  1. Windows 2019 node support?

    1. Neticated says:

      I’d also like to know when do you plan to support Server 2019?
      As far as I can tell, documentation still only lists: Windows Server OS installed (valid versions: 2012 R2, 2016, 1709, or 1803)
      Is that correct??

      1. The documentation has been updated recently. From SF Blog:

        “We now support Windows Server 2019 and Windows Server 1809 for Azure and Standalone Service Fabric Clusters starting from 6.4.654.9590. “

    VS 2019 support for mesh?

  3. This release breaks DNS resolution in Docker.. None of my java services running in SF nodes can resolve SQL, Service Bus or Cosmos DB.. Name resolution failure. This is a Linux Cluster.

    Reverting to v6.4.661.1 resolved the problem.

  4. Neticated says:

    The 6.5 upgrade is pretty cool, thanks SF team!
    In particular, for an on-premise gmsa cluster:
    a) deleting invalid nodes is no longer a hacky/confusing experience
    b) SF and SF Explorer is much better at showing correct Node up/down/error status and showing most recent/relevant events
