Re: [cf-bosh] PLEASE READ: BOSH-Lite stemcell broken

I see there is a new version (3146).

Does that address the issues relating to 3126? Or should we stick with 2776 until advised otherwise?

Hey all,

TL;DR: Please DO NOT use BOSH-Lite stemcell 3126 for local development or CI, use the previous version, 2776.

This issue has been announced multiple times before, but people are still hitting it. Unfortunately it's a hard issue to diagnose, and by the time it happens you might not remember this email, but several different users and core CF development teams have sunk a fair bit of time tripping over this so apologies for the alarmist subject line.

BOSH-Lite stemcell 3126 is not compatible with consul-release. This only affects certain use cases, but it's recommended to err on the side of caution and not use this stemcell. Use 2776 for local development, and if you're deploying to BOSH-Lite in your CI pipelines, and you're pulling in the latest stemcell, make sure you don't pull in 3126. If you're using Concourse for CI, it's very simple to disable a particular version of a resource.

If you'd like a more nuanced explanation of what the issue is, and whether or not it's likely to affect your use case, please feel free to ask.
