I initially posted this issue on CentOS-mirror a week ago but did not receive any response.
I’m looking for a resolution to a small issue with the cloud image repository for the latest CentOS-7 image.
As far as I understand, the latest release of the CentOS-7 image should always be posted to http://cloud.CentOS.org/CentOS/7/images/CentOS-7-x86_
The checksum of this file should match the highest numbered version of the cloud image listed in http://cloud.CentOS.org/CentOS/7/images/sha256sum.txt
However, the actual checksum for CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud.qcow2 is returning as b56ed1a3a489733d3ff91aca2011f8720c0540b9aa27e46dd0b4f575318dd1fa which matches for CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud-1608.qcow2 but NOT
The latest image available should be CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud-1612.qcow2
with a checksum of 559bebb4abb2fdf3bd88c917cc11ef b1975bfe4494e666d133a3148ec4e6225d.
To further the confusion, the ‘Last modified’ image is CentOS-7-x86_64-GenericCloud-1611.qcow2 and not -1612.
I picked up on this discrepancy because I have a script that monitors &
updates our openstack images when new images become available for various distributions.
If someone could please correct these inconsistencies it would be greatly appreciated.
