New features

There are no new features in the release of OpenShift API for Data Protection (OADP) 1.2.3.

Resolved issues

The following highlighted issues are resolved in OADP 1.2.3:

Multiple HTTP/2 enabled web servers are vulnerable to a DDoS attack (Rapid Reset Attack)

In previous releases of OADP 1.2, the HTTP/2 protocol was susceptible to a denial of service attack because request cancellation could reset multiple streams quickly. The server had to set up and tear down the streams while not hitting any server-side limit for the maximum number of active streams per connection. This resulted in a denial of service due to server resource consumption. For a list of all OADP issues associated with this CVE, see the following Jira list.

For more information, see CVE-2023-39325 (Rapid Reset Attack).

New features

There are no new features in the release of OpenShift API for Data Protection (OADP) 1.2.2.

Resolved issues

The following highlighted issues are resolved in OADP 1.2.2:

Restic restore partially failed due to a Pod Security standard

In previous releases of OADP 1.2, OpenShift Container Platform 4.14 enforced a pod security admission (PSA) policy that hindered the readiness of pods during a Restic restore process.

This issue has been resolved in the release of OADP 1.2.2, and also OADP 1.1.6. Therefore, it is recommended that users upgrade to these releases.

Backup of an app with internal images partially failed with plugin panicked error

In previous releases of OADP 1.2, the backup of an application with internal images partially failed with plugin panicked error returned. The backup partially fails with this error in the Velero logs:

time="2022-11-23T15:40:46Z" level=info msg="1 errors encountered backup up item" backup=openshift-adp/django-persistent-67a5b83d-6b44-11ed-9cba-902e163f806c logSource="/remote-source/velero/app/pkg/backup/backup.go:413" name=django-psql-persistent
time="2022-11-23T15:40:46Z" level=error msg="Error backing up item" backup=openshift-adp/django-persistent-67a5b83d-6b44-11ed-9cba-902e163f8

This issue has been resolved in OADP 1.2.2. (OADP-1057).

ACM cluster restore was not functioning as expected due to restore order

In previous releases of OADP 1.2, ACM cluster restore was not functioning as expected due to restore order. ACM applications were removed and re-created on managed clusters after restore activation. (OADP-2505)

VM’s using filesystemOverhead failed when backing up and restoring due to volume size mismatch

In previous releases of OADP 1.2, due to storage provider implementation choices, whenever there was a difference between the application persistent volume claims (PVCs) storage request and the snapshot size of the same PVC, VM’s using filesystemOverhead failed when backing up and restoring.¬†This issue has been resolved in the Data Mover of OADP 1.2.2. (OADP-2144)

OADP did not contain an option to set VolSync replication source prune interval

In previous releases of OADP 1.2, there was no option to set the VolSync replication source pruneInterval. (OADP-2052)

Possible pod volume backup failure if Velero was installed in multiple namespaces

In previous releases of OADP 1.2, there was a possibility of pod volume backup failure if Velero was installed in multiple namespaces. (OADP-2409)

Backup Storage Locations moved to unavailable phase when VSL uses custom secret

In previous releases of OADP 1.2, Backup Storage Locations moved to unavailable phase when Volume Snapshot Location used custom secret. (OADP-1737)

For a complete list of all issues resolved in the release of OADP 1.2.2, see the list of OADP 1.2.2 resolved issues in Jira.

Known issues

The following issues have been highlighted as known issues in the release of OADP 1.2.2:

Must-gather command fails to remove ClusterRoleBinding resources

The oc adm must-gather command fails to remove ClusterRoleBinding resources, which are left on cluster due to admission webhook. Therefore, requests for the removal of the ClusterRoleBinding resources are denied. (OADP-27730)

admission webhook "clusterrolebindings-validation.managed.openshift.io" denied the request: Deleting ClusterRoleBinding must-gather-p7vwj is not allowed

OADP 1.1.6 release notes

The OADP 1.1.6 release notes lists any new features, resolved issues and bugs, and known issues.

Resolved issues

Restic restore partially failing due to Pod Security standard

OCP 4.14 introduced pod security standards that meant the privileged profile is enforced. In previous releases of OADP, this profile caused the pod to receive permission denied errors. This issue was caused because of the restore order. The pod was created before the security context constraints (SCC) resource. As this pod violated the pod security standard, the pod was denied and subsequently failed. OADP-2420

Restore partially failing for job resource

In previous releases of OADP, the restore of job resource was partially failing in OCP 4.14. This issue was not seen in older OCP versions. The issue was caused by an additional label being to the job resource, which was not present in older OCP versions. OADP-2530

For a complete list of all issues resolved in this release, see the list of OADP 1.1.6 resolved issues in Jira.

Add support for all the velero deployment server arguments

In previous releases of OADP, OADP did not facilitate the support of all the upstream Velero server arguments. This issue has been resolved in OADP 1.1.4 and all the upstream Velero server arguments are supported. OADP-1557

Data Mover can restore from an incorrect snapshot when there was more than one VSR for the restore name and pvc name

In previous releases of OADP, OADP Data Mover could restore from an incorrect snapshot if there was more than one Volume Snapshot Restore (VSR) resource in the cluster for the same Velero restore name and PersistentVolumeClaim (pvc) name. OADP-1822

Cloud Storage API BSLs need OwnerReference

In previous releases of OADP, ACM BackupSchedules failed validation because of a missing OwnerReference on Backup Storage Locations (BSLs) created with dpa.spec.backupLocations.bucket. OADP-1511

For a complete list of all issues resolved in this release, see the list of OADP 1.1.4 resolved issues in Jira.

Known issues

This release has the following known issues:

OADP backups might fail because a UID/GID range might have changed on the cluster

OADP backups might fail because a UID/GID range might have changed on the cluster where the application has been restored, with the result that OADP does not back up and restore OKD UID/GID range metadata. To avoid the issue, if the backed application requires a specific UUID, ensure the range is available when restored. An additional workaround is to allow OADP to create the namespace in the restore operation.

A restoration might fail if ArgoCD is used during the process due to a label used by ArgoCD

A restoration might fail if ArgoCD is used during the process due to a label used by ArgoCD, app.kubernetes.io/instance. This label identifies which resources ArgoCD needs to manage, which can create a conflict with OADP’s procedure for managing resources on restoration. To work around this issue, set .spec.resourceTrackingMethod on the ArgoCD YAML to annotation+label or annotation. If the issue continues to persist, then disable ArgoCD before beginning to restore, and enable it again when restoration is finished.

OADP Velero plugins returning "received EOF, stopping recv loop" message

Velero plugins are started as separate processes. When the Velero operation has completed, either successfully or not, they exit. Therefore if you see a received EOF, stopping recv loop messages in debug logs, it does not mean an error occurred. The message indicates that a plugin operation has completed. OADP-2176
