VMware Response to Apache Log4j Remote Code Execution Vulnerability: VMware Cloud Foundation is impacted by CVE-2021-44228, and CVE-2021-45046 as described in VMSA-2021-0028. To remediate these issues, see Workaround instructions to address CVE-2021-44228 & CVE-2021-45046 in VMware Cloud Foundation (KB 87095).
The VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) 4.0.1 on Dell EMC VxRail release includes the following
- Multi-pNIC/multi-vDS during bring-up: The deployment parameter workbook now provides five vSphere Distributed Switch (vDS) profiles that allow you to perform bring-up of hosts with two, four, or six physical NICs (pNICs) and to create up to two vSphere Distributed Switches for isolating system (Management, vMotion, VSAN) traffic from overlay (Host, Edge and Uplinks) traffic.
- Multi-pNIC/multi-vDS API support: The API now supports configuring a second vSphere Distributed Switch (vDS) using up to four physical NICs (pNICs), providing more flexibility to support high performance use cases and physical traffic separation.
- NSX-T cluster-level upgrade support: Users can upgrade specific host clusters within a workload domain so that the upgrade can fit into their maintenance windows.
- Kubernetes in the management domain: vSphere with Kubernetes is now supported in the management domain. With VMware Cloud Foundation Workload Management, you can deploy vSphere with Kubernetes on the management domain default cluster with only 4 hosts.
- API support for bring-up operations.
- Automated externalization of the vCenter Server in the management domain: Externalizing the vCenter Server that gets created during the VxRail first run is now automated as part of the bring-up process.
- L3 Aware IP Addressing (API only): VI workload domains now support the ability to use hosts from different L2 domains to create or expand clusters that use vSAN, NFS, or VMFS on FC as principal storage.
- BOM Updates: Updated Bill of Materials with new product versions.
