Hi All,

DSS 12 made the switch for the base OS to AlmaLinux.

The logs on the fleet manager seem to indicate that the base image for containerized execution is still centos7. Is that correct? What are the plans/timelines to update the base image if indeed we are still on centos7 that is fast approaching EOL?

Thanks,

Yash

    Hi @yashpuranik
    ,
    If you use the Setup K8s and Spark step in your instance the base images should be using alma8 on Fleet manager v12+Screenshot 2023-09-18 at 8.37.42 AM.png

    If you are using a custom ansible step or similar then you need to specifically pass the --distrib alama8 flag to the build-base-image command.

    Thanks,

    For reference, the exat keyword and arg to pass were: :

    --distrib almalinux8
