New features and capabilities

  • Collect diagnostics from bastion machines.
  • Fix an issue where a Go panic can occur during reprovisioning of the instances.
  • Print a warning message when the disk size allocated to the root volume is less than 78G.
  • Set the minimum requirements for CPU and Memory per machine to 2 cores and 2GB.
  • Switched the kubeaddons base image to distroless and run the controller as a non-root user. Addresses the static (not executed) CVE-2019-25013 in the prior base image.
  • Some supported operating systems cannot support GPU workloads due to limitations in the current deployment architecture for GPU drivers. The documentation has been updated to clarify current issues with GPU support. (COPS-6771)


  • The latest version of Terraform fails when all parameters are empty or nil. This caused an issue when setting the value to 0 bastion nodes. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented upgrades when new Terraform plugin versions were released.
  • Instance ID changes are no longer ignored and are handled properly by Terraform for the 2nd volume attachment.

Updated the Let’s Encrypt tutorial

The Setting up Let’s Encrypt certificate tutorial has been updated to reflect changes introduced with cert-manager v.1.

Create a cluster with no workers

An issue with creating clusters with no workers was corrected. Clusters can now be created with no workers and then scaled up with workers at a later time or scaled down to zero without issue.

Fix deleting certain files during shutdown or reset

A problem with the konvoy down or konvoy reset commands failing if dedicated named devices were mounted on /var/lib/kublet or /var/lib/containerd has been corrected. (COPS-6771)
