Removed or deprecated features

Some features have been removed or deprecated in StorageGRID 11.3. You must review these items to understand whether you need to update client applications or modify your configuration before you upgrade.

Temporary storage pools are deprecated

Designating a storage pool to use as a temporary location in an ILM rule has been deprecated in StorageGRID 11.3, due to changes in how objects are ingested into the grid. Any existing ILM rules that use temporary pools will continue to operate as they have in the past. However, new rules should not use temporary pools.

The CMS service (Content Management System), which was deprecated in StorageGRID 11.2, has now been removed. This service formerly managed object data that was queued by the legacy ILM system. Related to the removal of the CMS, port 1503 is no longer required for internal grid node communications.
