VMware Tanzu Operations Manager (OpsMan)
Upgrade Planner shows only Java Buildpack versions with 3 digits - Upgrade Planner team is working on making Upgrade Planner read 3 digits versions and Java Buildpack team has been notified so they release versions with 3 digits. Check the workaround in this article.
VMware Tanzu Application Services for VM (TAS)
TAS VMs running AntiVirus impacted by Unix.Malware.Kaiji-10003916-0 - On June 7, 07:24:15, ClamAV added a new Detection Signature Unix.Malware.Kaiji-10003916-0 to its list. This was reported to cause many false positives and was subsequently removed at 23:46:10 UTC 2023. This KB article has important information regarding the problem and its resolution.
How to run a smoke-test errand manually on TAS and Isolation Segment - The smoke-test is a set of commands that setup and deploy an app, org and space on the environment, get app logs and stats to ensure basic functionality of the platform is working as expected. Sometimes the smoke-test fails and it can be useful to run the steps manually to find the point of failure.
Upgrade to TAS 2.13 fails on smoke tests - Advised scaling up log cache VMs. A change in the loggregator architecture, namely a new dependency on log cache VMs, manifested in failed smoke test.
Apps Manager UI: Scale app feature APPLY CHANGES button cannot be clicked in TAS 2.13.20 and 2.13.21 - With the release of TAS 3.X there has been a change in how the product handles the app log rate limitations. After upgrading VMware Tanzu Application Service to 2.13.20 or 2.13.21, when trying to scale an app with Apps Manager UI, the APPLY CHANGES button is grayed out and cannot be clicked.
Upgrade Planner fails on Scheduler with error "Target versions you've selected have dependencies that are not met" - The workaround for this is to add Java Buildpack pack in "Manually Add Tiles" section and select a version that meets the dependency in both Current and Target version. Example 4.49.1. This will bypass the lock and allow you to generate a plan.
