and Xen VMs. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] If an admin saved the Master Settings the CRON time was removed from the cron file. This is fixed now and was introduced in version 2.6.3. Due to this bug some Master nodes would not have been updated to the latest version. They will need to perform a manual update to get to the latest version : http://www.virtualizor.com/wiki/Immediate_update

[Bugfix] The ISO list was not syncing with the slaves. This is now fixed.

[Bugfix] In Xen with XL the full Pygrub path /usr/bin/pygrub was written to the VPS config file which showed an error while starting the VM. This is fixed and changed to specify only “prygrub”

[Bugfix] The SolusVM WHMCS importer had some bugs which prevented the conversion to Virtualizor. This is now fixed.

[Bugfix] The Node RAM was not showing accuratele with the latest CentOS 7 update. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] On OpenVZ Nodes, unsuspend operation was not performed successfully in some cases. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] MAC address could not be blanked once it was set for an IP. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] OpenVZ Backup/Restore Email was not sent to users. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] If there were individual IPs of a slave (i.e. not in any IP Pool), they were not synced. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] In Xen with XL, soundhw = all caused an issue. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] In Xen with XL the free RAM of the node was not detected properly. This is fixed.

[Bugfix] In KVM, some VMs failed to start with UUID. This is now fixed.
