What’s Been Fixed

The following issues have been resolved in vCloud Automation Center release

OpenSSL issue for IaaS component regarding CVE-2014-0160 Heartbleed vulnerability
The 32-bit and 64-bit vCloud Automation Center Windows Guest Agents and the vCloud Automation Center PE Builder components have been updated to use OpenSSL 1.0.1g. While these components previously embedded OpenSSL 1.0.1c, they were not vulnerable to the Heartbleed issue and hence you are not required to recreate any templates that were created by using these components. Going forward it is recommended to use the updated versions of these components to avoid any confusion on whether or not these newly created templates are vulnerable to the Heartbleed issue.

OpenSSL issue for Identity Appliance regarding CVE-2014-0160 Heartbleed vulnerability
OpenSSL version for Identity Appliance has been upgraded to 1.0.1g.

Unable to login when the UPN username does not match the SAMAccountName
If you configure active directory over LDAP provider, and select one of the UPN suffix to be an alias of the provider, vCloud Automation Center does not convert the eUPN using the alias logic and the original UPN is the eUPN of the user account.

This issue has been fixed in this release.

Active directory over LDAP provider is not returning vsphere.local groups for direct active directory user members
If you login with the active directory user, which is part of vsphere.localadministrators group, vCenter Server is not visible as part of the inventory.

This issue has been fixed in this release.

The vmidentity-firstboot of Windows based vCenter Server fails while trying to replicate with SSO in an embedded deployment
The Identity Service does not throw an exception if domain state is not compatible with the currently configured native active directory. This prevents IDM from starting up, log in to vCenter Server fails, and browsing of IDP information fail, and the system gets into unusable state.

This issue has been fixed in this release.

Native active directory times out when you try to see users in vCloud Automation Center
When you try to add the identity store for whichever native active directory domain that you want to use, for example sqa.local or sqa2k8.local, then you need to add administrators. At this point, native active directory might display an error message Connection timed out.

This issue has been fixed in this release.
