Released 1 August 2019.
This is the initial release of Remediate.
- Unable to install Remediate on Debian8 with the default kernel module. Upgrade to Kernal 4.9 and install Remediate again.
- Network discovered nodes being shown as cloud instances. Hosts discovered via their IP address will be counted as a cloud instance and visible in the top cloud instance by region card.
- Due to inconsistent DNS lookups, tasks fail to run on discovered hosts. When discovered hosts are running on the same domain, an inconsistent DNS lookup between discovering hosts and running tasks on discovered hosts results in tasks failing.
- In a multi-network environment, the first discovery run might not identify the IP or hostname. Wait for the second discovery run, which happens automatically after four hours.
