Key Changes in AKO 1.2.1

  • The AKO pod restarts if it is unable to establish a connection after retries with the Avi Controller on the first boot-up.

  • The AKO pod uses a stateful sets instead of an earlier deployment yaml to ensure that the two AKO pods do not run simultaneously at a given point in time.

  • VRF based routing support with AKO has been deprecated

  • Pod Security Policies for the AKO pod are provided in 1.2.1

End of Support

VRF based Static Routing for Pod Connectivity
